He Must Be Photogenic

It’s the only plausible excuse. Mayor Ford has been photographed more times than all other Toronto mayors combined. Or so it would seem.
Another photo surfaced on Twitter (of course) of Mayor Ford reading while driving.
While nobody would condone the activity, it does seem that Mayor Ford is so divisive that he inspires the Eastman in all of us. Or if we can’t manage a snapshot, we’re more than willing to run to the press with our individual ‘scoops’.
Running down some of the public’s grievances of the Mayor:
- Using a cell phone while driving
- Flipping the bird after being accused of the previous point
- Exiting a fast food outlet while on a much publicized diet
- Driving past open streetcar doors
And you get the idea. Odd that not one of these things seems to relate to the job he was elected to do. Shouldn’t the public be more concerned with his in office performance? Yes there are certain sacrifices that come with public office, but that shouldn’t shift the focus away from that office. With Mayor Ford, the focus appears to be on everything but.
