The most telling thing about the recent Times survey conducted among local "leaders" regarding Measure R was just how "unleaderlike" they turned out to be, and how in fact that very trait got us into this bankruptcy mess in the first place.

Monday was an ordinary day at the local social service outfit Save Our Selves. Children played while their parents waited for bags of groceries. Volunteers passed out checks for lodging, medical care and other needs. But behind the scenes, inside the onetime light industrial building that now houses the agency, there was a changing of the guard.
