I’ll be on 980WCAP tomorrow, as will other bloggers, between 7 and 8am; my slot is for after the 7:30 news. I’ll be discussing great recipes that can put your leftover turkey to good use.
Just kidding, I think the topic will be a little more political. At any rate, it should be fun. Tune in!
Update: You can now go listen for yourself on WCAP’s archives! Thanks Teddy for having me on.
Lowell City Councilor Rita Mercier crticizing those who post anonymous comments on local political blogs in Lowell, Massachusetts. Lowell City Council meeting - July 21, 2009
Please don’t hate this Open Thread.
So I was wrong in my Lyle post last Wednesday. I am retracting part of my commentary made there.
Specifically, it wasn’t Elliot who Lyle was talking about as “other elected officials” who are upset at my comments on this blog (over, I presume, the course of seven whole years). It was the other one I could have predicted is unhappy with me, Councilor Rita Mercier. (Damn, and I though my video commentary clip of Elliot the other week was pretty clever. I’ll have to make more of a nuisance of myself.)
MERCIER SAID she was not surprised by Lupien’s posting.
“She has a dirty trash mouth and that is wrong,” Mercier said. “No one should ever say somebody should be hung. I give Mary Jo credit for going to police and I hope she gets Lynne’s blog shut down so she stops trying to bully people in a nasty way.”
I find it rather telling that Rita wants to shut down free speech, just because it disagrees with her. Think about that for a moment. (more…)
