-Thanks to Liz for running photo of my 1998 banner.
-If you are running for high office, the place to be this Memorial Day was Henderson where there was a parade with some 65 units...including candidates for State Senate and Assembly.
Meanwhile in Watertown, I was the sole politico again this year at the observance held in front of the American Legion Post 61 on Sterling Street.
Hate to sound like I am on a high horse...but Memorial Day is not a holiday...it's an observance and the election stuff can and should be put aside...There's a Dairy Parade this Friday with plenty of room for candidates.
I have found the veterans and patriots who attend such affairs are appreciative to have their local leaders attend...act reverant and say a few words.
-Somebody told me today that some folks didn't want me at that Mercy Hospital meeting on Friday because they don't want to read about it on this blog. Let me say this about that.
There are lots of meetings I am in and conversations I have that are not in this blog when the public interest is served.......So please don't use that lame excuse....
-Republicans I talk to openly talk about how badly Rick Lazio will get crushed this fall. Yet they are still going to nominate him this week....
-Meanwhile US Senate hopeful David Malpass called me this morning to ask my support at next weekend's Indy convention. It was nice of him to call and he has good credentials on economic issues, but his prospects for beating Kirsten Gillibrand are not that good.
-As for Senator Gillibrand, I would like to see her put that shotgun back under her bed even if it would upset Gerry Nadler and Anthony Wiener.
-Let's all get back to our usual routine on Tuesday by listening to the HOTLINE at noon at WATN-AM 1240 !
