If we reinstate the AH debacle we should make it a package deal with other relics of the past such a dueling, stoning and debtors prison. In years past an AH button on the lapel was a must for those aspiring political office. I stood through it all warning of the folly. On the other hand if the Pilot promotes this idea maybe the losers in the transaction should take the New Belgium approach and consider action.

The boycott tactic has long been a mainstay for those on the left looking to silence free speech. If they can identify a political donor's list they move punish the contributors and dry up funds for opposition candidates. The Craig situation reverses the roles and this could have widespread repercussions. I like it!!

This community will spend every dime that it can get it's hands on. Things are already pretty good, we need to take our foot off the throttle and not attempt to fulfill every wannabee visionaries fantasy and ego trip.

Years ago these blogs were dominated by those of Dan's ilk and we also had Iron Horse type fiascos to complete the picture. Conservative ideas now serve as a check against such rampant idealism in addition to the track history of such endeavors.
