I guess AWB has decided he doesn’t want to hear any comments or explanations about the Kelty victory – especially if they might be accurate. See his post titled ONE DOWN – ONE TO GO at http://www.angrywhiteboy.org.
He made the following statement in the last part of his post:
“Fort Wayne sent a message to its leaders yesterday. They’re tired of the status quo. Tom Henry is part of the status quo. Kelty will be Fort Wayne’s next mayor.”
I, of course, could not resist the temptation to call his attention to the fact that the voter turnout was only 13% -hardly a mandate to “throw the bums out.” Kelty simply ran a better campaign – his victory really had nothing to do with disenchantment with the status quo.
I also commented on John Crawford’s victory despite his support of the smoking ban and Harrison Square. While he came in third, he still retained his chance to run on the Republican ticket in the fall. Hmm, where were all those screaming, ticked-off hoards of Republican voters who were going to give John Crawford his comeupance for his positions?
Apparently, they decided to stay home, as did a huge percentage of the registered voters. Perhaps the Kelty – Peters race was not as enticing and exciting as AWB seemed to think.
I posted my comments. Of course, the familiar statement, “your comments are waiting moderation”, was present. I checked last night, and they weren’t posted. But, I also noticed that AWB hadn’t posted anything yesterday, so I gave him a break. He must have been really tired from his campaigning ordeal. I hadn’t had any trouble in the past with my comments appearing on the blog, so I had no reason to think my posting this time would be any different.
Low and behold, when I checked again today, my comments had disappeared, yet AWB had updated his site with new “material.” My comments were gone, never to see the light of AWB’s column. The comment hyperlink had the forlorn, “No Comments” at the bottom. But, I thought to myself, I made some comments, and they weren’t nasty or mean comments.
Alas, my comments appear to have fallen victim to AWB’s cherry picking. Could it be he will now selectively dispatch into cyberspace any negative comments about his man Matt?
