Opinions,discussions and common ground on the Democracy of the United States and Macon County "Democracy is the cause of Humanity."--John L. O'Sullivan

Wednesday, June 15, 2005


While some likely welcome the silence into which this blog has lapsed through most of May and well into June, there may be a few folks who wonder what has happened. There has been general slowdown in "blogging" on the Decatur front, even with the emergence of "Blog Decatur." The big topic has been the Department of Justice inquiry at DMH, a subject covered by a staggering amount of posts on Matt Jackson's blog site (http://jacksonfile.blogspot.com/). Like many of you, I've been distracted by other activities. The Rock Springs Ground Squirrels Vintage Base Ball Club seems to improve its won-loss record in inverse proportion to the amount of playing time I record for it. However, I still find myself doing a lot with and for the club. Hopefully, in the near future I can finally get around to the second installment in Standing On Their Shoulders, an irregular series on Macon County Democratic leaders from the past, as well as the long-promised, yet-to-be-delivered Why We Are Democrats series. If you are interested in these topics, please check back from time to time. Don't forget, too, to check out The Decatur Democrat and the blogs of Ryan Marucco, Bryan Smith and Matt Jackson for interesting ideas and commentary.
Best Regards,
