I Passed The Save Richmond IQ Test

Since he asked me personally to take his quiz,.....

Save Richmond "Yes, that’s right, I’m talking to you — the guy with the bloodshot eyes, sniffly nose and chattering teeth. ".......>>>>>>>

I took the plunge and waded through all 1,800 words. Here are my favorite quotes.
  • 3 - D
    Councilperson Marty Jewell stated that it was he — and not Reva Trammell or Douglas Conner — who was the Mayor’s biggest and most shameful bootlicker on Richmond City Council… then he retracted his comments and said it might be Conner after all.
  • 6 - A
    Mayor Goldman would form a “Unity Council” to advise him. This inclusive mix of residents would include citizen representatives, members of the “business community,” neighborhood association reps, the head of the Richmond PTA and others.
  • 7 - C
    Norfolk Councilman Don Williams warily pointed to Richmond’s example and said, “You could get someone who is charismatic and has no idea how to manage things” — meaning Richmond’s current leadership.

All in all it was a well written article, everybody comes out looking stupid.
I think it should have been done as a minseries though.

How did I do? I got 9 out of 10. I was confused by question 8.

Reva Trammel, a name from the past... She showed up a couple of years ago at an event with some well dressed reps from the city that I was at. Reva? She was wearing tight jeans and sporting one of the most amazing camel toes I've ever seen...

I actually like the idea of this "Unity Council" though I'm not certain how well it would work in reality. As it stands now there are so many walls between Wilder and the public it's ridiculous. Having someone who at least pretends they are listening to the people and not just their ego and the Richmond elite would be a refreshing change.

I am through with the pretending part. LDW has been pretending for 3 years. "My door is always open." he says, except that it's not.

I'd trade experience for sincerity in a heartbeat. PG is too in love with his own cleverness. I'd take Jackie Jackson before PG.

With our hopelessly screwed up City Charter, I don't know who or how anyone can get elected, but that's the subject of another blog.
