A couple of steps forward into the blogosphere

Presidential candidates other than Howard Dean are getting on the blogging bandwagon. John Edwards has had a weblog for a few weeks and has made infrequent and mostly sterile entries before now.   Most of the interesting posts on his blog have been by his wife Elizabeth, the balance of the posts have been by staffers. This past [...]

Now that it’s over….

The City Council got it’s first chance to air their level of commitment to the future of War Memorial Stadium last Wednesday night. The Rhino Times reports a little back-peddling and some re-affirmatons of the pre-referendum levels of support on part of some Council members. To get War Memorial the attention it deserves will take [...]

True and abiding love

Tonight after returning from the City Council meeting my brother called from Elizabethtown, Ky where our Dad has just undergone some major (4 hr) surgery.  Keith was explaining to me what all Dad had gone through.  In the background I could hear Mom dictating to Keith what Dad’s conditions and complications were.  I told my brother [...]

WHO IS IN CONTROL HERE?

Read this and explain to me why we don’t need some new people in charge. If this type of autocratic activity by Coliseum Director Matt Brown is truly found to, “…mirror problems found in a 1984 audit of the coliseum that eventually led to the resignation of then-coliseum director Jim Oshust“, as N&R reporter Matt [...]

Letter from Home

I received a note and an unsolicited campaign contribution from my Mom yesterday.  My parents live in Hodgenville, Kentucky.  The letter reads: David,  I usually don’t give to politicians, but will make and exception since you belong to me.  Hope this helps out some.  Love you & good luck, Mom P.S. Will still claim you as [...]

The Aggie Forum

I read Scott Yost’s Rhino Times account of the LWV Forum again last night.  I laughed so hard that the kids kept coming in and asking me to read them the parts that I found so funny.  When I read it to them, they didn’t get it.  I did… It is the best thing that Yost has [...]

The Aggie Forum

Last night’s student government forum at NC A&T was more fun than candidates are supposed to have.  As a contrast to the bland LWV forum a few days ago, the Aggies created an atmosphere of contentiousness and the students demonstrated sincere curiousity about who the candidtes are and why they were there. Although I have [...]

Rhino Stuff

The Rhino Times airs some dirty laundry within the pro-referendum factions in today’s edition (not linked until Monday).  The headline is “Naysayers Alive and Kicking Each Other” and  refers to my rift with the Petitoner’s Committee that began with this weblog entry.  I later explained my reaction to their decision to continue the legal battle [...]

Why does it have to come down to name calling?

I have been raising the question lately about why it seems that Greensboro has more than it’s fair share of dissention when it comes to major proposals such as FedEx, new stadiums, and the like. I am pretty sure that our water is laced only with chlorine and flouride so that is not the culprit.  [...]

Speechless

I suppose if the Bush Administration just says things are OK with the textile industry, then they are.  I need to get the Commerce Dept. to comment favorably on my at-large race so I can just sit back and win soley because of their favorable evaluation of my situation. The N&R reports less than enthusiastic responses to Bush’s [...]
