David Crowley, Christopher Smitherman, and Catherine Barrett.
I wish I was making this up. Former Cincinnati Council Member Christopher Smitherman has a weekly radio show on 1480 WCIN. I've heard small portions before and tuned in today. Of all the things happening in this city and across the country, can you believe Smitherman was talking about the 2004 Cincinnati Police Department audit!? This guy is stuck living in the past.
Later, I heard Smitherman make a reference to Malcolm X and the need to be organized. Can anyone point to any organizational effort being led or supported by Smitherman?
While still on Council, Smitherman used to complain about the mainstream white press never asking him -- a financial planner -- about financial matters. I used to think he had a point. But, with the Banks deal being in the news, property tax appraisals being complained about, and all other sorts of financial problems facing our city, Smitherman picked an old, worthless, non-newsworthy police audit as his topic for today's show. Ridiculous!
