Minneapolis mayor’s gift to newspaper columnist: humor

There was some good humor — at least we think it was humor — from Minneapolis City Hall this morning.

In a fairly mean Star Tribune column yesterday, columnist Jon Tevlin, who hasn’ figured out how to unfollow anyone on Twitter yet, took Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges to task. He doesn’t like her tweets. so he wrote a column with Christmas wishes.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges: A copy of the collected quotes of Deepak Chopra, so she can keep up with her steady stream of inane platitudes on Twitter.

This Chopra gem seems applicable: “There are very few good examples of effective, nurturing leadership that unlocks people’s potential or even enthusiasm.”

Or this one: “Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.”

I’m pretty sure she will be able to work one of those into the Equity Mission Statement.

Over to you, Mayor Hodges…

Well played, Mayor.
