M.H. Millard, in his May 12 commentary ("Unions, city must find a responsible balance") begins with a head fake espousing labor harmony to get your heads nodding in agreement, then does a nifty behind-the-back crossover dribble and starts to blame the "greedy" employees for all the problems he perceives in our city.
After that bit of ball-handling, when he's got you singing anti-union hosannas, he turns and drives right to the basket, telling us that our Westside is basically a crumbling morass of putrefaction and decay and Costa Mesa will never reach its potential until that problem is "fixed."
It's curious that Millard continues to harp on the plight of the Westside of Costa Mesa, as he's done for more than a decade, even though he lives just about as far from that part of town as you can be and still remain within the borders. Nothing that does or does not happen on the Westside will affect his neighborhood at all.
