The Pander Problem

The following unsolicited testimonial recently was written by Dorothy F. Keys:   Have you ever noticed that, when the subject of politicians comes up, people immediately voice negative thoughts?   It may be that many seek political office for all the wrong reasons–power, prestige, personal agendas, etc. And when the less-than-sincere politician is exposed, we are quick to …

Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole

Lewis Carrol would not have been surprised to see the West Virginia State Legislature dive “down the rabbit hole” during the 2014 Session, which was twice extended, and then immediately followed by an extraordinary special session.

Sharon has a Clue

Dear Larry, I wish we had more people like you running for office. Hang in there, it must be a daunting task working in the legislative arena. It amazes and scares me that many of our leaders are so clueless. Take care. Sharon Martin P.S.: I like the way you think.

Dear Larry, For some reason, the quote “To thine own self be true, thou canst not then be false to any man” came to me just now when I thought of you. I just encourage you to continue on in your own unique way. You most certainly are not the “Cookie Cutter” politician that we’ve …
