It’s back… Dayton Politics is alive… again.

I’m not sure what’s going on- but www.DaytonPolitics.com is back, and it either stole, or is the same people as www.daytonwatchdog.com (same post- both sites)- note: daytonwatchdog now seems to be down…
Last we heard before it went down- it was up for offers for a takeover. I offered to host it- and to help with setting WordPress to work properly- I guess I was ignored. But, they must like my site- they are using the same K2 Theme I use-

I’m going to have to change my header or something now… damn.

    Your link in your blogroll to DP.Com is incorrect. “Broken” link is what the cool kids call it. Just ditch the /blog part and it should work fine.

    Thanks Bryan- they changed their config location… had it right in the post.

    Not to worry, no posts and probably no readers, just a lot of reprints. So what?

    and anyway, there’s no snarky stuff about whats really going locally “under the hood”. How about a certain local labor leader conections getting his minions hired for fat city jobs where supervisors supervise supervisors or getting his way on who geot Dan Foleys job…or issues about why it is that NON VETERANS have been give choice employment on the Veteran’s Service Commission, a position supposedly requiring a DD 214 [same local labor “leader”]? Or why are we going to go ahead and tear down Roosevelt HS after much community oppostion? Or what it means for Joey Williams to be head of Chase Bank locally and also on City Commission? Or why it is that Mike Turner seems to be politically invulnerable and why aren’t our local Democratic “leaders” faulting him more voisciferously for his failure to “represent” the single largest constituent base in his district? And what about the Prostitution problems on N Main and S Dixie? If you want readers…stir some pepper into the pot…

    Gary- thank you for sharing- and signing your name-
    but- maybe your comments belong on the Dayton Politics site-
    not here.

    Hunh? What is the point of your blog then…? You write about Dayton politics and what I wrote was exclusively about Dayton politics…and besides, I really don’t think anyone reads [or ever did, which is why it went dormant] “Dayton Politics”.

    “If we want a revolution, it needs to be by taking the process onto the Internet- where the playing field can be leveled.”

    You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs,and the same is true about “revolution”; Leveling the playing field is going to require breaking more than a few “eggs”. While I appreciate the overall thoughtfulness of your posts I am also prepared to make omelets. You are correct, the Revolution WILL NOT BE TELEVISED, which is why you have to raise trhe bar to a height where people are paying attention.

    Gary-
    I think more people read Dayton Politics than read this site. All the people who you want to vote a resolution against the war read Dayton Politics- good place to post your request for a resolution against the war.
    My blog isn’t about politics- it’s about change, ideas, vision and leadership- all things that are missing from our local political scene.

    Oh come on Esrati, your blog is constantly critiquing the political process in Dayton, as well as making suggestions of how to change things. Sure, you can make the argument that your blog is not ‘politics as usual,’ but to claim that it is apolitical, is, on the face of it, unconvincing.

    OK- It’s political, but not of the type that Dayton Politics is-
    for one- it’s not anonymous. Having a voice is one thing- but, to have a voice with power- is another. I have the former- not the latter.
    You don’t see a lot of politicians arguing on here- like some of the arguments on DP.

    There is actually more here than politics, which is one of the reasons I read this site. I am fairly apathetic about politics and don’t live in Dayton city anyway, but this blog comments on cultural issues and general urban affairs/policy things, which are of interest.
