Inactivity and a forum

I know it has been a week already since my last post. Sorry, but I have been a bit busy with some things, not to mention not really in the mood to write. There were a few topics I thought about writing on, but didn't really feel like it.

Anyway, here is one topic I feel like including in a post. WHY do we not have things like this here in Selma? Why are the local TV and radio stations, newspaper(s), civic groups, and the like not putting on a forum or debate for candidates for mayor and council? At least there was something in Benson for mayor.

From the WMPM news site:
Benson Mayoral Candidates Debate At Forum - Benson Mayor Jerry McLamb and his opponent, Commissioner William Massengill, debated at the town's election forum Monday night about topics ranging from growth to crime prevention.
There is plenty more of the story on the page today. It will likely go away within a day, so click fast.

What makes people put up with the status quo? Americans are increasingly lazy. I used to not be able to imagine how an anti-Christ could come to rule the world, but you know what? It's no longer a mystery. Citizens sit and twiddle their thumbs while those who have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, trample on it. Calgon....take me away!
Incumbant creeps have nothing to gain by debating and sadly their fat cat butts will probably remain with impunity!
