This makes it sound like a handful of firefighters and a couple of bus drivers were the only opponents of the Mayor's budget last night. There was a long line of opponents who spoke for a long time. There was even a fair amount of anger and tears that the press usually pounces and preys upon. Most of the opponents were of the unwashed masses, so I can see how the City Paper would render them invisible especially when the journalists want to be able to maintain openings to the administration for news and when the Mayor desires a free ride on his first budget. I guess they understand on which side their bread is buttered.
