Former Pizza Executive Joins Presidential Race
Herman Cain, who made his fortune pitching soda, burgers and pizza before turning to politics, declared himself a candidate on Saturday for something that few others seem to want these days: the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

Those cuddly rascals at The Times! No condescending, patronizing there, huh?

Well, they FINALLY published one of my POSITIVE reader comments.  27 of the 40 that were in just now were negative. I happened to be on line the moment the story went up and for about two hours afterwards when I kept dropping back in on that page.  They published the first comment within minutes of the story going live and it was a snarky one from Texas…then nothing. Zip – for two hours.  Then I come back now around 8:45 and they’ve got 40 up, mostly negative (which, really, is unsurprising given the readership… but...) One could speculate…

Were they deluged with so many POSITIVE comments they had to WAIT to get enough NEGATIVE ones to fit the narrative?

My bet is ‘yes.’

    Hey, I hopped over to your webpage from mixx. It is not something I would regularly read, but I loved your perspective on it. Thanx for making something worth reading!
