Well, surprise, surprise, surprise, City layoffs substantially reduced

Color us shocked.

As WCPO.Com reports here, after two "Pink Slip" press conferences, after telling the populace that the police and fire departments were going to be decimated without the Parking Plot, after blaming COAST, Smitherman and everyone else in sight for their fiscal ineptitude, today the City Manager announced that planned layoffs in the Police Department have been reduced from 149 to 66 and planned layoffs in the Fire Department from 118 to 71.  These are more than rounding errors.

So, were the Mayor and Manager lying to us all along?  Did something change at the last minute?  

All we can say, like Gomer Pyle (God bless his heart!), is "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"
