Don't Bag on the Mayor of Seven Hills

Posted By on Tue, Aug 7, 2007 at 9:14 AM

Your tart disdain for Seven Hills Mayor David Bentkowski [First Punch, second item, August 1] may have been exaggerated. So what if he recommends that his constituents assert that their town is "awesome?" Few people on the sunny side of forty would say "awe-inspiring" instead. And so what if he yearns to be master of ceremonies at the Miss Seven Hills Pageant? And did the councilman never hear of the editorial "we?" Thoreau said politics was just the cigar smoke of a man. In these days of McMansions and gated communities, a little Norman Rockwellian illusion is still well received. William Dauenhauer Willowick
