City Council chairman Myron Lowery, who would be notified about a potential mayoral resignation, said a few minutes ago that he did not know about the press conference and that he hasn’t talked with Herenton today.

BREATHE, everyone, BREATHE, will ya?
Everyone seems to be losing their damn minds over the fact that The Mayor has called a presser for 11:30 A.M. to make a "Special Announcement". They're all saying, "HE'S GOING TO RESIGN! HE'S GOING TO RESIGN, TRA-LA, TRA-LA!".
Mayor, please. The CA article above notes THIS:
All righty then. He "resigned" once before, remember? Whaddaya bet he's announcing his campaign team and is jerking the chain of the media (and his constituency) yet again. Until you SEE him give the actual, properly-worded letter of resignation to Myron Lowery, I'm not buying it, and neither should you.
No matter how much you're hoping for it.
UPDATE: just had to put out this snarky, delightful tweet from @jensized:
Herenton to announce at 11:30 the Grizzlies are drafting Tyler Hansbrough in an effort to racially unite the city.
UPDATE: The CA says the Mayor has promised Myron a letter of resignation, but given NO EFFECTIVE DATE. I smell BULLSHIT, people!!!!!
UPDATE: He DID give a date, July 10. All righty then.
