Still-to-be-determined: whether Mayor Dean is more Admiral Nelson than Captain Ahab chasing the great white whale.
I responded thusly 2 months ago to Karl Dean's single-minded will-to-build:
What was once bureaucratic mismanagement will likely become money-grubbing influence pulling in half of Metro Council, consolidating Mayor Dean's control over that slavish body.
And any discussion of ethics in this mess will be ground down by an Ahabic drive to land a large white whale called the Music City Center. Call me Ishmael, but I don't entirely agree with some implicated in this fiasco that the Courthouse system works.
