About Willie Herenton's announcement that he would resign as mayor, effective in mid-July:

"I'd like to point out that the phrases 'federal investigation,' 'criticism,' and 'run for Congress' were all mentioned about the same man. This is more than 'Willie Fatigue' — this is his escape from all his screw-ups under the guise of a congressional run." — hollyhollyhello

"Resigning from office and losing to Cohen is what we call a 'win-win.'" — Charlie Burr

"Free at last!!! Free at last!!! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!!!" — EHD Res

"A sh*t storm on the horizon is the only logical explanation for his early retirement." — jeff

"Don't forget the Big Dog in the suddenly started race.

A C Wharton already has a big lead in cash on hand, thanks to surprisingly early (or so it seemed then) fund-raising. Why, it's almost like he suspected something." — mike hollihan

Comment of the Week:

"I haven't seen so many smiles in this town since the U of M basketball team beat UCLA in '08. It's like the end of the Grinch special when all the Whos down in Whoville join hands to sing 'Fah who for-aze! Dah who dor-aze!'" — Phlo
