Sylvia Smith hits the nail on the head with respect to Souder's fake-concern over Iraq policy:
Souder was so close to voting last week to require the bulk of the troops to be withdrawn by next spring. He said he probably would have supported a fall deadline. It seems to me if a lawmaker has reached a decision that a major troop withdrawal is the proper course, then quibbling over six months is not something to defend to a family from New Haven that loses a son or daughter to the next IED.
Notice that Souder hasn't been proposing any bipartisan legislation to bring our troops home.
Karen Francisco and Tracy Warner want you to believe that nobody is responsible for your increase in property taxes - you know, stuff happens:
Who’s to blame for higher tax bills?
The decisions of so many officials affect tax bills that none is responsible.
Would you expect anything less from an editorial page that has never seen a tax increase it didn't like?
Kudos to the Three Rivers Festival workers, Allen County Sheriff Ken Fries and all the officers that helped apprehend a purse snatcher.
A couple of personal observations
Another bar closed today - Fenders, located in the shopping center at Coldwater and Dupont, is officially closed
A few people I spoke with were quite annoyed by the political presence of both mayoral campaigns at the TRF parade. They were trying to enjoy the event with their kids and were being constantly bombarded with political propaganda.
