"Every once in a great while, there is salvation in surrender. I have never been one to linger and I don't intend to start now" — the words of Arizona governor Fife Symington, who will resign from office tomorrow following his fraud conviction. He faces up to 165 years in prison and $6.25 million in fines.
Arizona may be momentarily without a governor, but residents of Miami could wake up tomorrow to find themselves without a city. Citizens are voting on whether to abolish the corruption-plagued metropolitan government and become absorbed in the surrounding county.
