political/gossip junkies (are they any different?),will love this one..
we have the incumbent ..described as part p-diddy and part clinton..with a trail of smelly packages in his wake..time magazine naming him as one of americas’ three worst mayors..
his challenger, of course, is making the most of his opponents (ahem) indiscretions and lifestyle..
it’s getting a bit dirty down on the hustings..
this story is also a backgrounder on a city in the death grip of urban decay/de-population..
