“average JoeOhio Tour” cont: I talked at a Catholic Church in Alliance, Ohio, this morning. Fr. Mike here introduced me by saying he’d seen the Channel 5 News spot the other night, and hoped I’d do well. “And then, well, here you are,” he smiled… A story in the Canton newspaper appeared about our stop in Massilon the day before. The tag line read: Hillary? Rudy? Fuggettaboutem! The headline then read: “Average Joe Wants Your Vote” I liked that. And although my spell check is telling me ‘fuggettaboutem’ is not a word — it is in Cleveland… We did a whistle-stop in Alliance, Ohio, today. A reporter fromt he Alliance newspaper asked what was driving me. I said “we used to be concerned about our kids doing OK in English Class. But now we’re more concerned about them being shot to death in English Class.” A news team form Channel 19 out of Cleveland drove an hour and a half to film the whistle-stop event in Alliance. The reporter asked me what I thought was the most significant current issue. I said I thought global warming was. She immediately leaned in and said: “But Joe, were in a war!” I said if there was no world left, being in a war (one way or the other) would be a mute point… We then headed on to Warren, Ohio.
