Mr. Edgerton Goes To Lexington



All of this controversy is related to Lexington City Council's proposal to ban Confederate flags from flying on city owned light poles. A federal judge has already smacked them (the city) down once in an earlier suit in 1993. In a rather transparent attempt to skirt the court order, they are using lawyerly language and manuevering to make it appear this proposed ordinance has nothing to do with the Confederate flag.

Mr. Edgerton is a true patriot. I hope the city council listens to him. Off topic but interesting. The TV news catch line is "on your side." I've noticed that in other cities as well. What does it mean for a TV station to be "on your side?" Does the news have a side? The weather? On my side against whom? Probably just another focus-group tested tag line, essentially meaningless.

Chaps - these media folks come up with some pretty silly slogans. Another popular one is "making a difference." Our local news stations uses that one. What's that supposed to mean? Stalin made a difference. Please, just report the news and leave the advocacy to someone else.
