Lunchtime Agita

Earlier, as press assembled to cover the Mayor’s announcement, there was a bit of a struggle over whether press would be allowed to speak to the Mayor’s guests.

“The more agita you give me the more difficult it will be for me to give you what you want,” said a member of the mayor’s press staff.

“Showdown at the Four Seasons,” said one reporter.

Press were invited to hear the mayor’s speech, we were told, not to mingle with guests.
