OPINION: Nothing close to closure with Cannon’s plea

The newest details about our corrupt former mayor aren’t nearly as attention grabbing as the bad behavior Patrick Cannon was accused of when he was arrested back in March. Instead of a briefcase stuffed with $20,000, there’s an alleged payout of a couple grand in court documents unsealed Monday. Instead of paid trips to Las Vegas and a free SouthPark apartment, there are possible zoning approvals and a meeting with city transportation officials.
