The mayor likes to get real earnest when he's got his gavel handy and the camera is rolling. At Monday's meeting he even took off his glasses to show how upset he was at a particular Sara that criticized Laredo. But if I remember correctly, when he took on Glenn Beck, he folded like a cheap suit. When the residents of Los Martinez neighborhood took him on, he just faded away into his vehicle. And let's not forget that Meg Guerra of LareDOS handed him his ass after he denied her her 1st Amendment rights.
But that was so long ago. The mayor will stick up for himself and his people.
