Have you ever noticed...
...that people who say "I'm one of the best [at whatever]!" really generally aren't?
"I'm a good police chief -- one of the best in the country," says Metropolitan Police Chief Charles Ramsey.
It seems to me that a lot of people disagree.
I say: flip a coin and call it in the air. You have a better chance of getting away with murder in D.C. than you do of calling the coin flip correctly. When Ramsey began his term five years ago, the homicide case closure (i.e. solved) rate was 70 percent; during his term it has dropped as low as 43 percent. Good police chiefs don't let that happen.
