What I said and what I meant to say

If Dayton had fiber for internet service, I’d have the video up from last night’s debate already- however, because our country thinks building schools, hospitals and roads in Afghanistan is more important than the critical data infrastructure for the new economy- uploading 90 minutes of compressed video will take all night tonight. Since you can’t […]

Last night I engaged in spiteful, unfounded and plain mean yellow journalism- by reporting that the Dayton Daily News editorial board was getting the axe: it looks like we won’t have to listen to the editorial board of Ellen Belcher, Martin Gottlieb and Scott Elliott anymore. via Sayonara Editorial board: Cox cuts the brain dead. […]

Not that Jamie Simpson.

in What I said and what I meant to say

I’ve been informed that Jamie Simpson, meteorologist from Channel 7, is not a candidate for Mayor. Sorry for any confusion.

What is Jane Mitakides thinking? I got a voice mail yesterday from the Warren County Democratic Party chair- stating that some of his members and Jane were upset that I recorded Jane’s presentation and my speech at the meeting and posted it on my site: Real democracy as practiced in Warren County- compare Mitakides to […]

I was at the Spike Lee talk at the Schuster Center- along with a whole lot of other people. Right at the beginning Spike talked which way this country to go- depending on our vote in the primary Mar. 4. There was a big delay before his final direction- but look what the paper quoted […]

I didn’t record my interview with Lynn Hulsey and neither did she. If I did or didn’t say it- it doesn’t matter, it’s in the paper- so it must be true. “Crybaby” is a strong term- and applying it to the hard working people in Dayton’s proud union shops is in no way how I […]

Bethany from Wright State wrote: I am doing personal research on the candidates running in the upcoming primary. Could you tell me (briefly, yet thoroughly) what your stances are on the following issues? Education: Do you support No Child Left Behind? If not, what do you suggest replace “the system”? Do you think the governor’s […]

Just saw this (I’m not on the official release list): News and Notes: Ohio Congressional Races | Ohio Daily Blog – A Community Blog On Ohio Politics And Public Affairs OH-03: Mitakides Campaign Kickoff – Jane Mitakides (D) will have her official campaign kick-off event on Thursday, February 7th, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at […]

As of today, I’m officially the underdog, since Jane Mitakides got the endorsement of the Montgomery County Democratic party last night. I’d like to know what the other 3 Democratic Parties in the district think, but, apparently, there isn’t much interest in this race from their party Chairmen. In her last outing for Congress, she […]

I can’t knock on 25,000 doors between now and March 4. It’s too bad, because I’d like to meet all the people I need to vote for me for this to continue to November. While postcards are nice, and this website is even better, sometimes, people just want to hear what a candidate has to […]
