A DEBATE! SORT OF...


Well, we had the debate all planned out nice and simple. Meet in Danforth Quinn's living room, get Chessup Public Access to cover it, talk about a few issues. Then, mid-week, it got all complicated. Winston-Blank-is-too-busy-this. Winston-Blank-needs-to-leave-by-a-certain-time-that. We tried to work it out. Then, on Thursday night, we find out he's not coming at all, but will participate by speaker phone. So Bonnie sets it all up (BONNIE'S NOTE: WE HAD TO CHANGE MR. QUINN'S PHONE JACK, HE WAS STILL USING ROTARY).

But what happens? Chessup Public Access never shows up. Blank never calls us. And apparently they got the word out to the citizens, because none of you showed up either! So once again, big media gets together with big business to deprive you, the voter, of a chance to talk about the issues. Plus, Bonnie had made a mess of Apple Pan Dowdy, which we were going to share with attendees. Your loss!

God Bless Verne, and God Bless America.

I purposely made a mess of the apple pan dowdie. That is the last thing the mayor needs (see above posts). We need the mayor to stay healthy so he can continue to lead Verne into greatness.

Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy!

I never get enough of that wonderful stuff!

Actually we got it at the HandiMart whenever I can talk Lamona into making it!

To All Concerned:

I see Ms. Yoder could not resist a wisecrack about my rotary telephone. I merely wish to point out that when the great collapse occurs (you know the one I'm talking about) and all your cell phones and wireless phones are utterly useless, my rotary will still get the job done.

Always Thinking Ahead,
DANFORTH QUINN
