When I interviewed Sam Adams back in 2005, it was like an aerobic workout. He was midway through a campaign stunt to work at 100 businesses in 100 days, and ideas and energy were spilling out of him. I think I filled an entire notebook in a single evening. At one point we paused in our conversation to watch him deliver his latest sound bite on the television news. It was obvious to me that he was going to win his city council race and move on to bigger things, and he has.
But it’s over. The Attorney General’s office conducted a thorough investigation and found no evidence of criminal behavior. A band of activists attempted to gather enough signatures to put a recall measure on the ballot — and they failed.
