Campaign Fallout Continues

The ugly 2007 campaign is not entirely over in Dryden. Cheryl Nelson posts a pleasant diatribe on Simon's blog, and over at the IJ, a vet continues the neverending Pledge of Allegiance flap. On the other hand, Dave Makar and I had a nice chat with John Bailey at the Chili Cookoff, proving that civility is possible, even after a divisive season.

Note to Cheryl: After losing a nasty school board race in 2003, I was quoted on the front page of the IJ saying, "In a democracy, the people get the representation they deserve." Although I do believe it, it probably wasn't the nicest thing to say, and even my friends saw it as sour grapes. Perhaps it's better to be silent at times like these.
