Re: “We didn't endorse Warren

Just for the record -- yes, we did have some great conversations around the dinner table. From when I was a kid right up until her death. Ethics. Politics. Morals. Right and wrong, making anonymous rude comments. -- But particularly about the inappropriateness of saying something about somebody's Mother.

Re: “We didn't endorse Warren

note my words:
Courtesy. Ethics. My Mother taught me before you use someone's words, you ask. To blame me for her action is really disappointing. We should ask better of our elected officials. But then, in a day when school board members swear and city council members use the N word -- I guess everything goes, right? Who really cares if they don't?

Re: “We didn't endorse Warren

I guess this might be a silly distraction -- unless it happens to YOU.

In my case, it did. Ms. Warren used an old email of mine on a mail piece -- without the courtesy of asking me -- implying that I was endorsing her, which I did not. And, I was reminded of a lesson I learned at an early age.

I actually ran for office when I was about as old as she is. My wife dutifully screen printed a couple of hundred lawn signs which I decided to put all over the district -- without asking, thinking that this is what politics was about.

A wise person who had been elected to office several times called me and said, "Ken, I notice you have several lawn signs up places you probably didn't get permission for. I'm not saying you have to take them down because it is illegal. Nor am I saying that you take them down because it is unethical. But the way a candidate campaigns is a good indication of the type of elected official they will be after they win."

I took the signs down and apologized.
