Two Wrongs

Marion Barry has lost his singular distinction as the only mayor publically caught smoking crack cocaine. Thanks to video evidence now in the possession of police officials, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has figuratively been busted with pipe in hand. Both have well-earned reputations for being able to spin a good sound bite, but Barry says their situations are not the same. You be the judge. – Joyce Jones
