You are not. You will get caught in the same decline that is overtaking Cleveland now."

Kevin Kelley, Ken Johnson, Anthony Brancatelli, Joe Cimperman, Frank Jackson ....Their behavior as elected officials all LOOKS bad.  It doesn't help to have two journalists arguing with each other about presenting the news.   There is a dust up on FB between Eric Brewer and Sam Allard:

Now that the entire country has survived weeks of painful, dredged up memories from two former high school students - one who will now decide the fate of Supreme Court cases - do we need to do a complete accounting for all of the sitting public office holders and legislators?  Afterall, it's just the right thing.

What ever happened to Kathryn Kazol?? You remember KATHRYN don't you? For over 20 years she was the world famous Golden Girl of our local "news" organizations who religiously adhere to leftist talking points. Never once did any local "news" operation question EDEN's fraudulent property tax exempt status.

Trump's tweets are angry and demented.   Does he actually have control of a nuclear "button"? I hope not...
