Mayor Herb Drinkwater read this Top 10 list over the phone with Dave back in May, 1987:

Top 10 Municipal Problems or Panda Names:

10. Raising revenues while preserving economic incentives
9. Maintenance of attractive convention facilities
8. Wing-Ling
7. Traffic congestion
6. Pong Pong
5. Roly Poly
4. Upgrading mass transit
3. Mookie
2. Inability to mate in front of crowds
1. Tie  Potholes ... Ping Ping
