You can find my latest story HERE

I got a voice mail this morning from an anonymous reader who seemed angry that my stories on this political development have appeared on page one. He pointed out that Andy Lenderman's story on the drought was way back in the local section. (Then the caller got all emotional, saying, "Who gives a POOP about Dendahl??? Who gives a POOP?")

I'm pretty sure it wasn't Andy who called.

A couple of points: Reporters don't decide what goes where in the paper. Now and then I've seen stories of mine on page one that probably wouldn't have been there on busier news days. And there have been a few times I've seen stories of mine back with the hog reports and truss ads I thought should have been on page on. Every day it's a crap shoot.

But more importantly, I think there are a lot of folks out there who do "give a POOP" about this political development. If nothing else, it's one of the most unusual political moves in this state in recent memory.

If you do give a POOP, follow the link. If not, then don't. Same for the link to the drought story.
