I think the better question, is there a city government that isn't overbearing?
All the same, one would be hard pressed to argue against New York or San Francisco.

Or Chicago (if you are talking mayors). They illegally bulldozed their own airport over night.

But San Francisco's government seems to get into everybody's business. The "No plastic grocery bags" law being one of the latest examples.

mine ... I want my foie gras back! (not that I've ever tasted it).

I do agree we've got a bit of a mini dictator on our hands, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't vote for the guy the last three times he ran.

I think though that a lot of large cities have governments like that, I know for a fact that nyc had guiliani and now bloomberg, and both of them are a bit much and well, Boston, heh, let's not even talk about that.
