That's a very short barbeque at only an hour. And Mike may only grace folk with his presence for half that.

Well, he best not wear black face.

I don't see Duggan as a wigger actually. He does see himself as the great white hope to the community. Duggan is as duplicitous as Snyder as they work together. There is plenty of resentment in the black community over the white man's ice being colder. But enough blacks figured out the city was melting as it was with the stream of black rulers taking their cut and leaving nothing but grief.

The timing is right for Duggan to bring resources and order to the city. It wouldn't take much to seem like a lot. The bankruptcy will put the finances on a path to solvency. Then it's a matter of efficiency with the remaining resources. Duggan is better than Benny in that regard. Benny always overspent his budget. It also sticks in my craw that he had 21 officers assigned to guard his parking space when he was police chief after he found someone took it one day. I visualize officers fanning him with huge leaves on a stick on hot days like the old movies of Saudi kings.
