I think you are not counting on the many folks who have moved here from other areas. Nine of ten folks that I play tennis with support Obama most moved here from somewhere else. Also, many folks in the bridge room support Obama. I think we will far exceed the Asheville Stadium size. Remember, every vote in the mountains is one less McCain't is counting on.

I work at the newspaper, in fact, I help earn this reporter's salary. Tell me, why isn't there space for the bigger story on how winning over the Appalachian population can help Obama become President? We are just an hour from SW Virginia, an area that could help Obama win VA-the state with the highest number of electoral votes-HELLO!! Wake up!! Your readers are intelligent. Give them what they need and our role (as newspaper folks) in the community with remain relevent. The mountain vote is the big story here. Report it and help us keep our salaries.

Things That Are Pissing Me Off
By Gordon Smith
- I saw three people roll up to a wedding this weekend in their H2. They drove it from Atlanta. Iím not sure if it occurred to them that they were consuming irresponsibly.
- The AC-T / Topix forum is overrun with the most venomous dumbasses Iíve ever had the displeasure to read. Iíve been hanging out over there (1) as a special project to improve the spelling and grammar of the place; (2) to learn more about how the dead-enders think and communicate; and (3) to see if thereís any way to promote real debate among folks like me and folks like them.
Iíve tried kindness, sarcasm, humor, reason, madness, patience, and a mighty, mighty dollop of perseverance. Many of them are intent on openly lying, and many of them are painfully unintelligent and bigoted.
When the two combine, itís like flossing with a guitar string.
- Crackheads have babies.

Wow, that was a lot of people standing in line to see and hear Sen. Obama that line was over a mile long. it stretched half way to the river after winding around the lower parking lots at AB Tech. People on bicyles and some driving luxury cars, most folks walked, young people, middle aged people, older folks. More people than I've have ever seen at an Asheville political event.
Today was an historic event, I'm glad my son and grandson were there. If you saw the big bear you were at the right place at the right time.

You are right. There are an awful lot of people who will go to a whole lot of trouble to touch the hem of his garment- just because he claimed to initiate legislation legalize pot after he is elected.

It is a shame that same group of (supposedly selfless) people doesn't line up on Sundays to visit an invalid or volunteer in a local nursing home.
