I haven’t really followed the Birmingham mayoral election much, but I was disheartened to see that Larry Langford had won. His “Let’s Do Something!” slogan seemed random, as if it had been plucked from genericpoliticalslogans.com and, of course, I hold to Thoreau’s admonition “that government is best which governs least.” Kincaid’s terms as mayor were at least marked by restraint, a word I’m afraid Langford doesn’t know the meaning of.
