Ladies and Gentlemen! In this corner, weighing in at 80,000 pounds gross weight, the reigning champion of the Buffalo News editorial page, representing one of the millions of semi trucks that will be inspected over time at the proposed US truck plaza as a result of the inflexible opinion of current Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and his boss, President George W. Bush—who suffered a loss in the ring from US Supreme Court Judges just yesterday, when they ruled against the indefinite detainment of Guantanamo Bay prisoners held without charges and without hope of fair trial—the General Manager of the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority…the pugilist for public domain…the crusher of communities…the paver of parks…the master of myopia…the potentate of public works projects: Ro-onnnnn RIEN-ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
And in this corner, weighing in at a combined weight of 187 pounds, four young schoolgirls playing jump-rope wearing gas masks, similar in age to the children at D’Youville Porter Campus School #3…represented by former NYS Senator and sometimes whacky issue-driver A-aaaaaaaaaaalllllllllll Co-PPOLAAAA!
