River Ridge chieftain makes an excellent, if wholly inadvertent, case to promote Acy all the way to Tolling Junta.


Props to the newspaper’s Braden Lammers for extracting one of the top quotes of the year from Mark Robinson, holder of the Kerry Stemler Chair for River Ridge Oligarchy Development, who had this to say about Jerry Acy (Robinson’s adjutant) upon learning that Acy had recorded a second OWI in three months’ time:

“Based on the limited information, I don’t think his job is in jeopardy at this moment, assuming that he will take seriously the advice … we’re going impose.”

Imposed advice.

If only it could be so simple for those of us just beneath the upper strata of mover-shakers. Oh, well. Perhaps we can bike to work.
