Walter Neary of Lakewood is still totally cool

If you live in Lakewood and ever have the chance to vote for Walter Neary, I'd suggest it. He turned on the comments on his blog, so you can chat with him if you want.

Here's his first post with comments enabled.

He also left this nice comment here earlier today:
Wow. You remember Cappy, the Capitol Lake monster. We had a lot of fun with that, although he/she never really succeeded as a tool of economic development. I'm not sure we ever did capture any tourists. Cappy was really meant to be an in-joke for people who have seen the lake drained. Really, I think newspapers need more personality if they want to survive.

We did see the Web page posted on several occult sites with Nessie, though, which I thought was a good early warning indicator of how gullible - or maybe the word is trusting - the Internet can be.

To be honest, I was waiting to turn on comments until I had more readers and then just sort of forgot about it. We have a couple people, one of them with a lengthy police record, who write A LOT - if you know what I mean - and I wanted to make sure others were there to put their comments in context.

People have not asked for comments, which might be a bad sign about reader interest. But what the heck. I'll turn 'em on later today and see what happens. You'll see a long screed I wrote last night after an odd council meeting so feel free to post later or to something more relevant to the spirit of Cappy.
So, to review: if you live in Lakewood, vote for Walter and at least chat with him on his nice blog.
