Paineite (re: "My 2 Cents: Don't Run, Mike"): The fly in your oinment, DFO, is that if everyone took that view and just stepped away when the stench became overwhelming (as indeed it is), then nothing would get done and the shire would be overrun by Shelob (don't have to tell you who I'm thinking of) and the orcses. No ... I'd rather see Mike stand and fight ... come what may. And btw, I "get" the "oh the humanity" aspect of your take on it ... but Mike CAN win this and his opposition will be just as strong for a state seat. And btw, he can and has accomplished more here than he ever would in that legislature chock full of nincompoops.
Question: Could Councilman Mike Kennedy win re-election to a third term -- with all the forces of the Reagan Republicans, OpenCDA.com, RecallCDA and CAVErs aligned against him?
