Not exactly news that Jorge Artalejo is running for something.
But nonetheless, it does tickle Max's fancy that Artalejo is running for Mayor.
Because Artalejo being Mayor might be a good thing.
Now that may come off as a shock to you, but I can guarantee that it is even more shocking for Artalejo.
Artalejo won't admit this, but he does NOT want to win. That's because winning poses a problem for him.
Artalejo, like some others in this town, complains just about everything. But as Mayor, Artalejo will change his tune. It will be a "shoe on the other foot" moment. Everyone will start to complain to him or about him, and he will call Joyce Wilson and plead, "SAVE ME FROM THE CRAZIES!!!" At which point, Joyce Wilson goes crazy herself, and quits, but then gets immediately hired by a city like San Jose (David K thinks Virginia, but sorry a NoVA summer sucks).
After Joyce is gone, Artalejo will have a "heavy is the crown" moment. He will either quit and appreciate what it is to be a public servant, or he might actually shape up to be the greatest mayor in the history of El Paso. He will turn this dusty town in a bustling global metropolis. You never know.
But I know it is too much to ask that Artalejo become Mayor to test "Max's hypothesis"
So if not Mayor of El Paso, can we at least make sure Artalejo gets more votes than Hector H. Lopez?
"Max, this post is weird and makes no sense."
I know, but I just felt like doing a post about Jorge because he does remind me of Animal. And I had to put something together.
