I would have preferred it if all politicians had stayed clear of the celebration of Vin Scully at Dodger Stadium Friday night. But there was Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, horning in on and benefiting from the light cast by a man who could teach all politicians what real public service is about.
At least Garcetti was just there to present Scully with a key to the city, and did not linger with intent. Happily, considering the nature of the recipient, Los Angeles city employees will not now — as has been the case after some previous entertainers and athletes have been given a similar award — have to change the lock.
