YOU already know this, but if one of your uncouth compadres didn’t listen to the most recent episode of The Wheels Down Politics Show, they would not know that Omaha City Council member Aimee Melton shared some news.
Melton told show listeners that she is no longer on the Board of Directors of Nebraskans for the Death Penalty. She said that though she is still a strong supporter of the group, she felt that for her constituents, she still needs to give her full attention to her Council work.
For those other suckers who have not yet listened to the show, they can hear the whole thing, which includes a discussion with Melton and retired Judge Ronald E. Reagan. Judge Reagan is part of the new ‘Nebraskans for Public Safety” which opposes the Death Penalty and the petition to put the issue on the ballot.
(You will note and find that Reagan does not believe that voters have, or could obtain, all of the significant information to make an informed decision about this issue — but is still fine with other initiative petitions.)

It is always hilarious when Don “George Norris” Walton of the LJS writes in one sentence about the non-partisan legislature (“with a capital N and capital P”) and then in the next sentence goes into the intricacies of the Democrat and Republican members.
Today Walton talks about who Governor Pete Ricketts will appoint to replace Jeremy Nordquist — and asks if it will be a conservative Republican or a Latino Democrat.
(Someone explain to Don how Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz made it into office.)
Except that it wasn’t THIS (unnamed) blog, it was Watchdog — which isn’t a blog.
Because, of course, much like Voldemort and Sauron, one must never name other media outlets like Watchdog or Leavenworth St., lest you accidentally click them!
(And don’t think it wasn’t an intentional nose-thumbing to derisively call Watchdog a “blog”.)
And just to put a point on it, the OWH puts up a video about a Miami college student, who is originally from Omaha, and notes that she is an intern “at a local Omaha TV station“.
Because Warren-forbid that anyone acknowledge the name of said TV station! Why you might…turn the channel! Or click somewhere else!
(There is no other media in town! Nyah-nyah-nyah we are covering our ears and not listening!!!)
