30 minutes on Columbus time

Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory recessed Wednesday's city council meeting at 3:15 p.m., saying they were taking a break for "30 minutes, more or less" so council members could continue negotiating over a 2007-08 budget.

The mayor reconvened that meeting at 2:15 a.m. Thursday morning. "We are back from a 30-minute recess ... more or less," the mayor said to a roar of laughter.

Mallory, who spent years in Columbus as a representative in the House, and then as a Senator explained he was measuring time in Columbus terms.

"In Columbus, if you say a 5-minute break, it's an hour. A 15-minute break is two hours. And if you say a 30-minute break, it could mean anything," he said.

Council will reconvene its meeting tonight at 6, when they hope to have a budget to approve.

Let me see. Mallory promised to end the "chaos" at city hall.

I have never heard things more chaotic!

He promised to fully fund the human services policy. Not even close.

He brags about Foutain Square, which he described as a waste of money in the campaign.

Cut crime. Record homicides.

And the list goes on. Guess he needs the bodygaurd to keep citizens away who have memories. Thank god he has the Enquirer to cover for him.

consensus building takes time - don't be impatient -
he didn't exactly say - consensus building - with whom - about what - or did you happy and triumphant voters miss that?
