Hackett vs. The Slugger


From the SB Independent this item:
Hackett’s Comeback: William Hackett, who made news earlier this year for his involvement in a fight at a local Unitarian Church library, has decided to throw his hat in the ring for the upcoming November mayoral election. The longtime Santa Barbara resident and often loquacious “professional thinker” has run unsuccessfully for mayor several times in the past. He hopes to fare better this year, running against incumbent Marty Blum on a rather anemic platform that boasts simply, “a new freedom for Santa Barbara.” Hackett opines that his plan of a “freedom fee” of two cents per gallon of gasoline will allow MTD buses to run free of charge and in turn sway voters his way. Until Hackett’s announcement, Mayor Blum had been running unopposed in her campaign for re-election.
Wow! How the hell do you get kicked out of the Unitarian Church? The new Bruce Rittenhouse -- just like the old Bruce Rittenhouse, only way effing crazier. Doubt he's got much of a chance against The Slugger, Marty Blum.

Prediction: Strike November 1st, Hackett's out.

It occurs to me.. For someone who likes to take people at the Newspress to task as much as you do, you don't seem to have the courage to put your own names and contact information (or even your profile) on your blog.
I'm just sayin'...

Of course, you'll probably delete this comment.

Funny, that coming from a comment by, ummm, anonymous! But thanks for coming by -- and keep commenting! And about contact info, I'll add that to both our very first post Welcome! and do a new housekeeping post soon. We are adding and to and updating our template, but in the meantime, that should help...I'd send you an e-mail, but hey, well, you know, no contact info, anonymous.
