Written on Privatizing Public Services Doesn't Work:

Rikki Hall's article is only the tip of the iceberg, as evidenced by the article below which exposes ALEC(American Legislative Exchange Council):

This is, or should be, a call to arms, metaphorically. ALEC is a cancer on the economy of the country, one that can be expunged best by
ousting the legislators who introduced it, then passing new legislation to remove and prevent from happening again.

Written on City Councilman Charlie Thomas Opts to Run:

I find it exciting when a run for office brings out the Swift Boaters.

I find support for Charlie Thomas in a piece authored by Ms. Betty Bean in the Halls/Fountain City Shopper. In her article, Ms. Bean quotes Third District Council member Brenda Palmer and Council member Chris Woodhill.

From Brenda Palmer, she reported, " There were so many applicants for the interim seat, I expected that one or more would step up and run. But none of those people stepped up, and I think that releases him from any pledge he made. When there's an open seat it's always good to have competition."

From Mr. Woodhull: "I feel very comfortable with Charlie deciding to run and I don't think that violates the spirit of any promise."

Further in his remarks, Mr. Woodhull added, "If you only have one candidate it incites a kind of lethargy."

I found nothing to support Number9's contention but I did find support for a vibrant exchange of ideas.

Read Ms. Bean's Article for yourself:
