Fewer things strike me as funny right now as this does. I mean, we just advertised a mayorial position -- subject to an election -- on MONSTER. Yes, that is how you know that you have fallen far. I'm a little concerned about these "concerned citizens with a passion for Cleveland." Let's say that you run for office - fully funded by them, as promised. Let's now stretch reality and say that you won. These "concerned citizens" are going to "help on a continuing basis." Does that mean that once mayor, you have to answer to them? That they are calling the shots, and you are just like the Queen of England, just a figurehead? That's of concern. If they are paying for your campaign, when do they collect and what is that collection? Just something for my friends, who are updating their resumes, to consider.
