Un-Conventional thoughts....

Richmond and Wayne County generated a great deal of discussion a couple of weeks ago, from both supporters and detractors when the EDC proposed making a bid for a 2008 presidential debate. I'll have to admit that I was more than a little skeptical about the chances, and more than a little upset about EDIT funds being used to pursue this quest.

But, stranger things have happened, and if they can pull it off without further burdening the taxpayers, and if they will include all presidential candidates that are on the ballot that year, they will certainly deserve our congratulations.

What I really suspect, though, is that they will not land the debates, the taxpayers will be out another $2500.00, and that the County Commissioners will use the failure of not getting the debates as a reason to lobby for a tax-payer funded convention center again.
