Re: “MAD AS HELL: After Tucson, the GOP Has Some 'Splaining to Do

Sad. I feel extremely sorry for the families of the deceased who have to put up with this garbage. I am positive that you will hear the President himself denounce such pathetic attempts to politicize this tragedy when he speaks tomorrow. May none of us ever have to personally deal with anything so horrific.

Re: “On Reinventing Government

If this organization wants the citizens of Shelby County to trust in the government and to have us believe that this new consolidated government will work for them, I have a great suggestion for you. Remove any hint of conflict of interest from your organization. Brian Stephens should step down from this organization or the Election Commission. End of story. Until this happens, unfortunately the voters see the perception of the same old players trying to line up an inside straight. In your current form, you have zero percent chance of persuading those against consolidation otherwise.

Re: “On Reinventing Government

Big bloated city government + debt ridden county government + inept politicians = a unified metro government that is lean and mean and completely efficient.

That is called new math and it doesn't add up. Prove you can fix the existing problems before you combine the two. It's like the disfunctional couple who can't make a dating relationship work, so they decide to get married to fix all the problems. We all know how that turns out.
