Ohio -- The New Texas



Connie Schultz
Last week, bartender Keleigh Rae Bowling had to interrupt a drunken couple having sex on the Skee-Ball table where she works.
"Everybody can see you," she told them calmly but in a voice that made clear who was in charge. "You're going to have to leave."

So they did.
After they trashed one of the bar's bathrooms.

An Honest Politician


To whom it may concern,

The 2012 election is on it's way and all political pundits are beginning to question who the Republican Nominee will be. Most agree that the candidates that have declared are not exactly desirable and would have difficulty winning in the overall election. The healthcare plan of Massachusetts is considered to be Romney's albatross. The longevity of Hayley Barbour's time in Washington according to some will be his downfall as well. One candidate however would put up a good fight and if elected would have the experience needed to address the issues that America faces today. That candidate is Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana. Governor Daniels has experience, having served in two presidential administrations: The Reagan and The Bush Administrations. He also has the business experience needed to truly understand the economy, having served in a top position at the pharmaceutical company, Eli Lilly and Company. To top it all off, his tenure as Governor has been extremely successful. According to a poll taken earier this year, Mitch Daniels approval rating was at 75 percent. He, in his time as Governor, has enacted a conservative healthcare reform, education reform, prison reform along with many other initiatives. The irony though is despite the fact that Governor Daniels is so suited to be President, he has shown reluctance to run for the office. In order to encourage him into the race, a nets-root organization called, The Students for Daniels Draft Initiative has grown throughout the country. The organization started off in Yale University and now has over 50 chapters in colleges throughout the nation. As a recent Paramus High School graduate and Paramus resident,  I urge all of those who are dissatisfied with current politics to look into Governor Daniels record. If you see, what I see, I ask that you visit the Students for Daniels site and put your name in for the petition asking him to run. The country is facing many issues, economically and abroad and in my opinion, Governor Daniels might just be the man to fix them. 

Sincerely, 

Shawn Stern

Pennsylvania State Chairman

Students for Daniels Draft Initiative
