The Long Plunge to Greatness

Oakland Mayor
Ron Dellums gave his State of the City talk last night. He says he's confident that his term–regarded by many spectators as an era of continuing police department scandals, continuing economic problems, continuing high crime rates, and continuing malfeasance among some high-paid public officials–will be remembered "as the period when
Oakland laid the 
foundation for success." He further opined, "We're on the
precipice of the greatest period in
Oakland's history." Mr. Mayor: might want to look up "precipice" again.
