Former mayor should not re-enter politics

March 30, 2013

Former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon should not re-enter the political world. If not for a particularly egregious lapse of common sense (thieving gift cards intended for less fortunate people), people would very likely remember her in a more positive light.

She could have murdered another, and I believe I would not see her in a lesser light. If memory serves me correctly, Ms. Dixon pilfered the gift cards around the Christmas and Kwanzaa season. For me to think that she literally and figuratively stole Christmas or Kwanzaa from a child makes me nauseated. That particular child may have received nothing that holiday. Repeat, nothing.

Don't do it, Ms. Dixon. Something, anything other than politics. I understand Target is looking to hire greeters.
