Good Old Boy Network orders Status Quo for City Council

The Good Old Boy network fears change and reform.

Why else would a number of "concerned citizens" send out a mailer this week telling you who to vote for?

The letter, signed by : Madeline Liebsack, Terry & Linda Bellander, Maie Carrick, Mark Bassett, Shane Bybee, John C. Gianoli and Elaine Smith, endorses both incumbents in seats 1 and 3, and endorses Don Purintan for Bybee's seat 5.  Yes Virginia, Term Limits are a very good thing!

(Sidebar:  Isn't the fact that Mark Bassett, executive director of the Railroad Museum, writing such a letter a conflict of interest since he answers to the city?)

Handfasting - Religious Ritual or Alimony Fraud?


When you get close to a breakthrough, and your friends and family send the positive energies to make such an event happen, you know that Lucifer just hates that and has to muck around with you.

So after I thought we had an absolute victory in my quest to give Cheryl the biggest, best wedding I could, Old Beelzebub throws us a curve.

Did you know that a Wiccan Handfasting is a wedding, but isn't a wedding? To be honest, I didn't know what a Handfasting was! And I considered myself fairly knowledgeable of Wicca and the earth religions.

Peace at last.


I've know this day was coming for weeks. But when it finally came, I had no idea what to expect.

The ex-wife, the one whom for much of our eleven year marriage, was unbearable for her and for me, sent me a change of address. She sent the change of address in, of all things, a Christmas card. Ironic, since the change of address arrived on February 8, one day after I had sent the monthly Spousal Support. Even more ironic was on the return address spot of the card. Not her name, but her and her boyfriend's name, written as if they were man and wife.
