District 85 Race


#1 Nov 1, 2006
Anybody seen the front page of today's A-J? Man, Mr. Landtroop has some mighty big sugar daddies!

What I wonder about is his relation to KCBD-TV and Raycom Communications. They have a webpage about Landtroop as part of their 2006 election coverage:

But I can't find any corresponding KCBD webpage about anybody else in the race. Was that a paid ad masquerading as "eletion coverage 2006", or does that TV station have something going with Jim Landtroop??? Can you buy election coverage at KCBD-TV?

Seems kind of lopsided to have a profile of just one horse in the race.

What got me interested in the District 85 race was Landtroop's tv commercials. Got real mad about them. Here's something I've been posting around.

Have you seen the TV ad attacking Joe Heflin for defending criminals?

Disgusting that a lawyer should take on accused criminals as clients! Why, it's unAmerican! Maybe the man should be put in jail alongside his clients for ever doing such a thing.

Heflin did have a choice. He coulda gone into corporate or insurance law. Moved to Dallas. Or he could have picked out better quality clients to defend.(Maybe those Enron folks.)

Nevermind some legal mumbo-jumbo called "presumption of innocence." Or that most of Heflin's clients were just accused of the charges he defended them on. He should have known better than to dirty his hands in the American criminal justice system.

Those TV commercials got me thinking. Let's just do away with courts alltogether. Let the police departments convict and sentence criminals. We won't need prosecutors or judges or juries. Or defense attorneys.

Maybe we can even do away with elections.

Note on first post. KCBD has a page on each of the candidates. For some reason, the others do not show up on Google--maybe because there are more links to the Landtroop page.

Again, KCBD's coverage is not lop sided.

My other comments stand.
