Some blog thoughts as this Tuesday approaches. I am not quite willing to throw out the baby with the bath water. This is the time for learning, listening and assessing. Some musings and comments:
Greg L is all over the discretionary funds issue on the dark site. The fault I find with his analysis is his perpetual problem of partisanship. Many of the supervisors have questionable use of the discretionary funds, yet Letiecq chose to call out only Democrats by name. If we are going to discuss names, then let’s be fair and name all who have abused or attempted to abuse the discretionary fund system.
Meanwhile, I have to hand it to the Sheriff of Nottingham for his diligence on this matter. He did some things I was not willing to do myself.
