Okay, I'm posting twice. I’ve never done that before but it's been a week and there are some things I'd like to share.

Governor Patrick will be in Springfield on April 11 at Springfield Technical Community College for a two-hour town meeting filled with Q&A time starting at 6 p.m. in Scibelli Hall. I hope there will be a good turnout that will include people who are not sold yet on his brand of leadership or the substance of his first 100 days in office.

I'm very tired of people who sit back and either complain without taking some sort of action to make conditions better and people who ignore their local politics in order to be a pundit on the national stuff. I don't care if you agree with Patrick or not, but being involved and being informed is far superior than ripping off a juicy blog post based on third or fourth hand information and believe you're "connected."

Hope to see you there.

Mark, I think he's talking to you!

Well, I guess we'll never know, since he RARELY responds to responses here.

But I think it's wishful thinking on your part, Mr. B.

Mr. D, if you'd be so kind to settle this: Are you talkin ta me?

Mike Dobbs said...

No I wasn't directing this at you specifically, but rather the legion of people out there who fall into the classification I was describing.

I don't know how involved you are personally with town or state politics since political discussions are actually quite rare between us.

When we do talk it's generally about national politics and it's generally a short discussion. I'd like to think we could reach middle ground on some issues, but we seldom speak that long!

I'm just glad Bissette's wrong. That's all that matters.

Dobbsy, I remember differently. I think we have reached middle ground several times.
