Free Speech 2/23/11

Way of the future Have any state or local surveys been given asking what the “people” really think about this issue? I don’t know much about a high-speed rail system because I’ve never ridden on high-speed trains. (For instance, would you travel at the speed of business, and is that dial-up or 4G?) I have […]

Many Thanks Kathleen, Hi, thanks so much for the kind words you wrote about me in the article about Wednesdays at Blind Bob’s. I truly appreciate how you saw that I started back in 1997 and built up club singers. You are a Dayton gem!

Free Speech 2/23/11

Get the facts straight Hi Mark [Luedtke], I am writing in regard to your column in the Debate Forum section of the Dayton City Paper regarding high-speed rail, specifically your comment that “Nothing is stopping George Soros, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates from putting together a high-speed rail company risking their own money…” Perhaps you were […]

Could This Be Another Racially Motivated Cover-Up? Recently there was a car crash on the west side of Dayton and an innocent man was killed. I believe this man was an African American. The police chief of the City of Dayton personally gave a televised interview to give a detailed account of this car crash. The actual officers […]

President Obama Doubles Down on High-Speed Rail Vice President Joe Biden announced last week that President Barack Obama will ask Congress to approve a six-year, $53 billion program for construction of a national high-speed and intercity rail network, which he envisions will “jump-start job creation.” Biden stated during the announcement that there is a pressing […]

Obama Plays Railroad Tycoon with Our Tax Dollars By Mark Luedtke I loved electric trains when I was a kid. My first model train was a classic “O” gauge model I got for Christmas. You could put drops in the smokestack and it would smoke as it chugged around the tracks. My family used to […]

Correction

The ‘Real’ Black Swan issue correction In last week’s edition of the Dayton City Paper [2/9/2011], we regretfully failed to include a photography credit and a model credit in our cover story, “Mated for Life” and for our cover image, titled “The ‘Real’ Black Swans.” The photographer for the cover image was Dayton-area photographer Kidtee […]

Free Speech Letter 2/16/11

It’s tasteless, stupid Mark Luedtke, I might not necessarily be a fan of Mayor Leitzell or of Governor Kasich, but the use of your last feature article, “It’s the Economy, Stupid!” to take pot shots at both of them was cheap, classless, petty and juvenile. At least you didn’t call them RINOs in print, though. […]

Free Speech Letter 2/16/11

Luedtke’s analysis off point Reading Mark Luedtke’s recent article in the Dayton City Paper analyzing the reason for Dayton’s economic decline, the first word that came to my mind was “Reaganesque.” Since Mr. Luedtke and his fellow conservatives/libertarians seem to regard Ronald Reagan in much the same way that Scientologists regard L. Ron Hubbard, he […]
