Taking Names

Due to (primarily) professional and (partially) personal circumstances, I haven’t been able to focus on local events of late.  So here is a short missive:

Sheriff James Fitzgerald has got to go.  I read the report.  If only 10% of the allegations are true, that should be sufficient for him to vacate the office.  He has lost the moral authority to lead, and should step down immediately.

On another issue, Mike Smith, perhaps gearing up for another spectacular failed run for the Board of Education, crossed the line in his recent testimony before the Howard County BoE.  He should be ashamed of himself.  Should he decide to seek public office again, this blog might decide to focus a fair amount of time and attention on his candidacy.  Such a campaign would probably not enjoy that level of scrutiny.  Speaking of 2018, I probably already have five posts on the sundry limitations of Christine O’Connor.  That is just scratching the surface.

Stay tuned, as more will follow.
