San Diego CityBeat reports that Gerry Braun, Strong Mayor's manager of special projects, was fortunate enough to attend San Diego CityBeat's 10th Anniversary Party a while back. While he was there, he read a congratulatory declaration of August 24, 2012 as "CityBeat Day," a declaration signed by no less a personage than Strong Mayor himself. Said declaration opened, shockingly enough, with a jab at this very publication before going to praise San Diego CityBeat:

None

Heady stuff! Alas, the laudatory tone of the proclamation was tempered somewhat by Strong Mayor's relentless honesty:

None

Still, it's always an honor for an alt-weekly to be honored by the political establishment. Congrats, San Diego CityBeat!

Nice take-off of CityBeat's having proudly published its birthday greeting from City Hall.

What good fellowship! What wit! What a sign of having totally sold out! And they even reprint the Mayor's boy Gerry Braun dinging the Reader?

Somebody should get CB editor David Rolland away from the mirror so he can face the reality of his little journal, of his profession, of the kind of city he lives in.
