Last week Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley demanded a pony from Streetcar supporters. While a childish act, it wasn't the most childish Cranley could have been. After much hard work, by many people, Cranley was presented with a pony, it's name was SORTA. Then Cranley's childishness reached an all time high when he stamped his feet yesterday at a press conference and declared he wanted a BLUE pony. Acting like an ungrateful, selfish, and duplicitous child when he gets exactly what he asks for is not the type of leadership the city wants or needs.
The 5-year-old antics just don't cut it in a mayor. Even Charlie Luken must admit that Cranley needs a time out for the disingenuous offer.
