Fenty Reaches New Heights in Blather
Kudos to commenter "al gonzales" for pointing this out.
Yesterday, WAMU-FM reporter Kavitha Cardoza did a piece [Windows Media/RealPlayer] on the DCPS budget hearing held Tuesday, which was announced only six days ahead of time and which only "about a dozen" persons reportedly attended.
Kind of a boring piece, with requisite outrage from veteran activists Mary Levy and Margot Berkey—until Cardoza put Mayor Adrian M. Fenty on the spot about the short notice.
His verbatim reply, if you can call it that: "Yeah, I think the person who said it right is that we're providing an information in real time probably summed it up best."
A typical content-free response from Fenty, sure, but that isn't even a sentence, far as LL can parse. Replied Cardoza, "What does that—I don't understand what that means."
Said Fenty, "I can't translate. All I can give you is a response to your question."
In that case, we're all still waiting.
