I'm not being a smarty pants. I was going to comment on his antics at the city council meetings, but I was told that he is actually mildly mentally retarded. Does anybody know for sure?

Just listen to him, then judge for yourself. Perhaps then, your key question will become the word 'mildly'.

By the way Crank, who did you con over the years to get the dough to live in that exclusive part of Fairview? from what a neighbor of your said recently you sure can lay out the BS like the best of them.
I'm just going to assume this is a joke.

I know that he thinks he looks cute or clever at the city council meetings. If you know him, be a friend, tell him he is making a complete jackass of himself.

I have known Barnes for years. He is not mentally handicapped but clearly is not very bright and that is apparent every time he opens his mouth. Many should remember his daily calls in to local talk radio about virtually any subject and how he managed to make a fool of himself repeatedly. He loves to hear himself talk. I must say the radio calls were good entertainment but got old after a while. It is not right that he has been permitted to carry on at city council meetings and he is an embarrassment to our city.

It doesn't matter. Mentally challenged or not. Everyone has the right to speak their minds.
That's what makes America, America.
At City Council, they want to hear everyone. Everyone's ideas....large, small, black, white, yellow, red, fat, thin......are important because Erie is Our City.
You can learn a lot if you open your ears wide enough, listen, and keep your mouth shut long enough so you hear people out.
Thanks for letting me share.
