Comments: Ain't Democracy Grand?

Dang. I thought at the very least it would be close. It wasn't even that.

You thought there were more Mom's that wanted to poison their children in their schools? The "fractivists" are an amazing bunch.

No sir, not close at all. I had hoped for a few BoT seats for the forces of reason and enlightenment, but everyone -- myself included -- had a list of candidates.

Eire is lost, the Visigoths have won.

I have a hard time accepting that two-thirds of Erie's voting public are fractivists, or are even sympathetic to the overwrought opinions of same. Instead I think it was a knee-jerk backlash against "outside interest groups [are] spending big money on the town of Erie's election."

The Boulder Daily Camera's story headlined "Pro-fracking group pours $55K into Erie election" probably did far more harm than the $55K did good.

All my positions always seem to suffer from a gross asymmetry of explanation. "Do you want them fracking an oil well 500' from your child's school?" I consider it wondrous that we got 33%.
