Poor Bobby O's Not Yet Buried...

...but it's back to business as usual in Pittsburgh.

With Pittsburgh City Council President Luke Ravenstahl assuming the Mayor's duties upon the untimely death of Bob O'Connor, Pittsburgh City Council met today and elected Doug Shields as its new president. The vote was 7-1, with only Councilman Jim Motznik, who has sought the position for a year, voting no.

The vote brought an angry response from Mr. Motznik, who said he was "embarrassed" to be on council.

The solution to this is obvious. The 7 Councilors who voted for Mr. Shields can ride the Conferencebike, with Mr. Shields driving. Mr. Motznik can sit and pout in his embarrassment. Click on the picture for a movie of how smoothly Council can operate without Mr. Motznik.
