Fordian Slip - To Err is Human

Ford is behind the wheel and hammered.  One constituent he calls that night recalls Ford slurring his words.

Did this stand out for anyone else?

Ford, wasted, still doing what he thinks it is his job to do?

I have no respect for Ford - he's a bully, a thug, a racist, a homophobe and not, I think it's fair to say, much of a good family man.

At the same time, I honestly think he's trying to do what he thinks is right.  Part of him recognizes he's in way over his head, but he was raised to fight, never to back down.

The self-regulation issues, the inability to attune to details and the father complex speak to issues that could have and should have been addressed.  Who knows what the Mayor may have turned out like, given proper intervention in earlier years.

Like him or not, there's a lot to be learned from Rob Ford.
