Yesterday while in Sandusky, we stopped at the Stillwaters Coffee Cafe. If you want, there is a table where you can write stuff on with a black magic marker. I wrote: Vote “average Joe” Schriner for president. Then smiled. While Hillary, Rudy, Barrack… are designing multi-million dollar TV adds, I’m writing on a table in Sandusky. And such is the lot of an independent presidential candidate who’s not getting, oh, as many donations. (Hint to all my constituents.)… Today we drove to Whitehouse, Ohio (pop. 7,000), to do a whistle-stop there. A reporter from Channel 11 News asked me about the campaign. I said as much as many people would think Whitehouse, Ohio, is as close as I’m going to get to the Whitehouse this election — “I wouldn’t be too sure…” After the event I talked with John Wittes, a quite enthusiastic fellow who is running for mayor of Whitehouse this election. He said one of his issues is new zoning that requires every residence in town to have concrete or asphalt driveways. He said common sense says that salt and oil dripping from cars is filtered in a gravel driveway, whereas these substances on asphalt and concrete run off into storm sewers, then into the water ways… Afterward, our kids caught about six blue gill (and threw each one back — for the next kids) at a nearby pond. I took the fish of the hooks for them, then we drove to Waterville, Ohio, where I was interviewed by a reporter from the Mirror newspaper. I said I was vying to be the presidential candidate nominee for the Green Party because I believe the Green Party has the best position (conservation, alternative energy, decentralism…) for ending Global Warming — which seems a clear and present danger at this point.
