Don't think aloud in cyberspace

John Petersen, of the blog Tredyffrin Township Political Notebook, did a little searching and somehow got his hands on a blog post that I wrote but ultimately decided not to publish.

I have no idea why he went the trouble. I do know we recently had a skirmish over a post I wrote commenting on his letter calling for Tredyffrin Supervisor Bill DeHaven not to seek reelection.

When I read Peterson's second response to this post (which was a bit more intense than his first response), I felt like I had to say something. While I was trying to decide what to say (trying, in this case, meant drafting a few versions of a blog post), I decided it would be better to say nothing at all.

Looks like I wasn't given that option. Against my will, my thoughts flew out into cyberspace.

Well, whatever. John, let's move on.

It was actually no trouble at all. In your blog, you linked back to my post. That showed up as a link in my blog. It is still there. The deal is, it went to a dead link. That is what tipped me off to your post. Once I had the URL to your blog post, I looked up the cached version in Google.

Total time spent...about 30 minutes to formulate the correct archive URL.

I think it is more of a matter of you not understanding how the technology works.. Hopefully, you have a better appreciation for that now!!

Agreed... lets move on...

John Petersen says he is an "independent voice". However it is clear he is out to get Paul Drucker, who beat him for a supervisor's seat in 2005. (Word is that he was HIGHLY upset over that loss.)

If Paul Drucker ever sent a registered letter to a campaign on the same day he told a reporter about it, he would be all over him. If Paul Drucker ever hired a Republican to run his campaign he would be a laughing stock. If Paul Drucker ever threw together a reform package at the last minute days after his opponent did, Petersen would be crushing him. Instead he gives Guy, the candidate who actually did all of those things, a pass every chance he gets. Mr "independent voice".

The fact is, Guy is losing according to his own internal polling. He is desperate, and it shows.
