It happened so quickly I hardly noticed it. The only thing that gave it away was the large amount of Tribune stories that (all of a sudden) started flooding our Greeley Topix page. Then (to my surprise) I noticed that us normal guys could now access these stories without putting a quarter in the slot. You see, I have been finding my local news at so many other sites that I forgot the Tribune existed (and isn't that a marvellous thing).
We had finally defeated them (we Greeleyites) and cast off the shackles of 142 years of one newspaper oppression. Hurray!
Such was the case with the Tea Party Movement and (what looked like) the beginning of the first viable third party in modern history. Well sir, the problem was that we weren't strong enough to form our own party (the little guy usually isnt) and so in the usual fashion, we handed our power over to the republicans (we thought they thought like us...brother, did we get it wrong).
Now here we all are (once again) wanting that "do over" box to check on our next election ballots. Just when we thought for once it wouldn't be a case of the lesser of two evils, soon we didn't even have THAT choice! My challenge to the Tea Party and the Occupiers/99%ers or whatever they call themselves this week, would be for them to put forward their own candidates.
I don't know about you, but a Presidential run-off election is more desirable than frightening to me. I'd rather see a third or fourth party than a *Fifth Column in this Nation of ours.
Oh, and getting back to the Tribune, this may seem to be an end to our **Fourth Branch of Government in our little hamlet of Greeley but we've got to continue to ignore them, and seek our information from other sources (this is the information age). I've found my local news just fine without them and the only way they'll win is if we now go back to them.
* see Britannica online encyclopedia.

That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
