Happy New Year


To all my fellow Wood County Democrats, I wish you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2006.

Actually it's 11 pm our time but I just watched the East Coast celebrations on TV. Okay, admit it. How many of you celebrate at 11 o'clock and fall asleep before midnight our time?

I was going to post a fairly long post concerning some of the topics that Dave discussed on Ryan Lindsay's Insight show on Friday but decided to put if off until a little while. I will just use this space to congratulate Dave on a good job on the show.

As the deadline for filing papers for local offices approaches, I have heard some encouraging news about Democrats filing for office. I'll write more about this later.

Good luck to all in the New safe if you're out tonight.

Christmas for Democrats

Hi everybody.

Best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season to everybody in Wood County.

Those of you who are into the "blogosphere", are aware that there is a fascination in Democratic circles with the work of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald who is conducting the investigation into the outing of former CIA Agent and wife of Ambassador Joseph Wilson by Robert Novak. A lot of joking is going around about having a "Merry Fitzmas", that is getting indictments of top Republicans given to us for Christmas presents. In honor of that, Symbolman of Take Back the media, has given us our own Fitzmas Tree to decorate. It's a lot of fun to play around with.

Here's a graphic to give you a hint of what's in store:

Last Chance Democracy Cafe

If you haven't heard of this series of articles, you're really missing something.

The Last Chance Democracy Cafe is a series of articles by Stephen C. Day writing for It is set in a Cafe owned by a retired lawyer and features conversations among him and an eclectic group of regulars at the Cafe. More than any other site, I have found Day and his mythical group of liberals to more clearly give voice to ideals of the Democratic/Progressive movement than any other site I have visited.

Here's a link to the archives.

Read it at your leisure. There are lots of episodes. I'm pretty sure that, like me, you'll become a devoted fan of Stephen C. Day and eagerly await each new episode.
