"Totally screwed up"

Mayor Daley to admit everything, nothing about the parking meters:

"I'll be the first to admit that we totally screwed up the way it was implemented. I want us to do better — and we will"

[snip]

"After falling on his sword in the bluntest of terms, the mayor will defend the deal as 'financially responsible' and argue that, without it, 'we'd be forced to consider raising new revenues and cutting services this year.'"

In other words, it's simultaneously news and not news at all.
