My Goodness! Should Today's Weakly be Considered An In-Kind Campaign Donation?

There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
- Winston Churchill

Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity.
But then, we elected them. - Lily Tomlin
Some folks are really testing the limits on what passes for impartiality and fairness when it comes to the Mayoral race!

Both the content and timing of the collection of strongly biased political opinion in today's Weakly might well qualify as expensive contributions to the McShane Campaign!

Has this 'in-kind' donation been declared?

At what price would publishing this issue be valued?

Tell us again, who is paying for this issue? The owners?

Will our erstwhile WWU political science professor now be able to admit there is more to his PDC inquiries than routine curiosity?

Will the Weakly's editor believe his 'confessions' are any big surprise to anyone?

Is this another sign that those so entrenched in power will not give it up easily?

Will this latest excess serve to galvanize people who want a clear change from this kind of political gamesmanship, to actually vote for that change?

I certainly hope so!

Just imagine what a Mayor with this divisive a mentality would do in office.

All this and Halloween's not even here yet!

But, its coming next week.

Count on it, but vote first.
Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage. - H. L. Mencken

Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others.
