Another Standing Room Only Event?

Ok. Sheriff candidate Mike Hislop is having another fundraiser on Monday. This time at Babetta's. If it's in the banquet room, which sounds likely as they're selling tickets, it might not be so easy to fill the room.

I'm putting Rose in charge of stopping by Babetta's and seeing how many people show up. Some of the rest of you should also stop by just in case Rose can't make it. No need to pay for a meal. Just peek in the door and see how many people are there.

If none of you show up, then I guess I'll just have to ask Babs herself.

Addendum: Interesting that they shut down the Topix comments on this T-S news story. Was it something I wrote?

Nah. Just open the door, make a rough count of the people there, then RUN LIKE HELL!

Great. That's just what Humboldt needs. More anon idiots barging in on a decent political event crashing it just to seem like they are credible professional reporters.

Nope. Just peeking inside to see how many people actually show up. I think the Times- Standard's numbers may have been way off when they reported on Hislop's campaign kick- off event.

Gee. The Topix comments to the T-S story on this are still shut down. I wonder whose idea it was to pull them?

The last comment I saw before they shut them down was mine, although I suppose there might of been some after mine.

Some guy commented that $30.00 was a lot to pay for a spaghetti dinner and that Downey's fundraiser only charged $10.00.

I replied that, first, it is a fundraiser. Also, since Downey has way more supporters than Hislop, Hislop has to ask for more from his supporters to make up the difference. For instance, Hislop can get $30.00 from 3 supporters to get $90.00. Downey would only have to get $10.00 from 9 supporters to get as much.

I'm wondering if my comment was the cause for closing comments and who had them shut down. Did the T-S folks not want that comment there, or did the Hislop folks ask them to shut them down?

There was some comment about shooting things - I asked if they were going to be using Hislop/Gallegos' AR-15s...

Yeah, I saw that. Can't believe that would of been bad enough to have to shut comments down.

No, from what I am hearing there were alot more comments. I didn't check back, so I am not sure if what i am hearing is true.

Hey Fred, I took the "Nolan Chart" test on Glenn Beck's site. It says I'm a Libertarian. Should I be happy?

Yes, you should be happy. You should probably register to vote as a Libertarian, as well.
