  My Mayor is A Suphero. Is Yours?

Greatest. Mayor. Ever.

Not only is Toronto Mayor David Miller a progressive politician, an effective administrator and a champion for Toronto, he is also a lifesaver.

Yesterday, David Miller talked a suicidal, knife-wielding man off a railing in City Hall. Said a statement from the mayor's office:

"Mayor Miller spoke with the man and coaxed him off the railing. He also convinced him to relinquish the knife."

And, to top it all off, he didn't even take the credit. Said Miller:

"I would like to thank the Toronto Police Service for their speed, professionalism and compassion."

My old mayor was out of the closet gay. That was pretty brave. I think Miller topped Murray, though.
the ex-mayor of my hometown, didn't even live in the City (Wayne Thompson of Niagara Falls)...but he was Batman in his sparetime.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
