City responds to Jones again

As Matt Stiles notes, the city has filed its response (PDF) to Ray Jones’ appeal to the Supreme Court to get on the ballot for the May 12 special election. I don’t know if the Supremes will act as quickly as the 14th Court of Appeals did, but they’d better do something soon or the question will be moot. Early voting begins April 30, and the ballot has to be printed and certified before then. I’d say if the matter isn’t settled by the end of next week, it may not matter what the Court does. We’ll see.

    I hope you don’t mind an off-topic comment, but I think this is important: There is a great post on The Carpetbagger Report from a few days ago about the mainstream media’s (specifically Time magazine’s) ignoring the prosecutor purge scandal.

    What explains the failure of the mainstream media to cover the purge scandal for so long, and so many other scandals? Do you think somebody just set up newspaper editors to cheat on their wives, and threatened to tell if the editors wouldn’t play ball when they come back some day and ask for something?

    It wouldn’t be that hard to do, when you think about it. People wouldn’t talk about it.
