Courier Columnist Nails the Aldermen Issue

David Hughes has been a member on since very close to its beginning, but he reported for the Courier long before that. He graduated from Benton High School in 19(edit). He no longer reports for The Courier, but he now writes a column about Internet issues.
This week, his column is all about our darling situation with three Bryant City Councilmen suing anonymous users for defamation, as well as serving a subpoena to MySaline in hopes of obtaining private information that may lead to the revealing of those members' identities.
Here is that column...

I find the whole affair redundant and depressing. I have better things to do and that's why I rarely comment on Dabbs or Dabbs related issues anymore. I may add in a snippet here and there but otherwise...well I have said enough on it today.

Mr. Ray, I was only talking about Duck's tired comments.  But I would respectfully disagree that the entire topic is a yawn, if only for the fact that we are not the ones keeping it going.  This group of people (who our latest "conspirator," Mr. James) refers to as "The Three Stooges," are the ones instigating and stoking the fires.  It is they that you should be tired of, not those of us who point to their mishandling of their jobs spent for a year in pursuing another elected official as part of a conspiracy.

I do understand that you find the whole affair mind-numbing.  So do I.

Yawn is right Shadow. But I think it about all posts regarding this topic. ALL posts...

I started 4 blogs in a 2 year period yeah that does make me a busy person.

Prove it, Duck.  I am unaware of any of Linda's posts being deleted.  As a matter of fact, just recently I reposted a link to an exchange between us so that others could read her threats, while accusing me wrongly of the same thing.  If she's been deleted, where did I get the postings?  You are not starting blog posts?  Really?  Everyone click on this link:

The Duck was once very busy. "Mayor Dabbs leaks phoney investigation against 2 employees" read one headline of yours.  Of course, that turned out to be a real investigation with a real arrest warrant.  Then there was "Bryant Alderman speaks TRUTH about Bryant and Mayor Dabbs on Todays THV @ 10pm" (which turned out to all be lies.)  

The ones that caught my eye, though, were "Political Powers do battle Ward 2 in Bryant" attacking Chris Tipton and begging for votes for the constantly defeated Ed Collins, and "Ed Collins headlines on Alderman Race," another Tipton hit piece suggesting that Collins is a paragon of virtue and service and that Chris Tipton is a hack who doesn't look out for anyone but himself.  Collins, Collins, Collins, Collins.

You've probably said too much, Duck.  At the very least, if you aren't him, you are sympathetic with a man who sat on the Council and sued his own city for megabucks, while trying to remove one of its better aldermen.  Not much of a recommendation for you either way.  But you know what?  It doesn't matter who you are anymore than it matters who I am.

I want you spewing your nonsense here.  You provide much needed contrast when I post the truth.  That way people can see the differences between the truth and the lies in an illuminating way.  The public is catching on, Duck.  Keep talking.  Help them along.  I'll do the same.

Shadow, first of all, I am not starting blog posts nor writing columns.  There are people out there who are upset at this yet dont even know what was said.  

What has happened to most of Linda Steele's posts?  The form of 1st amendment rights you cry about has been denied to Linda Steele because her responses to many blogs here have been deleted, the same for myself and others. 

Comment by The Shadow on February 29, 2012 at 9:48am

Either one of these blogs could be #1....this one qualifies, but the one below is.

Thank you, Percy, for a much needed laugh.

I never doubted that you were there, Duck. But it does amuse me that you're still able to twist posting the truth and bringing three renegade aldermen to accountability into "bashing Bryant." You'll also notice that no one but you is saying it. Must be lonely to be you. But I guess you had to say something.
