Hurricane Hugo?

The Telegraph, again today, reported about Mayor Ellis proclamation of solidarity with Hugo Chavez. Johnny Floyd, founder of The World Conference of Mayors, said the group had not sanctioned the Mayor's actions, but Floyd has learned too late that Ellis seldom waits for or feels he needs anyone's sanction. Giving the story a national audience, Neal Boortz picked it up for his radio program, calling the Mayor "a blithering idiot." The only question now is: will this story grow or die?" Those of us who have lived through the Ellis years in Macon know that this is just Jack being Jack. He doesn't speak for most of us, and never will.
