Doesn't Like Kirk Watson

RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 5, 2003

Dear Chronicle,
    Former Mayor Kirk Watson, Mr. High Profile figure, has the credibility of a lawyer. You'd think, after all his failed Smart Growth corporate development incentive schemes and subsequent sky-rocketing property taxes, people would realize that he barely qualifies to manage a Burger King. I have no idea what kind of high this profile figure is on.
    At least his Chamber of Commerce appointment (the Lone Star State's equivalent of knighthood) affords a situation where damage potential is minimal. I pray that it is so.
