Bill Torpy: Mayor dumps department heads, won't say why

When the airport's manager and watershed commissioner get cut loose on the same afternoon, something's up.

There is, Mayor Kasim Reed admitted to a room full of reporters. But he’s not going to say what.

Let's just talk about the future, the mayor said in an hour-long press conference that veered from philosophy to metrics to slights he has felt through the years. In short, it was Vintage Kasim.

(In a mayoral tweet, meanwhile, Reed dismissed -- or just dissed -- the latest Bill Torpy column as "Typical Torpy." Not hard to read Reed on that one. Take a read on Torpy's take.)
