Cerebral Wheel-Spinning: Mayor, Make It Stop 

If I didn't care and if Richmond weren't my home, I'd be having quite the snicker at Mayor Dwight Jones' expense (“Chasing Potholes: Mayor of ‘Poverty Capital' Hits Streets,” Street Talk, Sept. 29). Does this guy even realize he's the mayor of a city? A city with terrific potential as a Civil War tourist destination? A city that's embraced minor league baseball to a degree that's surprised even the team's owners? A city whose citizens are sick of all the studies, consultants, committees and think tanks and finally want to see some positive action come out of all this cerebral wheel spinning? If Mayor McClown can wake up for a minute, hire an economic development director who knows more than how to add and subtract, talk to people who truly have a vision for what Richmond can be, and begin to implement these ideas, I might have a city I can truly be proud of ... maybe even in my lifetime.
