The Democratís Scorched Earth Policy
It seems every day the mailman brings yet another vicious Democratic Party
political missive. The "ins," who are on shaky ground, attack Republican
candidates with such vile to make one wonder if Democrats are selling their
souls to the devil just for the power of political office. The dignity of public
service apparently no longer exists.

Getting out of this mess
Here are some proposals many of you might embrace:
1. LETíS START A PETITION DRIVE to recall The Ever Loviní Mareís election
and install an interim chief executive. There are a couple polecats around the
yard, who might do a better job. What is surprising is that there are eight or 10
people who think sheís doing a good job.

Can you believe it? Little Joe Bartlettís Mommy created mayhem in the name of fair elections at no
less than three polling places in Frederick County on Election Day.

The Cops and Their Endorsement
The Fraternal Order of Police is trying its luck again in being a mover and shaker in the county. We already know it can undermine a good police force and discredit a couple of good chiefs. They get no noogies for that. We understand it has about 120 members but now less than 10 voted to give the unionís endorsement to a Stateís Attorney candidate who apparently is a political newcomer.

NEA Rears its Ugly Mug Again
Once again our children head off to school. What will this year hold for them? Will they be challenged? Will they be assaulted? Will they be suspended for having a nail file in their book bags? Will they be suspended for being insensitive to someone of another color or persuasion? Will they learn anything to help them when they become responsible adults?

The Ever Lovin' Mare, Now She's Top Cop
If you ask me, we're still looking for our chief of police. I thought we hired Major Kim Dine to be our top cop, but it turns out Mayor Jennifer Dougherty is really the chief, considering recent news reports.

Polling Broadway on Rules of Disengagement
A journalist must always use caution in writing about public figures,
especially those who say and do things in public that besmirch the high
reputation of elected leaders. Therefore, in search of journalistic
fairness, we decided to poll a sampling of citizens on Broadway to see if
they understand why there is so much hormonal imbalance in Silly Hall these

Taxes, Count 'em
Let's see. The Ever Lovin' Mare bumped up the real estate taxes. Oh, Donna,
Marcia and Joe liked it. Bill Hall and Dave Lenhart didn't.

Sweet Sue and the Tip Jars, Remember?
There's one thing Del. Sue Hecht (D.,3rd) doesn't want anyone to bring up in
this election - so we will. Remember the tip jar brouhaha that she
instigated about five years ago? If any member of the Elks, Moose, the Owls,
or any of the veteran's organizations remembers it, they will vote for a
yellow dog before they'll draw an arrow to her name. She was, and may still
be, their worst nightmare!

On Democrats, Excuse Me!
How thrilling it must be to be a Democrat these days. Your party is in
disarray having lost its national agenda and showing its obstructionist
leanings in this time of national crisis.

Cyber Salvos On The Mark
The Washington Compost didn't disappoint last Sunday when Frederick
David Snyder made us proud, telling the political junkies in the D.C.
Metropolitan area about the impact of The Tentacle
Frederick. If you missed it, it's on page C-4 of the Sunday edition.

Humpty Dumpty has a Great Fall
Way to go county commissioners! The Ever Lovin' Mare finally met her match!
Until last week, she was having her way with the press, holding sway on
every issue, conducting court in her Silly Hall office for the select few.

Union Busting - Out With The Leeches
There was a time when the "union" meant everything to the workingman. It could be as oppressive and repressive as the corporate big shots with whom
they sparred. So now, the city workers are being bullied into voting for union representation. Better get the old resume updated, because no
good can come of it!

Lemonade and Liberty in Baker Park
What a celebration we had nationally for the Glorious Fourth! God was
everywhere, especially in West Virginia where the local Methodist minister
thrilled our souls with his prayer that America right itself from the social
morass of political correctness. The Washington Times reported the media was
so aghast at the prayer that they had trouble paying attention to President
George W. Bush.

Spirit of 76 - Gasping for Breath
We live in a different America this July 4, 2002. We are in a war as certain
as we were in July 1942. But that was "Roosevelt's War," they say. Today it'
s "Dubya's War," they continue.

Big City Stench Arrives In Downtown Frederick
The fact that the atheists are coming to town on their bandwagon to take
over Winchester Hall in July is among the hot topics making the rounds in
Frederick City and County.

The Last Tango For Parris
When it comes to big-time losses, only the late former Gov. Spiro T. Agnew
can outdo Gov. Parris Glendening and Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend.

Frederick's "Boat Race"
Of all the horse races we see this season, none is more likely to leave the citizens of the Square Corner short of rent money than the much anticipated Police Stakes. Choo-Choo Fred and Octopus John are telling me this is the hottest race since Our Charlie puts his pistol in the carpet bag.
