I am - I mean, a friend of mine is - a newly elected public official. As part of the celebration marking the start of his term, he is whistle-stopping through a couple of cities this Saturday en route to Washington. Unfortunately, in one of those cities, the mayor recently was indicted on criminal charges. Pity my poor pal, who already has worn out all his pick and roll moves avoiding a similarly sullied governor from his home state. Should I - I mean, he - just stay on the train to keep his distance from someone who now seems to be known, at least in the headlines, as "Mayor Indicted?"
