I wonder about this too sometimes. Here in Canada we've had our own sensational political news lately ("crack smoking mayor" sound familiar?). The story and the tolerance for the actions of this one politician are bizarre to me. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but it has crossed my mind that focus on one crazy mayor could easily draw attention away from something else that's happening. It's just such a weird series of events.
Makes me glad I have a straightforward, non-political job.
Bo - it sounds like you're very fortunate with your new mechanic. That case of beer probably made his day, and will likely ensure a great working relationship between the two of you. Good mechanics are hard to find!
