Thanks for sharing this article Earl.

Back in 2008, before the primaries here in Maine, my oldest son and I were heading up the
Bangor, maine HQ for Ron Paul. There were 3 in Maine.

Tony C came to our office and interviewed me about Ron and campaign etc. He is a little guy and super nice. The interview made it to the 6:00 newscast the next night.

I saw this article on the front page of Yahoo news and it made me laugh and made me glad and made me wonder too. Since what is said is about the higher ups and the political motivation behind it, I wondered if he was checking Ron and finding out stuff and what was not being reported etc. - and maybe he came across Ben Swann later on in his travels.

I am going to contact him.

Ron Paul is My President

I wouldn't be surprised

If he learned anything from your interview, it must have had an impact on him, having to report politically biased stories.

Who is John Galt?

Good luck

Well, "good luck" to them, in this "economy".

They better have some savings.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
