Mayor Earns Points for City’s New Jail 

For 25 years city leaders of every political persuasion decried conditions at the City Jail but never did anything. This inaction was in spite of a general consensus that these conditions amounted to human-rights violations. So I take issue with Scott Bass, who not once but twice, described the mayor's first three years as "lackluster". In my book, when an elected official does the right thing on a vital — but politically risky — issue, he isn't lackluster. He's an effective leader.
