Rev. Whalum appreciates our coverage of his campaign

Just got this in email from him:

Yo, I appreciate your kind treatment of my infant candidacy on your blog. Just wanted you to know we’re on the way, and when we get there (full fledge on the ‘net) we’re gonna blow it up! It’s still VERY early…at least among those FEW of us who have significant name recognition among the voters who will actually DECIDE who the next Mayor of Memphis will be ;-)

In the meantime, I thought you might want to share this with your readers. If they’re interested in context concerning my church marquees, they might want to actually do a search of the Bible for the word, “ass” to see if it’s really in there. The marquee to which you refer was drawn from an actual quote in Matthew 21. Thanks again for your equitable treatment.

Kenneth T. Whalum, Jr.

This is going to be fun, I can tell already.

Good, quote Machiavelli. Once again, you're indicating how much you actually belive that ANYTHING goes so long as your cause is advanced. How many people are you willing to subsequently--again, extending your logic--execute if they reach alternative conclusions based upon their EXPERIENCE and examination of evidence? How many people are you willing, short of kiling them, are you willing to send to the American equivalent of Siberia? If, in fact, you believe in "justice," "inclusion" and "tolerance," how can you advocate any position that excludes anyone on the basis of their thinking? Are you objective in your admitted subjectivity?
