Ironically, while the deal was recommended to the Metro Board by Metro staff, it was Yaroslavsky himself who took the lead in killing the mediated settlement, which had been brokered by a retired superior court judge. Being a "king" evidently has its privileges.

My first tongue was Russian. In the U.S., they did the same thing --continued the Russian traditions they had grown up with.
