The Bee says what we already know: developers always get whatever they want
As the main voice of the Downtown Sacramento Power Elite, it is rare when the Sacramento Bee prints an article that pulls back the curtain and reveals how things really get done. Yet, on occasion, the Bee's editors make mistakes and let that kind of actual journalism get past them. Once such instance was in last Saturday's Bee, when the editors let it slip that the Board of Supervisors is, shall we say, "guided" by the "wisdom of developers" -- developers who coincidentally fund the Supervisors' election coffers. "Big deal," you say, "we all know that". Yes, but how often do we get to read it in print? Hey, come on, the editors are mortal humans like the rest of us. We all make mistakes. Let's be nice and forgive them.
