Shaunna Heckman's band is playing Thursday at Lucé.

Also: the Artist Relief Fund is still around? Their web site is woefully out of date, and I haven't heard anything from them in quite some time. j-i-l-l-o?

I think the fund is still afloat; contact Bob DeArmond maybe..?

I have been a building trades union member for the past 34 years and a veteran who proudly served my country when called upon. I strongly suggest that voters consider the fact that Frank Jewell was a draft dodger who chose not to serve his country when he was called upon. How can he possibly serve the residents of St. Louis County with honor and integrity? I respectfully suggest that your vote does not go to Mr. Jewell.

Draft dodger? You mean, he got a legitimate deferment? Do you think that being in the military automatically makes one honorable or full of integrity? Does being opposed to war make one unfit for public office?

Yeah, cuz Fink reeks of integrity. I know Frank, and Fink, sir ... is NO Frank! By the way, how's the walleye fishing at Fink's place on Fish Lake?

Um, the U.S. has been involved in a number of unlawful wars of aggression.  The honorable thing to do is to refuse to take part (although that choice can be very difficult given the control and power of the U.S.).  I commend Frank for having the courage to refuse to take part in an imperialist and brutal regime.

Draft dodgers and those who go AWOL (esp. for moral reasons) are both on my Good Guys list.

Even draft dodgers and sons of senators (and other politicians, who surely would have had their asses shot off in VietNam) who now wholly support the war machine?

There are some out there who got out of duty who probably should have experienced war and killing firsthand (I'm looking at you, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and George Bush). Might have shaped and dictated our current policy of prosecuting "rogue nations."

I think Mr Fink is the one who lacks integrity: sexual harasssment charges;  living like a king on the taxpayer's dime, traveling around the country (and claiming KY jelly as a business expense, not just the $300/nt hotels); the Fish Lake scandal. I know Frank Jewell and think we need someone sane and honest on that board, I have never seen Mr. Jewell treat a subordinate with disrespect, and I can't imagine him taking advantage of the lack of oversight over the county commissioners' travel budgets to live it up on the road. I would hope OGDuluthian would stop obsessing over what someone did 40-45 years ago that was the right thing for that person to do, and is that person's business, and would instead look a little harder into an elected official's ongoing peccadilloes that truly impact us as taxpayers.

Anyone who serves time in the slammer for resisting war has got major cojones. Only weenies and chickenhawks would call him a draft dodger.

Ahhh yes, zra... hypocrisy is a problem. Refusing to go to war (one way or another) is not.

I don't get this mentality that a person is more qualified for office if they served in the military.

Let's not get sidetracked: SOUNDS LIKE A COOL PARTY!

Claire

Yeah, Jack is so right on, anyone who can get Alan Sparhawk to perform at a fundraiser for him gets my vote!

OGDuluthian is a tool ... and that's just the beginning of the story.

Hopefully those who support Frank will help put OGDuluthian in his place this Thursday and then, more importantly, Nov. 2.

I won't be swift-boated into voting for a Fink.

OG: as a long-term union building trades member, why did you not question Frank Jewell about this issue at the Central Labor Body candidate screening, when he was endorsed by the Labor Community at large?

TONIGHT! 

Hope to see you all there!!

Woo hoo!!!

Claire

Tamara, do you really need to ask that question? Seems to me it's easy to be a tough guy under cover of anonymity. I'm sorry, if someone's too much of a coward to own his or her own words, I don't take it too seriously. Alan Sparhawk, though!!! I take him seriously! See you all at the Jewell fundraiser tonight!

T'was the night before elections

And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap 
Had cut off the TV 
tired of political clap-trap 

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise 
I peered out my window 
Saw obama and his boys 

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay 
To give to the others 
Who had not worked a day! 

He snatched up my money 
And quick as a wink 
Jumped back on his bandwagon 
As I gagged from the stink 

He then rallied his henchmen 
Who were pulling his cart 
I could tell they were out 
To tear my country apart! 

'On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers! 
On Acorn, On Pelosi' 
He screamed at the pairs! 

They took off for his cause
And as they flew out of sight 
I heard him laugh at the nation 
Who wouldn't stand up and fight! 
So I leave you to think
On this one final note-

.................................................... 
GET OUT AND VOTE !!!! 
GOD BLESS AMERICA , OUR ONLY HOPE! 
..................................................................

LOL ... God's got nothing to do with it. Keep reaching for that rainbow, though.
