Wake me up when it's Election Day

Watching primary results come in can be a frustrating experience, especially when you watch TV pundits trying to fill dead-air. That’s why you get so many film and literary references; they are desperately trying to keep the conversation rolling.


We finally switched on “Jericho” at 9pm, and watched results on commercial breaks. Same thing with “The Daily Show.”

I still think Huckabee was only in this race hoping that come summer he might be the GOP pick for vice president.

I can’t take sides, but . . .

On a local note, Lioneld Jordan will officially “come out” as a mayoral candidate this Sunday, March 9 at 2pm on the Fayetteville Square. Many hope that Jordan will focus on issues that other office seekers just never seem to notice.

Hey, if he never promises to “Keep Fayetteville Funky,” he’s got my vote!

On a more serious note, a lot of working class folk are excited by Jordan’s candidacy. Let’s see if the other candidates try to appeal to them, or will continue down the tried and true path of ignoring working class issues in Fayetteville.

No, really, that train left the station a whole long time ago

I see the “Keep Fayetteville Funky” bumper stickers, and I think, “Dude, where have you been?”

Cool Website of the Week

C.F. Roberts, a talented Fayetteville writer who also produces “Abbey of the Lemur” on Community Access Television,” has a neat website about the show - and his own personal preferences - at:

Will I blog while I'm gone, or won't I? And do you care?

Tracy has conference in Miami, Florida, for the weekend, and I am tagging along for the ride.

Maybe I’ll meet Dexter?

In a sort of “Keep up the good work,‘ kind of way - not the “I know what you’ve gotten away with, Drake,” kind of way.”
