The reporting the Pilot & Today has done on the School Board demonstrates the value of press freedom. The press is supposed to check the excesses of government. And those who would govern by secret meetings and secret emails are in severe need of checking. (This will probably irritate a lot of people who think we have freedom of the press in order to find out if Britney Spears wears panties.) And lest the SP&T should dislocate a shoulder trying to pat itself on the back...Where were you two or three years ago when the current situation had just begun to fester?

I can only hope they did not have access to this information two years ago or we could have saved ourselves the cost of a recall election...

The publication of the Emails simply confirmed in black and white what so many of us had already witnessed in the distorted motivations of his personality.

A recall is absolutely worth the money!

Once, what is the purpose to skewering the results. I actually prefer to know accurate results, but have fun playing your games.

The paper clearly did the right thing in publishing the emails. The real question is, what other and more recent emails did he send that we have not seen? Amazing, I am sure!

Kingsride- it's to show that it can be done and I know for a fact I'm not the only one. I'm just the only one who'll admit it.

kielbasa-- How do you know that more than your first vote was counted? I am sure that if you are some kind of hacker wizard you can defeat virtually any system, but happily cheats like yourself are a very small minority. Are you voting yes or no?

You're doing great Matt! I didn't vote in the last poll so that would have been five for Dr. D. Almost everyone I know thinks the Pilot was wrong to print the e-mails but they never read this stuff and they never vote.

"Almost everyone I know thinks the Pilot was wrong to print the e-mails but they never read this stuff and they never vote"

I remember thinking that Reagan could never be elected since I did not know a single person that was going to vote for him. He won by the largest margin in history.
