Seven bite-size Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting to see what trick red-light cameras will perform next:
Not that I don't believe Mr. Telb, but many a leader has taken a fall for the unauthorized actions of their subordinates.
Could it be that he will "pull a Sandy Isenberg" on the road to re-election?
(In 2002, you'll recall, Ms. Isenberg seemed unbeatable in her re-election bid for Lucas County commissioner. But after she made some much-publicized stumbles, the original challenger, Dock Treece, bowed out of the race and in came Maggie Thurber, the eventual winner.)
Before this incident, Mr. Telb also seemed unbeatable. Now, his opponents -- Oregon Police Chief Tom Gulch and Danny Contreras, a former member of the Lucas County sheriff's office -- have found a door ajar.
OK, now I understand why some people have such a visceral dislike of the holier-than-thou wing of the Republican Party.

Factor in the $821 million capital improvements program, which will allow for dozens of new schools to be built over the next decade, and TPS appears ready for takeoff. Parents permitting, of course.
Mike was miffed that Mr. Bush didn't make the equivalent of a whistle-stop in Fostoria, where he and his family spent nearly two hours waiting in vain. (They left at 5 p.m. to attend a worship service.) "He doesn't have time to even get off the bus to wave and say thanks for coming out?"
Two days later, Mike provided an update: "I got home from school today, and the answering machine had a taped message from George reminding me to vote and offer my support. Guess he felt bad for not being able to stop on his way through the county."
