Sworn to Secrecy

October 26th, 2007 by Editor B

I really hate this. I just got a call from a well-informed person in city government, who shared some juicy info that I’m just bustin’ to share. It concerns some dirty dealings related to a recent post on this blog. Problem is, in order to get in on this fascinating dope, I had to promise not to put it into writing. So, I can’t write about it. This is killing me. But at least I can say: I know something you don’t.

    PLEASE let this be something along the lines of the City Council deciding to unanimously call for Jordan’s immediate resignation!

  2. Frolic Says:

    I really hope it’s not that, because calling for his resignation is useless. He’s elected and can only be recalled or impeached.

  3. Frolic Says:

    Sorry, not useless, but more a gesture than a real action.

  4. Civitch Says:

    Technically, such a gesture would have no legal weight, but public opinion-wise, it would be tremendous. At the very least, it would virtually guarantee that the Hat wouldn’t be reelected.

  5. Frolic Says:

    That’s true, but can we wait until the next election?

    Surely not. That was on the t.v. news last night. Come on Bart, give us a hint.

  8. David Says:

    LOL. Well, maybe Bart got punked and the call wasn’t such a scoop after all.

    Let’s read closely. I think Bart gave us some hints about what topic he’s alluding to.

    “dirty dealings”

    “recent post”

    Don’t you just HATE it when that happens? I have an excellent and interesting piece of dirt, too, but all I can do is talk to myself about it.

  11. Howie Luvzus Says:

    I feel really bad now. I don’t have any inside info on anyone. And in my last post I called Brian Williams an idiot.

  12. Marion Says:

    Wow I should try that…”I know something the world doesn’t know…”. Awwh! but did Xy promise too?

  13. liprap Says:

    Well, NYAHHHHH to you, too.

  14. Editor B Says:

    Sorry Frolic, I really can’t give any hints, except to say that Oyster is a very observant mollusk, but that doesn’t really matter anyway because this tidbit is pretty much unguessable. I’m afraid the fantasy of the Council uniting to call for Jordan’s resignation is just that: a fantasy. From the looks of this news the Council won’t be uniting to do much anytime soon, I’m sorry to say.

    I can deal with the tease so long as it is something that we will know at some point…hopefully soon. We will, won’t we?

  16. Editor B Says:

    Yes, this should come to light in the mainstream media. I understand the TP and WWL-TV are both pursuing the story. And when it breaks, we’ll have a good indicator of just how wonky we all are. What I call “juicy” I’m sure will induce others to yawn.

    But, oh the irony. I only got the phone call because I have this blog. Not being able to write about it here is very frustrating. Dargerblond’s in the same boat, and I got a private message from another local blogger in a similar situation; he says he can’t even write about not being able to write about it.

    I’m sure this happens to professional journalists all the time.

    And therapists.

    Something to do with [redacted]?

  20. Editor B Says:

    Absolutely unguessable. And I can’t confirm or deny anything, so there’s really no point in guessing. I only wished to reflect on the mental state such quandaries put us in.

    […] Update: Here’s Stacy Head on WWL [mp3, 5MB]. She called the station while ducking out from the above-mentioned meeting and talks about Garbagegate. Her comments about how the Council passed that ordinance in April jibe with what my friend at City Hall told me last week. […]
