Miami elected officials earn their poor reputations ... by gimleteye
'Use Me' is the tag line on municipal trash containers in southern India. Recent decisions by unreformable majorities of our elected officials (Dolphins stadium, FPL nuclear) give birth to the notion these colorful, useful bins -- decorated to be something other than what they are --, could be screwed down to concrete flooring outside city and county commissioners in Miami to remind voters that irony has not entirely gone extinct. Not that metaphors would do much good to penetrate the concrete shaped positions of the unreformable majority, but one can dream: feeble ideas hold aloft hope for improvement.
