I had several people ask me about the future of the Blog yesterday, and whether or not I would continue running it.
I was kind of surprised that they asked.
I know I've gotten a lot of flak from lots of people for running a campaign blog for Kelly Siegler. One guy, yesterday, who I assume was this former-prosecutor guy James Rust (the one that Lykos had to go back 20 years and 200 miles away to get for a last minute endorsement) even told me that I needed to change the name of the blog.
I understand their criticisms, and this blog has been very political and very pro-Kelly over the past three months.
And if this was a blog on Gardening, I would understand their criticism. But this blog is on Life at the Harris County Criminal Justice Center, and there has been nothing more important within the CJC over the past four months than this election. Could I have been more neutral (okay, a lot more neutral)?
Sure I could have. But Kelly Siegler was the best choice by a long shot in this race, and Lykos was by far the worst. There was no avoiding the topic.
The Republican Race is over now, so hopefully those of you seeking a more neutral discussion of life around the Old CJC will get what you are looking for.
There are still lots of politics to talk about and countless and countless issues for Mark and I to disagree with each other over. :-)
But for now, if you prefer a little less politics with your coffee, you'll probably get your wish. At least for a while.
To those who thought I would take down the blog because the Republican Race is over, well, you just don't know how much JAGJO inspired me to keep writing!
