"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

If I have to be the one, I can't think of anyone better

Had my hair cut to-day. Can't stand it when it grows to a certain length. I told the hairdresser about the nice comments in the blog and made a bright spot in her day. It' s all about the cut.

I have posted a couple of nasties on the issue of expensive defence of defendants. I did not bring up the subject.

Nasty remarks seldom get time or space on blog. But occasionally they serve to illustrate the extent of ill will in the community against freedom of expression.

Few risk being in the middle of an ugly situation.

So anonymity is acceptable. Severe criticism of Councillors is not published. Judgement is exercised.

But the blog is open to thoroughly spiteful stuff against myself. People who function at that level are not having a lot of fun or satisfaction.

But I do know our rights.

They're worth defending.

If it falls to me, it falls to me.

Hey, your hair is always the best at the table. I'm not going to say most interesting as we have had some fun there.

"Nasty remarks seldom get time or space on blog. But occasionally they serve to illustrate the extent of ill will in the community against freedom of expression."

Please re-read these two sentences. If certain remarks "seldom get time or space on blog," what does that say about your allowance of "freedom of expression"?

There you go contradicting yourself again...

Poor 20:37. Still upset about being unable to pontificate on Mr Watt's Blog.

Rather than silly name-calling, 23:41, debate the point that was raised.

Speaking of coiffures and indeed the previous cut of our mayoral challenger, where the heck is he? I would like to see him out challenging our mayor.

What point? No contradiction was made. How many times does Evelyn have to explain the monitoring of HER blog. What part of HER blog don't people get.

Learning how to line-dance ?
I wonder if the cowboy hats can be rented ?

One new candidate got the hat just right - a light touch & a big smile.

I certainly hope that the critism of a candidate is limited to the style of his or her hair.

If so, it shows the childish nature of those that post here. They do not have any real comments about the substance, so they have to resort to looks, hair, clothing, etc.

Ease up there 8:30...What you're mostly reading are lighthearted and fun pokes at a few individuals. It's too bad that grown ups like yourself can't have a little fun now and again.
