Pay Nat Ford His Money and Get Him Out of Here

When it comes to Nat Ford, always we grumble. We grumbled about how much money he was paid to work. Now we're grumbling about how much he'll be paid to stop working and get the hell out of town.

The lead rabble-rouser decrying Ford's $384,000 walkin' money is state Sen. Leland Yee. Aspiring panderers ought to line up and watch Yee's histrionics the way young ballplayers gawped at Barry Bonds in the batting cage. Way back when, Supervisor Harvey Milk went so far in the name of cheap populism as to intentionally tread in dog shit. Yee would have picked up the shit, brandished it before the cameras, and said, “Look what I almost stepped in.”
