Luke to distance himself from rich old white guys? Not likely

Does this mean Luke and Yarone have to take down the “No Gurls Allowed” signs from their wing of the City-County Building?

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, speaking to the crowd, said he had not made many female appointments since taking office, citing two additions, but pledged to “diversifying” city government wherever possible.

“I want you to know we will work for equal pay,” said the mayor, clutching one of the cardboard “Will Work for Equality” signs.

Well, we can all pack up and go home because Luke made a promise and we all know how good he is on … well, telling the truth. 

Good lord, the boy-mayor has absolutely no intention of appointing anyone who isn't part of the good old boys network on his watch.  He might maybe perhaps appoint a socially conservative white woman who knows her place and can keep her mouth shut.  Maybe. 

This is the adminstration that fired BJ Leber.  Sure there's a handsome new puppet instead of an incapacitated old one, but the fact is that the power mongerers have not changed.

Do you think the Will Work for Equality sign burned in his sweaty clutch or left a Harry Potter scar on his palm?
