HIS POSITION ON THE FOLLOWING.......... 27.Jun.2003 21:18

Concerned he will be mayor

I wish to know his position on housing 5 criminally insane men, all with a violent crime history, in a grouphome in a residential neighborhood.......400 ft from a grade school and allowing them 90 minutes of UNSUPERVISED walks pass the school each day.

Mayor? Really??? 28.Jun.2003 08:03

He'd have my vote

All I know is, he'd get my vote. I don't generally vote, certainly not for dems or reps. But I would make an exception in this case. He's taken some controversial stands on principal, and I like him. Also, it would mean the end of the nasty vera. I know Earl wouldn't put up with that dumbass Kroeker. He'd be out before the vote was even counted.

Plus, he flipped me off once. No kidding. I was driving down second, and misjudged traffic in my frenzy to get home, and totally cut this guy off. I don't know what I was thinking. He came pulling up beside me at the next light, and I braced myself for a well deserved up-braiding. I look over all apologetic, and there's Earl, flipping me off! Whoa! Anyway, he seemed sheepish when he realized I was apologizing.
