State Reps not running again for re-election and with some having been eliminated in the primary, I have received requests to remain on my mailing list.
I will honor all requests (from those who maintain civility) and will add not only Reps, but anyone else who emails me. I will add you to a special list of people who automatically received everything I post on this blog.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who reads something here and desires to automatically receive everything I post, this is a good time to drop me a line. I'm updating the list. In fact, as I was sitting in the Manchester library the other day, a former Rep asked to be added to the list. He was.
I also struck up a conversation with a woman holding an Al Franken book in her hand. She said she missed my column in the old Manchester Mirror, and I told her about this blog. (She needs to send her email address along to me, and I'll add here to the list). By the way, I'm not a fan of Al Franken (politically speaking), but I had actually read the book and liked it. He has a great line about Barbara Bush telling him on an airplane, "I'm through with you!"
Speaking of being through with people...
I should note that rules apply to this blog. Your responses are welcome only to the extent that ad hominem attacks not be posted against me or against anyone else who chooses to post here. Of course, your post will go through but I will immediately erase it when I see it. This applies to two State Reps, both from Londonderry by the way, who were previously deleted from the master list I send out to all Reps. Now that Reps Baldie and Tambie cannot get my opinions and insights automatically, they insist on coming to this web site and responding.
I doesn't work that way, gentlemen. Consider yourself banned. As I have explained in the past, participating here is like being a guest in someone's home. If you whipped it out and began urinating on the living room floor, as a guest, you would most assuredly be asked to leave. My rule here is that once you have been banned, you are never welcome back. Baldie and Tambie have been banned and are not welcome here.
That goes also for someone who claims to be Silas.
Fortunately, the number of people banned here in small. Fortunately, most people so civil that they do not whip it out and start urinating on the floor.
