Maybe Mr. seely was too busy dreaming up his basketball analogy to provide other meaningful commentary, or reporting, or whatevere it is the Managing Editor of the SeattleWeekly does do (thanks, in advance).
Donaldson Rips Nickels Over Handling of Police, Roads, Fire Stations, City Light, Labor...In Other Words, Just About Everything
By Mike Seely in Campaign 2009, City of Seattle, Civics 101, Politics
Gargantuan mayoral candidate James Donaldson delivered a speech to the King County Labor Council's Endorsement Committee today, in which he backed Mayor Nickels down in the post and threw a bunch of elbows, the sharpest of which can be reviewed after the jump/below.
Read the rest of the story, "Donaldson Rips Nickels", here.
Mr. Seely then went on to provide a quote and a list of charges Mr. Donaldson levied against Mr. Nickels.
As much as I dislike Mr. Nickels' policies, and like Mr. Donaldson as a person, the public was not served well by Managing Editor Mike Seely giving Mr. Donaldson a free shot at scoring political points (a clear path to the basket).
Presenting problems without solutions is called complaining. In that light, I offer a question Mr. Seely might try next time he has a brush with greatness:
How would Mr. Donaldson pay for the things he is unhappy that Mr. Nickels cut?
Have a great day,
