The Dog That Didn't Bark

There was an article on the front page of the Arizona Republic concerning the political future of Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. I mention it, not because of any substance to his ambition, but because it's rare for the paper to discuss Gordon the politician, as opposed to Gordon the officeholder, on its front page.

What's strange about that paucity of front-page coverage is not just that Gordon is probably the top local elected official int he Valley, it's the fact that he's up for re-election next week for the top job in the 5th largest city in the country.
