The King of Boston
by

Sunday’s Boston Globe had an interesting profile of Boston mayor Thomas Menino and his governing strategy. This strategy could be described as “hands-on,” as in the article, or more simply as tyrannical. A representative sample:

[Menino] said he wants the flexibility and discretion to govern Boston’s diverse and changing neighborhoods as he sees fit.

“If you have hard-and-fast rules,’’ he said, “it’s not going to work.’’

It’s amazing that city politics allow people like Menino not only to grasp so much power, but also to revel openly in it in the press.
