Last night, Madame Gloria and I took a ride over to 44111 in the Kamms Corners area to chat with Rosemary Palmer and Paul Hackett, who came up from down by the river to help open the new Palmer campaign office at 15735 Lorain. Both are MeetTheBloggers alumni, Paul back in the day when both a podcast and a transcript were part of the standard offering, Rosemary far more recently.
One thing I remarked at the end of the evening was that we certainly had grown some interesting new groups of friends. The other candidates may have the support of the other local politicians, the unions, and all the other intrenched interests that essentially have gotten us to where we are today, but the people we spent 4 hours with yesterday are interesting, impassioned, outraged, and genuine and human. They're our neighbors. They're speaking out against the same structure that has disadvantaged you and me.
