I Told Him So

Over two years ago (on a December evening in 2004 to be exact), Tulsa mayor Bill LaFortune sat in my city council office and I offered him the follwing prediction.

"If you don't start making decisions based on Republican principles, rather than on what keeps the Tulsa World off of your back, you're going to be facing a tough Democrat opponent...probably Kathy Taylor...and the World is going to endorser her anyway."

I had almost forgotten this prognostication until I was reminded of it last Friday. Who reminded me? Why Bill LaFortune did.

Ultimately, we will not be judged by the mistakes we make, but from the lessons learned as a result of our mistakes.

Schools in session.
