- Also, on the Enquirer's Fort Thomas page, I found two anti-tea party letters to the editor written on the same day - both from Fort Thomas residents. Can't say I recognize either name, but the timing of the two letters makes me kind of think it may be a Clark Kent/Superman thing.

I won't mention their names, but if you feel inclined they are here and here.

- The Statewide Smoking Ban is heating up.

- #snOMG 1.4 to come our way tonight? The groundbreaking reporting continues.


  1. I'm glad to see there are some common sense non-tea partiers in this town! Gosh, maybe there's even more than 3 of us!

  2. Anti-Tea Party. Hilarious. Regurgitated Keith Olbermann. Don't know who he is? He's the guy who got fired by MSNBC. Not familiar with that channel? Don't worry, most people don't either.

    Mark - I know how difficult it was for you to not say anything too disparaging about these anti-tea party people. But kudos for your journalistic integrity.

  3. Thanks?

    Don't have any anonymous' in my phone book, but yeah, those letters are pretty ridiculous.

  4. Geez.. conspiracy theorists?

    Lighten up.. I do recognize one of those letter writers.. and, he isn't the type of person to assume an alias. And, he is a frequent "Letter to the Editor" contributor..

    Also.. if you don't want anonymous comments, then don't allow them. You do run the blog, right?

  5. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.sbo
