I don’t mind that Bolinsky disparaged an opponent on the basis of appearance, or even that his wife feels she needs to walk up to his opponent (“Keep spreading lies”) to disparage the opponent. That is who Bolinsky and his wife are. What offends me is Bolinsky’s effort to blame a volunteer for a public misanthropic comment in his ad campaign and then distance himself from it. My first thought when hearing of this, was “the buck stops here”, thank you President Truman. And then to discover that Bolinsky actually used this quote in his “apology” is pathetic. Bolinsky allowed the comment to be disseminated as a misanthropist comment, and then he advised he has no responsibility for the dissemination of that thought. If the buck stops here, one should ask Bolinsky, if he has only just started to take responsibility for what his campaign says, who has been taking responsibility for how he decides to vote, who gives him information as his talking points etc.
I am so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. She was a good friend and often a sounding board for me during the years we shared walks, music, talks and good times. I cherish my memories and the relationship we developed. When I sing the songs we learned together I smile and remember how important she was to me.
My condolences to the Hough family. I was fortunate to have played football and baseball with Courtenay at Newtown. Simply put he was the best high school athlete I ever played with and a great guy as well. Rest In Peace Courtenay.
