TOPIC: Mayoral timbre
DEBATE: Mocking Strib coldumnist NonMonkey is a popular MOB sport. However there are only a very precious few who truly excel at it. As mayor, you are not required to fisk NonMonkey, or even if you do, to be very good at it. But just as a Minnesota Governor who deeply despises fishing must still suffer through the annual Fishing Opener photo op, so must the MOB Mayor demonstrate at least a certain respect and capacity for the art form that is a NonMonkey Fisk.
Today's debate is an essay question.
Select a small excerpt (2 to 3 grafs max) from this NonMonkey drooling from last week, and give it a vigorous fisking.
