Could you please explain to me how Gene Locke was of greater merit or qualification than Mayor Elect Parker?
I can’t explain anything except anytime time I read a headline that says something along the lines, “SO and SO is the first (insert race, gender, hair color, etc here) to (insert achievement here). I lose interest. Now, if the headline reads, “so and so was the first, human or student or athlete or even American...” Then I am interested. Otherwise, whatever...I am sure their “group” whatever that group is, will be very proud.
