Rep. Fritchey, great job on the blog. I wish more elected officials would do the same. I think the CNN link is broken.
Good for you, sir.
You need to learn how to link, dude.
FIREFOX is still way better than IE...
FireFox: The Browser for Smart, Good-Looking People(TM)
I read an entry by a blogger, not too long ago, which said that Firefox was not actually a safer browser itself, it just is safer for now, because there were fewer people using it... something that would apparently not be true, if that changes.I don't know whether or not his assertion is true. I am someone who typically does not like change... which may be why I'm still using Internet Explorer. (That, and I have a little bit of trouble with Firefox's interface... Though perhaps if I were to use it more, that wouldn't be the case.)It's neat that a state representative now has a weblog... As I just said in my comment at Mr. Miller's, it will be interesting to see if other state legislators do the same.Keep up the good work!
You are an embarrassment to Lincoln Park. I can't wait until a Republican takes you out.And we both know, that that is just around the corner. You better protect your vote, buddy.
I predict this will fail spectacularly. This site will be a desert in 8 months. I can't see that moron Fritchey keeping up with daily blogging. Where can I place a bet?
Anon 1:38 & 1:40(who are likely one and the same) are, to say the least, misguided.
ok john, question:What's your reaction to the Speaker and Sen. Jones' strong show of support for the governor's re-election bid announced yesterday?Do you think this elminates the possibility of a challenge? How do you think this affects the overall dynamic of the gov. race? Some are saying this ends any chance of a GOP victory.
To 1:38 actually, I do pretty well with Republican voters in my district. I think that most of my contituents are smart enough to look beyond party labels and to look at issue positions. This is especially when you have a lot of pro-choice Republicans, and a lot of Democrats who are actually concerned about fiscally responsible government. That being said, should the time come that I get beat. so be it. That is how the process is supposed to work. I've had the opportunity to do this for nine years now and it's been an honor.
To 1:40, I never said that this will be a daily venture. I will try my best to stay current and to offer insights when and where I can.I am at a loss, although not altogether surprised, that people have to go out of there way to rip on my trying to do something that is a negative for nobody, and should be viewed as a net positive.
Rep. Fitchey - I hope in time, the anonymous who are trying to bash you decide it'snot so fun and leave you alone. You're stepping into territory that most legislators won't, and people are going to test you.Best of luck in your efforts here. I'm not in your district but plan to check this out, as I would like to see more of your fellow rep's get involved. From the cornfields west of Chicago and thankfully not in the sprawl yet....
Thanks Tessa, I'll tolerate it for a while but if need be I'll do away with anonymous posts and figure it out from there. I expected it to a point, but hopefully a few won't ruin it for the rest. We'll see.
And to think I moved out of your district...thank God for Chicago, and its elected officials.
please disregard the ridiculous anon poster. keep up the good work...
