I’ve been very interested in the Charles Pugh thing. He is definately well-liked and I think will have a struggle because of the gay thing. The suburbs have been more accepting of the gay community than the urban black community has. This was shown when prop 8 was shot down in in CA. They said it was becasue of the “urban black vote”.
Also, you talk about his transition from TV star to politician. It’s really no different than others Detroit who have transitioned into poitics from elsewhere. Think Martha Reeves (singer/pop star), Dave Bing (Piston and buisiness man), and Ken Cockrel Jr. (journalist)just to name a few.
I think, and it’s unfortunate, that his biggest struggle will definately be the “gay thing” and it will definately be used against him by his opponents.
I, on the other hand, hope he succeeds.

Sam Riddle kind of reminds me of Jeff Fieger. A great showman full of charisma that you have to love, but you know he just a slime underneath it all.
Robert Bobb is a refreshing change to Detroit City Shools. I remember the days of the school board riding around in limos when the school system was (still) going broke. This absolutely wonderful public figure is a god-send to the city of detriot. Democrat, Republican, Communist, or whatever party he runs for. If he ever runs for anything in my district, he has my vote! I hope he never leaves.
Great show guys!

I thought you might like to see this. Read the bottom first. It’s a letter I got from Rochester Schools. My response is the message just below, which I sent to the superintendant and the principal of my daughter’s school. I thought you might find this interesting and if you have any connections that you could leverage out my way to create a big “hullaballoo” out here (hehe).

Subject: President’s Address to the Children
I received a copy of the email below and was rather upset to find out that a handful of parents in our community are taking a nice message to the children, from our democratically-elected sitting President of the United States, and turning it into something political. I teach my daughter right from wrong, to be respectful of others views, and treat everyone how she would like to be treated. By blocking this message from her view does not follow the pathway to peace that she is being taught. It teaches her, at an early age, to be biased over views that she is too young to comprehend. It also teaches her to be a sore loser by showing her that some parents, because they may not agree with the President’s politics, can be angry about not winning. This gives mixed messages and creates a moral conflict between the “everyone’s a winner” and “sometimes we can’t all be winners” strategies that our kids are being taught.
My wife and I teach our daughter that we should always support our sitting President no matter who it is. I told her we supported the decisions made by President George Bush, we will support the decisions made by President Barack Obama, and we will support the decisions made by every democratically elected President. We teach her that even if we think the sitting President is making the wrong decisions, then we have to wait until the next election and speak out with our voting power.
I would love for an age-appropriate message to be distributed among the children about why they are not allowed to hear the message the President has for them. I would also love to have the message electronically so my daughter can view the message of encouragement herself.
Thank you so much for your time,
Thomas M. Perry

Subject: President Obama’s Address to Students
Rochester Community Schools was notified by the U.S. Department of Education that President Obama would be speaking to students via a web-based address on September 8, 2009 at noon. The first day of school is generally a very full day for teachers and students, and many students will be either at lunch or in a classroom with previously planned activities taking place at that time. We have also received a few calls from parents who are concerned about elementary and middle school students viewing a message parents have not had the opportunity to preview. Therefore, Rochester Community Schools will not be broadcasting the address in elementary or middle schools. The district will tape the address and make it available to high school students as an optional activity during the lunch hour on Wednesday, September 9.
It is our understanding that the president’s message to students is to work hard, set high educational goals and take responsibility for their learning. I would encourage parents to discuss with their children what this means within the context of their family’s educational goals.

Keep trashing Andy Dillon and I’ll keep sending the checks. j/k
But seriously… Why does the democratic party allow Andy Dillon to be part of the Democratic party when he can’t even support some of their core values (abortion, stem cells, UAW, etc.)?
Keep trashing that POS!
