I like him. Especially since Hank Stolz asked me what was going on way back in March and I in sleep-deprived state said he was having a vicious Mars opposition and every little thing he did was mud. At least that month. And that things would look up for him in April. Which they did! Score another for Symboline. july is his next tricky month but my experience (modest and frankly bizarre -- my father was a politico who came out for Ed King and had various patronage jobs in his post-newspaper days) is that the Statehouse is a relatively quiet place during the hot months, despite the building having some really wonderful naturally cool places due to smart architecture -- when, oh when did we forget to build smart? Anyway, quiet except for the scheming.
