* The name Karl Burns is well known to the 50+ crowd who remember the former mayor and drug store owner from the 60s,70, and 80's.
I spotted his grandson's name on a petition vacancy committee and the young man known as Colin Burns, is actually Karl C. Burns. It was one of those flashback moments.
* The Times reported today the City Council wants lap top computers so they don't have those big stacks of paper agendas to wrestle with.
I told the manager, I don't want one, just email it to me. The last thing I want is a city cell phone or a city laptop that the media jackals can FOIL to check up on me.
* A high ranking local Democrat told me today he thought Sarah Palin did a great job on the Today Show this morning. Better be careful. That's just not on the Democratic list of talking points. I won't reveal who it was.
