Just yesterday, one of our commenters predicted — jokingly, or so I thought — that former state Rep. "Able" Mable Thomas would endorse Councilwoman Mary Norwood for mayor.

Well, it's happening. I just got an e-mail alert from the Norwood campaign about an endorsement photo-op scheduled for Friday.

How weird is this? Anyone who's been around Atlanta any length of time knows "Able" Mable — herself a former Council member who most recently ran against U.S. Rep. John Lewis — to be a career politician and lip-service populist who never gives away what she can sell.

So, the question is, what did Norwood offer her in return? Just askin'.
