Can I Get An Amen?

From John Saltas this week at City Weekly. "I’m among the legion who wish for Rocky to be remembered for more than the Main Street flip-flop, the cutesy little orange pedestrian flags, the bassackwards parking on 200 South, the failure to generate support for an entertainment district downtown, the dearth of new jobs and retail vitality downtown, the acrimony between his office and the Utah State legislature, the costly exodus of city employees from his office, or for his rope-a-dope tactic of “I’m not fighting with the Mormons” fight with the Mormons. I want Rocky to win something more than the self-indulgent accolades he gets for buying energy-efficient light bulbs. Something that yields more for Salt Lake City than a pat on the back for the person, who if in Guinness, would be categorized as the World Greatest Narcissist."

the cutesy little orange pedestrian flags...

That is one thing that Rocky haters I know actually like about him.

We need to snag one of those orange flags and tape it to our webcam, so senators know when they might be on camera.

Maybe the Mayor would be willing to hook us up, which could serve as his permanent legacy here at the Legislature.

I can't stand John Saltas. He's constantly pro-Rocky despite the fact that Rocky is the worst mayor our city has ever had.

And then Saltas hounded Deedee Corradini during her entire tenure, although she was probably the best mayor we've ever had. Corradini knew how to get things done.
