Is it just me, or

is blogger Joe Monahan a little crotchety lately?

Tuesday he reamed APD Chief Gordon Eden; called him a poseur.  I bit on poseur, and found;

a person who pretends to be what he or she is not ...
and wondered who of them isn't posing?

The only thing I would add to Eden's evaluation is that he doesn't have the support of the people he "leads".  They're not being led, they're following orders; a distinction and a difference.

I would point to the need for a survey of the rank and file; every last one of them.  We need to know what they think is wrong and how they think it needs to be fixed.  I doubt that their legitimate concerns over compensation are the only problems they would identify.  Is their education, training and experience of no account what so ever?  In whose interests are subordinates not surveyed?

This morning, Monahan let the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and its perpetual President and CEO Teri Cole experience what looks like his own growing frustration with the never ending bullshit that politics and government have turned out to be - my words, not his.
