You can never know what will or will not get you votes.

That was what really bothered me when the other incumbent made the racist crack about "Indian" casinos during the candidate night -- it irked me that it was not in the paper, but the reality is that it probably would have gotten him a few more votes!

I think gypsies are prime targets for the next crack. Don't let that one get away!

Ah, no, in our area the next most likely target group would be a much more obvious one . . .

No, they are generally accepted around here.

That reminds me. We invented a varient for the poker game Baseball last time that we played. (If you do not know, Baseball is seven card stud with 3s and 9s wild, usually with an option to buy a card if you get a faceup 4.) The old owner of the Minnesota Twins, Calvin Griffith, was not exactly what you could call progressive, so we came up with Baseball -- Calvin Griffith rules: 3s and 9s are wild unless they are black.

You never know what will strike you as funny at 1 am!

It is not posted online yet, but the "jew" comment did not make the paper. A little birdie told me that the reporter did indeed hear the comment and others were contacted to verify if they heard the same thing, but the publisher declined to run it. It is always delightful to see that local journalism is just as dead as national journalism.

Maybe, but they were likely not originally natives -- they may have come back with the plunder!

Well, our first attempt at streaming the meeting may have partially failed, but it did pick up the relevant portion:

It hits about 30 seconds in. The sound is faint but clear.

Completely clear. Astounding how casually it rolls off the tongue. You'd think that someone in a public position would have more control.

I emailed that link to the editor of the local paper and expressed my disappointment in failing to report it, and got this response:

Stephen,


I'm assuming your concern is for why The Sun didn't cover Kathy Demulling's gaffe. If that is your concern, I'll be more than happy to visit with you to explain our position for not publicly exposing her disappointing and unintentional use of the word "Jew" in a verb tense — not a noun tense.


Call me when you have a moment.



That leaves me nearly speechless. So the editorial standards of the paper allow people to denigrate an entire race as long is it is used as a verb instead of a noun?!?!?!?

In addition to his superior editing skills, it appears that he can read minds as well.

Reading between the lines and without knowing the situation, one would think that the reporter is protecting Demulling. Scary.

Oh, there is no doubt. I provided all the materials that I uncovered about the board member with the criminal (and civil) record, and they said that they already had the information. They just do not want to do anything with it.
