TFP Column: Undecided And Soundbite Free

In a move that might eventually bring down the reign of Editor in Chief Michael Miller, I have been added to the list of regular columnists for the Toledo Free Press. While certainly concerned over impact that such a decision may present over the ultimate fate of someone who is truly a nice guy and an exceptional writer, I am selfish enough to never the less use such an opportunity to expand the audience for my particular brand of nonsense.

My offering for this week's edition has to do with the soundbites that most of us are going to have to use to make important voting decisions next week. I hope that you find it a worthwhile read.

(It would be a serious mistake to limit yourself to my humble offering while on this website by the way, especially if you are interested in what's going on in the election in general and the issues involving Toledo in particular.)

Tim,

I too am facing the very same dilemma after being constantly with sound bites.

Despite the sound bite bombardment, I fell back on the history of the candidates; what they have said and done BEFORE deciding to seek the highest office in the land and the role as our next commander in chief.

Once shaking off the most recent onslaught of media bits, blurbs and bytes, the proper choice became clear to me.

I now know who is the lesser weasel and who will get my vote.

Thanks for helping me to realize that the recent chatter is worthless compared to their histories ;-)

HT,

I would be ashamed to take credit for pointing out the obvious ... OK, maybe not.

Thanks

OMG, a regular column! What has become of the Free Press. I have no idea what this world is coming to.

Sound off, I say! Bite it, I say!
Oh.... Is that a sound bite?

Hup one. two, three, four. Hup five, six, seven, eight.

Roland,

Be careful on your return to Toledo, as dogs and cats are now living together. :-)
