Brad Messer Commentary
Most of you know what happened here yesterday. I resembled an ice skater in competition who falls flat on his keister.
I am going to brush myself off, and try to finish what I started.
It was about me being too willing to forgive people.
After someone has screwed up, if they act sorry and apologize even halfway good, I lean toward saying Give em a second chance.
I reveal this forgiveness weakness so that, as my support group, yall can spot my symptoms, and bring me back to reality if I need it.
This is about mayor Ed Garza, shrinking violet of local politics. I've been claiming that he hasnt been an effective leader. Most recently, in the matter of us versus U-P.
But now he's put together a delegation to go face the evil empire. Next Wednesday, our guysll meet with the chairman of Union Pacific in Omaha.
This is the kind of stuff that needs to be done. Things are accomplished that way.
I know this Omaha excursion isnt huge. It aint the Big Red One hitting Omaha Beach on D-day. But it is one step, and things get done one step at a time.
So yall keep a lookout on me. If I start saying that maybe the mayor has finally shifted into Leadership second gear, splash me with cold water and slap me right smart. Bring me to my senses.
Help me remember a leopard doesnt change his spots. And spine transplants arent possible either.
However, this certainly looks like a valid first step. Whoops, there I go again...
