Mayor Berke was 15 minutes late to the promotion and retirement ceremony on Thursday at the Police Service Center and he didn't even apologize. Please don't tell everyone the police is so important to the city and then you and your staff can't appear to the ceremony on time.
I can't wait for you to run for governor, Andy, so I can campaign against you.

Fifteen minutes late?
Come on, Rick, the sun still rose in the east, set in the west. The flowers will bloom and the crickets will chirp. The world will not change simply because Andy Berke was a few minutes late to a retirement program. Those things usually don't start on time, anyway.
Relax. Cool it. Kick back and enjoy life. That's why you retired, remember?
