In (Attenuated) Praise Of Darlene Harris

City Council President Darlene Harris wants the City of Pittsburgh to succeed and wants to do the right thing.

Darlene Harris does not appear to be corrupt. She has not (yet, at least) succumbed to the private-box-private-jet-private-lawmaking temptations associated with big-money interests' courting of elected decision-makers.

An NBA scout would write, then underline, "low ceiling" at the top of her chart. "Good work ethic" and "instinctive player" would follow.

If Darlene Harris relies on good people, ensures she has good information and good advice, and can assemble a six-vote coalition, she could be a welcome chaperone for progress in the City of Pittsburgh.
