Ypsilanti meets Yarone

Lest anyone think this is a political post... I just think it is hilarious. I presume this is not an early April Fool's post: It seems that the youngest member of the Ypsilanti City Council was in town over the weekend and showed up unannounced at the mayor's office expecting an immediate audience. Something about feeling the 'brotherhood*' of elected officials. Strange enough right there, but he seems to be affronted that he only got through to Yarone after great effort. Sounds like he then took the opportunity to lecture ol' Yarone on somebody's definition of 'professional courtesy'. Think about this whole episode for a sec. Someone shows up at the Mayor's door on St. Patrick's Day, the 2nd biggest St. Patty's day in the nation any local news outlet will tell you, half the city is drunk, it's the middle of an election season no less and says he would like to walk right in and immediately see the mayor. Honestly, I would have let the guy in just becasue I figure anyone creative enough to pretend to be on the Ypsilanti city council deserves a minute of the mayor's time. Mostly I give the staff up on the 5th floor a lot of credit for not calling Mayview. You can't make this stuff up.

Next time have your people call his people to set something up... that or just try calling ahead.

* must not be many women in office in Ypsilanti.

update:

Ypsilanti has responded and they say I have been cupcaked. Have I? See the comments and some of the other posts on the East Cross Street blog.

I don't know why anyone would just show up unannounced at the office of the Mayor in a city like ours and expect to just talk to him.

What a waste of time.

P.S. For those have watched the video of the Spaghetti harvest and still don't get it, it was a JOKE. 'Nuff said. Now go back to work before we call your boss. (grin)

Wow, and I thought it was just my Wisconsinite dad who had this sense of "humor." I am happy - and a bit disturbed - that he wasn't an isolated case.

Twasn't funny. I'm not saying that in a "weee... are not amused" tone. I'm saying that as, dude, don't quit your day job.
