This story, coming from my hometown, has kind of touched a nerve. This mayor has taken the first step towards doing the right thing: leave. many a man has gone to the gallows for crimes of association. however, when one escapes from a lion’s den, one should not look away, for the beasts have strong sense of smell and sharp eyesight. The mayor needs to run to a group he trusts and seek refuge there. if he has none he trusts then he needs to form one ASAP. If nothing else at least there is comfort in numbers. Judging from public response to his actions, it would not be long before he has a full house. Good luck Mr Mayor.
