Morning Call as Magician
In a clumsy act of distraction, today's Morning Call editorial, tries to shift the blame for firing the police officer from the mayor to city council. In reality, magic aside, Allentown City Council has NEVER voted against the mayor's preference on any issue since his election. Council's function as a rubber stamp is a matter of public record, making today's column nothing more than damage control for the mayor, in regard to a very unpopular decision with the general public. Blind support of the mayor is bad enough, using others as a scapegoat is worse.
