City Hall is still more talk than walk, but Mayor Dwight Jones' (No. 7) chief administrative officer appears more focused on inner-city issues than his predecessor.

It's far from enough though. At times it seems Byron Marshall has become chief guardian of a city bureaucracy hobbled by cautious politicking.
