In the war with City Council, or on City Council, or concerning City Council. Whatever. City Council pulled out its biggest weapon yet:


That’s right. They gave a big giant, “Pbbbbth!” to cutting their own budgets down to the Act 47 recommended level (does the headline “Council refuses to cut its own budget” shock anyone at all?  Anyone?  Anyone?  Zober?).

This of course comes on the heels of Council insisting that Lukey’s administration cut back take-home cars to Act 47 levels.

Is there a picture of Calvin rolling his eyes? Insert it here, please.

A word of advice.  Council better be careful with the “Pbbbth”s.  They don’t need badass Lukey throwing around his, “There’s more where that came from.”  Or his “I know you are, but what am I?”  Or his particularly powerful, “Oh, yeah?!  So’s your mother!”

    Act 47 says it’s okay. There’s no double-standard here.

    Maybe today’s City-County merger report will recommend getting rid of City Council as a first step towards merger. That’s why “Our Mayor” kept it under wraps all this time.

    We should just get George Specter a little tiny sign on a stick that reads “It’s Legal”.
