Stay tuned to CM: Election mystery solved NLT 8:14amCT today
We rarely do this. And hate it when Tv stations drone on and on and on and on about news after the break (but first this important message). It may be the biggest reason why more people are obtaining news from the internet or at the country store every day
"Jim" entitles it, "An Adair County Profile in Courage."But this story, to be revealed, ranks right up there, for me, with the day I discovered, with the help of Mr. Richard Phelps, the grave of Adair County hero Lingan Selby. It is the answer to an election question which has troubled great political thinkers of the ages, even for Adair County Clerk Bob White, as I remember.
No later than 8:14am today, Monday, election eve, 2010, we aim to post this amazing discovery, about an Adair County election held over 100 years ago.
Just to firmly equivocate on the subject of prior restraint, it wasn't my idea to hold back this important revelation. "Jim" embargoed the news, "until Monday or Tuesday," when he sent it to me. And we don't want to tick him off. He knows too much, and despite his upbringing in the Sacred Triangle of Sano/Ono/Esto of Russell Co., and his gentle Quaker ways, it's untelling what retribution might befall one who provokes him.
It may be "Jim's" magnum opus. Though he produces a magnum opus almost every week, sometimes twice a week. I'll say no more for now. More after the break -Ed Waggener
