Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. I am in Bluffton, Ohio today where I have cloistered myself in the Bluffton College Library and am e-mailing letters to the editor of every Ohio newspaper I can in support of, that’s right: my campaign. I have started each letter with: “With all the ‘Bush/Kerry’ focus on Op/Ed pages these days, sometimes people forget there are other presidential candidates out here. I am one…” Today I also got a call from a woman temporarily working in Ontario, Canada, who is a resident of Vermont. She said she was writing my name in on an absentee ballot and needed to know my vice-presidential candidate’s name for this particular form. I told her it was: Barb Marlinski, an “average Jane,” if you will, from Lakewood, New York. Barb, who is a Catholic, puts her faith first in her life. In addition, she is on the same page with us on all the issues. She is a wife, mother and a piano teacher. What’s more, she told me several years ago she mounted a drive to keep out a proposed “News Store” that was going to sell pornography in her small town of Lakewood, New York. She won. Barb is the type of unsung, “extra-mile” American who is so representative of what makes up the real moral fabric of our country.
