TDD WIth no Comments! Shocking!

Great job. Idiots managed to shut down comments. Seriously its great to see people who are actually bonafide adults acting like 7th graders with the teacher out of the room. Actually its quite disturbing, and speaks volumes of why we have problems with unity in Macon County. Catch you on the flip,

Takin it to the people

Who: Phil Hare, Lane Evans' choice for the 17th Congressional District
What: A Meet and Greet
When: April 24 at 6 p.m.
Where: The Decatur Public Library
Why: Hopefully to hear the voice of the people, and take it with him to Washington!

Oh yeah and refreshments, those are always a good thing.

Blood Transfusion

Underwood of Maroa won election by acclamation as Democratic central committee
chairman while James Gresham of Decatur was unopposed for GOP chairman.Other
Democrat officers elected by acclamation were vice chairman, Louise "Wegi"
Stewart; secretary, R.C. Smith; treasurer, Roger Walker Jr.; and
sergeants-at-arms, Shad Etchason, Annie Williams, Bobbie Mann, Mike Wakeland and
Jim Taylor.

Glad to see this. Well wehat I'm really glad to see is that Chairman Underwood is taking a look into our bylaws and looking to use them, and better yet adopt them to something closely resembling modern times. Kudos to him. Sadly, the MCR's keep plugging away, and I'll be honest I'm a little worried they might do something this next election on the county board level. If they do though, they deserve it because it seems like they are putting work into the project.

Time calls Durbin one of the 10 best Senators

And if he can't reach a compromise behind the scenes, Durbin is happy to
return to the open well of the Senate. "I really enjoy debate," he says. "The
battle of ideas is what it should be about."

This ought to bring out the crazies. Besides that, what else is out and about in the area? I think the big discussion here has been Stockwell's bid for the 17th. It seems to me to be a lot like a Steve Rauschenberger campaign, everyone speaks highly of the candidate, but they get no traction. Agree or disagree?
