T he rampant ugliness and poorly considered moves in the City Council Redistricting process just don’t stop. The latest shenanigans flow directly from Council President Herb Wesson, who in the past few months has demonstrated a propensity for punishing enemies and rewarding friends simply because he can. His latest move is additional evidence that he cares much more about political power than he does the good of constituents. Last week Wesson revealed his plan to slam shut the conversation about redistricting by March 16. This speeds up a process that previously was not expected to culminate until June 30. For the good of the city, Wesson needs to slow down and back off this artificial deadline. Changing the boundaries of the 15 council districts is too important to ram through, and the stakes ...

This Follies is a restaging of last year’s Kennedy Center production, with most of the original cast, including Tony winner Victoria Clark.
