Mississippi, the most backward state in the Union, took only 17 days to resolve its Nov. 3rd election glitch. Aberdeen, Maryland’s new mayor, Tea-Party Republican Patrick McGrady decided after 15 days not to decide. Where’s the sense of urgency? Where’s the respect for a fair democratic process? McGrady’s dilly-dally behavior may be his reaccuring “deer-in-the headlight” syndrome but its more likely his lethargic asleep-at-the-wheel  attitude.
