Sickening.

Even the thought of such action is sickening.

With deep respect for Ted Strickland, my opinion is that at 73 he is no longer a good

electoral candidate.
I say that as one who is several years older than Gov. Strickland.
I would say that about any candidate for office.
The energy, the mental acuity is just not sustainable over a two-, four-, six-year period. Sorry.

Sounds as though you're saying the ODP is impotent. nt

I couldn't agree with you more.

Sadly, this is not likely to be the year to change governors, though I will still vote for FitzGerald.
Let's try to get some of those other Dem candidates over the hump.

I especially like Connie Pillich, running for State Treasurer against Josh Mandel, a self-promoting con man from day one.
Connie Pillach has a very resume, and gave up a state rep. position to run, so it would be a pity for her not to win.

Would also like to see David Pepper win against Mike DeWine. He's worked hard for Dems in SW Ohio, against a strong Republican machine.

The ODP frequently has a problem finding a good candidate.

In 2010 they ran Lee Fisher against Rob Portman.
Portman was beatable, but not by Lee Fisher, an uninspired and uninspiring candidate.

Sorry to say, but these candidates from Cleveland - no experience or name-recognition outside that area- don't fare well in the rest of the state.

Ted Strickland was from SE Ohio, as well as being a Congressman and caught the imagination of enough Ohioans to win the governorship. Sadly, now he's past his prime and wouldn't do as well in any subsequent elections.

Congressman Tim Ryan has enough charisma to do well statewide, but he's either waiting for better timing or wants to stay in Washington. I can't fault him for his own reasons, about which he knows better than I.

Thank hou for being there for those vets.

I honestly wouldn't care that they are vets.

You are there giving comfort to the persons they are, human being in need if comfort and caring.
Recognizing their humanity.
You can't do anything better with your time.

Nice pic, but where's the grey hair?

He did earn it, you know.

Stay home with your family? I presume you're referring to

Ernst, not the "we" the voters>

Wow! Memories of something that hasn't come to mind for 60+ yrs.

The CUA archives link mentions the publisher, George Pflaum, as well as the Junior Catholic Messenger, we received on a regular basis for years.

I don't know if any of these were still around in the 70's when my kids were mostly still in grade school.
Junior Catholic Messenger was our early link to the adult world outside.

My family received a subscription from my father's aunt to Life magazine, which was an early window to the world.
By high school in the early 50's I had added Time magazine, which I read thoroughly and faithfully.

Gave up Time late in adulthood, when it became a shadow of its former self.
