You ever see professional wrestling? You ever see two wrestlers who fight all the time? Let's call them Farmer Destruction and Bar Stool Eddie. Suddenly, with the sweat of battle glistening off of each other, they realize that they share a common enemy and share a knowing look of purpose. So they join forces to attack Dr. Fist and his henchman, Knuckles. Ever see something like that? Anyway, this is kind of like that ... in that it is rare, and in no other way.
Dicklich, a former state senator and current lobbyist/government liaison type replied last Sunday in both papers. He said he's not a "good ol' boy" he's just very experienced. Which is true. He's done a lot of stuff in politics and lobbying. He doesn't think its a conflict of interest to serve on a public body that overseas electrical utilities while lobbying for an electric company. OK, don't get mired in the details because here's the good part. Dicklich challenged both editors to settle this the way we Rangers settle such things ... in a publicly televised cable access debate. Oh man, I bet they'd even adjust the tracking on the playback deck so people could actually watch that! I hope everyone sounds mumbly. That's the best part of cable access.
Anyway, Dicklich is waiting for a callback but I doubt he'll get one. He'll have to go on Monday Night Raw and call them out, me thinks.
