My wife is more powerful than the mayor of Kansas City.
Today, at a meeting in the mayor's office we were working out the protocol for how to deal with press inquiries at night and on weekends, I sheepishly said, "Um, but Allie said she doesn't want me bringing my Blackberry along on dates."
To which Hizzoner leaned forward and declared, "Well, anything Allie says trumps me!"
And he was serious.
Toward the end of the day he called me into his office said, in no uncertain terms, my little family comes first.
Not a bad boss.
