Jake Ford To Dodge Tonight's Debate? 

Local political blog River City Mud Bugle is reporting that Independent 9th District candidate Jake Ford won't be showing up for tonight's scheduled South Main Association debate with the other two candidates — Steve Cohen and Mark White. Ford's reason: Jackson Baker is a co-moderator.

Among Ford's complaints is the fact that Baker called him "slim, well-groomed, and reasonably well spoken" in a column. Jake's retort, in so many words: "Who you callin' skinny?"

You can get all the skinny at the aptly named River City Mud.
