Opie isnt the only one who likes Mayor Ed. Even though he has never came right out and said that, he does defend the guy quite often and hes not alone either. 90% of the Mayor Ed comments in here are not very positive or neutral at best, but when it comes time to try to remove him from office, he wins and wins easily every damn time. They can change mayors every six weeks and IMO Granite City is still going to be Slightly Below AverageVille USA which is ok. Granite City will never ever ever be Edwardsville, it just wont, but it will never be State Park either. Thats just going to have to be good enough.
