Quote of the Day

By Erica C. Barnett February 19, 2010

Mayor Mike McGinn, asked this morning about his sometimes-prickly relationship with the City Council:

"I've always been a pickup basketball player, and every time I moved to a new town, I would go and find the court where people played. And as the new guy in town, when you drive to the hoop on a new court, you get a lot of hard elbows from people who've been playing there for a while, and you have to throw some hard elbows back. And eventually you get back to just playing good basketball."
