Adult reportedly tries to board school bus


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalterl'cflondancom

Law enforcement officers from
Jackson and Bay counties, the
Florida Highway Patrol and the
Florida Department of Correc-
tions assisted Calhoun County
early Wednesday morning in a


search of areas near where the
three county lines meet after
Calhoun County received calls
that someone was firing shots at
passing vehicles in the vicinity.
Around the same time, a Cal-
houn County school bus driver
reported that an adult had tried
to catch a ride on his bus near


County Road 167 and Betts
Road, which lies just north of the
Bay County line.
The driver, thinking at first that
the individual flagging him down
was a student, pulled over but
refused to let the man aboard af-
ter he realized the person was an
adult.


Calhoun County authorities
believed the two incidents may
be related and called for assis-
tance from the other agencies.
Jackson County officers sta-
tioned themselves near U.S. 231
in the vicinity of the bus incident,
and Bay County dispatched a
SWAT and K-9 team to the area.


The Department of Corrections
and the Florida Highway Patrol
also responded with help.
A K-9 team was tracking a
scent west across U.S. 231 and
south to Hightower Road when
an FHP officers saw a man in a

Traffic

stop leads

to drug

bust
From staff reports
An expired tag led to a.
traffic stop and the dis-
covery of a backpack con-
taining crack and powder
cocaine Tuesday night,
---- according to
a press re-
lease from
the Mari-
anna Police
Department.
Green-
Johnson Jr. wood resi-
dent Eli-
jah Lee Johnson Jr., 26, is
charged with possession
of a controlled substance
with intent to sell within
1,000 feet of a church.
According to the release,
officers with the MPD saw
a Kia passenger car with an
expired tag heading east
on Lafayette Street shortly
after 10:30 p.m. that eve-
ning and pulled the vehicle
over. Officers reported that
Johnson, the driver, "ap-
peared to be nervous and
was acting slightly suspi-
cious" when they spoke
with him at the stop.
They obtained his con-
sent to search the car, and
found a backpack inside
which contained just under
a gram of powder cocaine
and 2.7 grams of crack co-
caine, along with some
small plastic bags "which
are typically used with the
packaging of the drug for
sale," officials noted in the
press release.
Johnson was taken to the
Jackson Countyjail to await
his first court appearance
on the charge.

MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN FILE
In this Floridan photo, officials with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office and state attorney's office serve search warrants on May 23, 2009, for
alleged violations of state electronic gaming laws at Allied Veterans .42 at Oak Street Station Shopping Center in Marianna. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll
abruptly resigned Wednesday after being questioned about her ties to Internet cafes that authorities say are fronts for gambling.


57 charged in scandal


The Associated Press
ORLANDO Florida's lieu-
tenant governor resigned and
nearly 60 other people were
charged in a scandal involving a
purported veterans charity that
authorities said Wednesday was
a front for a $300 million gam-
bling operation.
The organization, Allied


Veterans of the World, runs
nearly 50 Internet parlors with
computerized slot machine-
style games, which are normal-
ly legal in Florida if most of the
proceeds go to charity.
But investigators said the
organization's executives gave
precious little to veterans and
lavished millions on them-
selves, spending it on boats,


Carroll


beachfront condos and Maser-
atis, Ferraris and Porsches.
Florida Attorney General Pam


Bondi called the
alleged scam "cal-
lous" and "despi-
cable" and said
it "insults every
American who
ever wore a mili-
tary uniform."
Lt. Gov. Jen-


nifer Carroll was not among
those charged but resigned a
day after she was questioned


by investigators.
The public relations firm she
co-owned, 3 N&JC, did work
for St. Augustine-based Allied
Veterans. A Navy veteran who
served in the Gulf War, Carroll
also appeared in a TV ad in 2011
promoting the organization's
work on behalf of veterans and
their families.
Authorities refused to dis-
cuss any ties between the 53-
year-old Republican and the

Graceville Correctional


Facility to host tours

There's a mural in the visitor's
center at Graceville Correctional
Facility, a room where children
go to visit their fathers who are incar-
cerated in the prison.
The brightly colored scene depicts
almost every legendary cartoon char-
acter on record, along with a bright
orange sun with a smiling face and a
friendly looking blue crescent moon.
. In the lower right comer there's a
block of color with numbers run-
ning up the side, a ruler-like element
that kids can use to measure how tall
they've grown between visits to see

their dads.
The mural wasn't put together by
a professional artist that the prison
hired to brighten things up, but by an
inmate, or perhaps more than one
helped out. There's a peaceful sunset
mural on another wall, another piece
of work created by a prisoner. Such
works of art are scattered throughout
the prison.
The fact that the inmates' talents are
being put to use in this way is symbolic
of the prison's continuing mission to
draw out the good inside people who
find themselves on the wrong side of
those prison bars and of the larger

Woman's Club


begins arts and


crafts workshops


Special to the Floridan

On Feb. 25, the Marianna
Woman's Club held the
first in a series of arts and
crafts workshops. Wreath
making was the featured
skill, and 10 women at-
tended to create very
beautiful spring and Easter
wreaths.
The club had Michael
Smith, owner of Artistic
Designs Floral Shop, at-
tend the meeting and dem-
onstrate how to transform
grapevine wreaths and
wire forms into beautiful
displays for the spring sea-
son. Smith brought many
items to use in decorat-
ing wreaths, from brightly
colored ribbons and mesh
to whimsical accents like
butterflies, colored eggs,
bird nests and stuffed
animals.
With the assistance and
creativity of Smith, all in


attendance went home
with a project to be proud
of.
Everyone is invited to at-
tend the workshop series
which will feature a differ-
ent project each month.
You do not have to be a
Woman's Club member
to attend. The meetings
will be held at 10 a.m. on
the last Monday of each
month through May at the
Marianna Woman's Club
house located at the cor-
ner of Caledonia and Clin-
ton Streets.
There is a $2 fee to cover
expenses for the meeting
and a list of needed sup-
plies will be available in
advance and may be ob-
tained from Jane Powell,
Woman's Club arts depart-
ment chair.
SFor information about
these workshops, call Jane

5-organ transplant patient gives birth


The Associated Press

MIAMI A woman whose doc-
tors believe is the first known case
of a five-organ transplant patient to
deliver a baby said Wednesday her
joy is hard to describe after the girl's
birth.
Fatema Al Ansari, 26, was given a
Snew liver, pancreas, stomach and
small and large intestine at a Miami
hospital in 2007. Five years after that
surgery, she gave birth Feb. 26 at the
same hospital, Jackson Memorial,
with her transplant doctor on a team
closely watching.
"It's a hard feeling to express," the
new mother said of the cesarean
birth of a healthy girl, who weighed
4 pounds 7 ounces upon arrival. "It's
the-best feeling in the world," she
said in Arabic, her words translated
by an interpreter.
The infant, Alkadi Alhayal, snug-
gling in a white blanket and white
.cap, slept quietly in her mother's
arms while her parents addressed
reporters' questions with her doc-
tors Wednesday at the hospital.
The woman, who lives in Qatar and
plans to return home in the coming


weeks, was there at 19 when she was
diagnosed with a blood clot in a ma-
jor vein to the intestine requiring
transplant surgery.
Just over 600 five-organ transplants
have been recorded as of 2011, ac-
cording to the latest figures avail-
able from the Intestinal Transplant
Association.
The most recent annual report by
the National Transplantation Preg-
nancy Registry also indicates she is
the first reported case of a five-organ
transplant patient in the world to
give birth.
Dr. Shalih Y. Yasin, the woman's
obstetrician, said there have been
some cases in Europe of births by
transplant patients who had two or-
gans "but not five."
"We have searched all medical
literature all over the world for any
pregnancy that had five multi-trans-
plants and this is the first case to our
knowledge," said the doctor with the
University of Miami Health System.
Yasin said an adult with five trans-
planted organs healthy enough to
even consider having a child "is a
miracle by itself."
Al Ansari was forced to terminate


a previous pregnancy early on after
her diagnosis, which made her think
she would never be able to get preg-
nant. She said her husband, Khalifa
Alhayal, gave her hope to realize her
dream and they became parents
through in vitro fertilization.
Her recent pregnancy was consid-
ered high-risk and she was moni-
tored closely by her team of trans-
plant doctors and gynecologists in
Miami.
She did not have an infection dur-
ing her pregnancy, as her doctors
had prepared for, but she faced mi-
nor complications including the flu,
some bleeding and physical discom-
fort from her growing baby.
"It's not an easy pregnancy to go
through," Yasin said. "One has to
make sure the transplant organ is
not rejected, that the medications
are safe to the baby."
Experts noted the uniqueness of
the case.
"While we have a good success rate
to get patients to survive and back to
normal, almost none of them go on
to bear children," said Dr. Thomas
Fishbein, Executive Director at the
Georgetown Transplant Institute.

Special to the Floridan

Allen Ward, a lifelong Jackson
County resident and Marianna na-
tive, announced his candidacy for
city commissioner for District 3.
Ward is currently the maintenance

16A THURSDAY. MARCH 14,2013


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Pope Francis speaks from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica atthe Vatican on Wednesday.
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, who chose the name of Francis, is the 266th pontiff of the Roman
Catholic Church.


Argentine Bergoglio



elected Pope Francis


The Associated Press


VATICAN CITY Jorge
Bergoglio of Argentina was
elected pope Wednesday,
becoming the first pontiff
from the Americas and the
first from outside Europe
in more than a millen-
nium. He chose the name
Francis, associating him-
self with the humble 13th-
century Italian preacher
who lived a life of poverty.
Looking stunned, Francis
shylywaved to the crowd of
more than 100,000 people
who packed a rain-soaked
St. Peter's Square for the
announcement, marveling
that the cardinals needed
to look to "the end of the
earth" to find a bishop of
Rome.
SIn choosing a 76-year-
old pope, the cardinals
clearly decided that they
didn't need a vigorous,
young pope who would
reign for decades but rath-
er a seasoned, popular and
humble pastor who would
draw followers to the faith
and help rebuild a church
stained by scandal.
The cardinal electors
overcame deep divisions
about the future of the
church to select the 266th
pontiff in a remarkably
fast, five-ballot conclave.
Francis asked for prayers
for himself, and for retired
Pope Benedict XVI, whose
stunningresignationpaved
the way for the conclave
that brought the. first Je-
suit to the papacy. Francis
also spoke by phone with
Benedict after his election
7and plans to see him in the
coming days, the Vatican
said.
S"Brothers and sisters,
good evening," Francis
said to wild cheers in his
first public remarks as
pontiff from the loggia of
St. Peter's Basilica.
"You know that the work
of the conclave is to give a
bishop to Rome. It seems
as if my brother cardinals
went to find him from the
end of the earth, but here


we are. Thank you for the
welcome," he said.
In one of his first acts as
pope, Francis on Thurs-
day morning planned to
visit Benedict at the papal
retreat in Castel Gandolfo
south of Rome.
American Cardinal Timo-
thy Dolan said Wednesday
night at the North Ameri-
can College, the U.S. semi-
nary in Rome, that Francis
told fellow cardinals fol-
lowing the conclave that
made him pope: "Tomor-
row morning, I'm going to
visit Benedict."
The visit was significant
because Benedict's resig-
nation has raised concerns
about potential power
conflicts emerging from
the peculiar situation of
having a reigning pope
and a retired one.
No such worries troubled
people in Francis' home
continent.
Latin Americans burst
into tears and jubilation
at news that the region,
which counts 40 percent
of the world's Catholics, fi-
nally had a pope to call its
own.
"It's a huge gift for all of
Latin America. We waited
20 centuries. It was worth
the wait," said Jose Anto-
nio Cruz, a Franciscan friar
at the St. Francis of Assisi
church in the colonial Old
San Juan district in Puerto
Rico.
Bergoglio had report-
edly finished second in
the 2005 conclave that
produced Benedict who
last monthbecame the first
pope to resign in 600 years.

*FLORIDAN


The speed with which he
was elected pope this time
around.indicates that -
even though he is 76 and
has slowed down from the
effects of having a lung re-
moved as a teenager he
still had the trust of cardi-
nals to do the job.
After announcing "Habe-
mus Papam" "We have
a pope!" a cardinal
standing on the balcony
of St. Peter's Basilica on
Wednesday revealed the
identity of the new pontiff,
using his Latin name, and
announced he would be
called Francis.
The longtime archbishop
of Buenos Aires is the son
of middle-class Italian im-
migrants and is known as
a humble man who denied
himself the luxuries that
previous Buenos Aires car-
dinals enjoyed.
He often rode the bus
to work, cooked his own
meals and.regularly visited
the slums that ring Argen-
tina's capital. He consid-
ers social outreach, rather
than doctrinal battles, to
be the essential business
of the church.
Catholics are stillbuzzing
over his speech last year
accusing fellow church
officials of hypocrisy for
forgetting that Jesus Christ
bathed lepers and ate with
prostitutes.
In a lifetime of teaching
and leading priests in Lat-
in America, which has the
largest share of the world's
Catholics, Bergoglio has
also shown a keen political
sensibility and self-effac-
ing humility.

5-4.
But Cotondale added an insur-
ance run in the sixth and Obert
held the Lady Wildcats down for
the final two innings.
"Kelsie threw well for us," Lady
Hornets coach Mike Melvin said.
"She had good movement on her
pitches, which will be really im-
portant with the big game we've
got coming uLip."
Conondale (5-31 will travel to
Sneads tonight to take on the
Lady Pirates in a rematch of a
Feb. 28 game at CHS that Sneads
won 15-0 in five innings.
The Lady Horners were out-
played in all facets of the game in
the first matchup and will need a
supreme performance to have a


chance at evening the season se-
nes with a Sneads team coming
off of a big road win over Chipley
on Tuesday.
"We need Kelsie pitching well
and our bars have got to come
back to life," Melvin said. "We
need to pla. seven innings of
solid softball. We can't have one
good inning and then just hope
to hang on. (in the last game),
Sneads did a good job of hitting,
but we didn't pitch real well. We
had too many w alks and hit bat-
ters, and when they had people in
scoring position they got hits and
turned it into a merry-go-round.
"We can't let them get momen-
rum the whole game. We've got to
stay in there the whole time be-
cause they've got a good squad."
The game is scheduled for 6
p.m.


The Cortondale Lady Hor-
nets tallied their fifth win of the
season Tuesday night at home,
edging by the Bethlehem Lady
Wildcats 6-4 thanks to a domi-
nant pitching performance from
Kelsie Obert.
The senior Obert struck out 14
batters and allowed just four hits
and two walks in seven innings,
while Kayla Latham and Kourt-
nie Richardson sparked the of-
fense by combining for four hits

Dew Anni I'm in a quandary about my
little girl. She believes her mom's boy-
friend is her father, but a DNA test proves
that I am her true biological father. The
boyfriend does not know. My daughter is
now 6 years old, and I want to tell her the
truth. Will that harm her?
PERPLEXED IN POUGHKEEPSIE

Dw Pap d: If the little girl has a
solid and loving relationship with the
man she believes is her father, your sud-
den assumption of that role might be
traumatizing for her. You also will be re-
sponsible for child support. However, it's
only a matter of time before the current
boyfriend and your child learn the truth.
It is better if this information comes
from her mother in a gentle way, so
mom's support is crucial Ask the mother
to come with you for mediation to see
whether you can work on being a part
of the child's life. You can discuss it with
your clergyperson or a trained counselor,
or contact your local family court for a
referral to a family mediation program.


Dear Annie: What do you do when your
husband.controls the money? I'm 68
years old, and for the past 10 years, "Rob-
ert" has paid the'bills and has hidden the
checkbook from me.
Robert told me I need to pay my own
bills. He has a retirement income, and.
he still works. I receive Social Security. I
have always been thrifty, and although
I have a debit card, I am only allowed to
use it for necessary things like groceries.
I pay for my clothes, haircuts, etc. Robert
does not see how his controlling behav-
ior affects me. Is coping all I.can do?
CRAVING TRUST

Dear Craving: Controlling the finances
can be a form of abuse. Hiding the
checkbook also keeps you in the dark
about where Robert's money is go-
ing. There is no reason to tolerate such
behavior. You are a full partner in this
marriage and are definitely entitled to
see the checkbook, the bank statements
and any other financial business that
concerns you.

Bridge

The most important function of a bridge en-
try is to help the player obtain the maximum
number of tricks. In this deal, how would you
program a computer (South) to make three no-
trump? West leads a low heart. East wins with
his queen and returns the suit to dummy's ace.
One thing should be immediately apparent to
South: If he loses the lead before he has taken
nine tricks, he will go down. The defenders will
cash too many heart tricks.
Next, declarer should realize that he needs
the club finesse to succeed. And if it is winning,
he can collect nine tricks via one spade, one
heart, three diamonds and four clubs.
The other hurdle is that the club finesse might
need to be taken three times. When this is the
case, first lead the lowest card that can take the
trick when the finesse is working. Here, South
should first run dummy's club nine. Then he
runs the queen. Next he plays a club to his jack.
And lastly he claims.
Note that if declarer starts with dummy's club
queen, East defeats the contract by not cover-
ing. Then, if South plays his two, he will have
to take the next club trick in his hand. Or, if de-
clarer unblocks the 10 or jack under the queen,
East can cover the nine to leave his eight beat-
ing South's two on the fourth round of the suit

"It is shameful that Allied

guise of charitable organi-

order to lend credibility to
this $300 million gambling
scheme," she said.
SA telephone number list-

disconnected. Emails to
an address on the group's
website were not returned.
The address Allied listed as

quest to help the inmates
find hope and to make
themselves fit for life on
the outside.
Those murals were two
of the first things that
dozens of community
and agency visitors saw
when they went to GCF
on Wednesday by invita-
tion. They were there to
have lunch and hear brief
presentations in one of
the quarterly community
outreach sessions at the
institution.
The meeting was made
a bit more special by the
fact that it fell within the
30th anniversary of the
private company that
runs the prison, Cor-
rections Corporation of
America. CCA took over
management of the local
prison three years ago
this August and employs
roughly 315 people in
and around Graceville.
GCF can house 1,884 in-
mates and typically stays
at capacity.
At the Wednesday
session, the company
highlighted its commit-
ment to prepare inmates
for re-entry into society.
Welcomed to the event
byWarden Jason Ellis,
roughly 50 guests attend-
ed and heard more about
those re-entry efforts
from Learning and Devel-
opment Manager Angela
Geisinger. She referenced
a familiar adage. "Give a
man a fish and you feed
him for a day. Teach a
man to fish and you feed
him for a lifetime," she
quoted before talking
about the educational
and vocational programs
offered to every inmate
house at the prison, and
the spiritual assistance
provided by GCF and its.
partner volunteers in the
community.
"We are educating
the population daily,"
she said, referring to
high school equivalency
programs offered to non-
graduates, along with the
electrical wiring courses,
paint and design classes,
digital design programs
and courses designed to
give the inmate students
a working knowledge of
life-skills. They can sign
on for courses about bud-
geting money, keeping
financial records, writing
and logging checks, and
other things they'll need
to know how to do when
they get out of prison.
Even the lifers are offered
such courses, something
they can take part in as a


any vehicles.
No gun has been recov-
ered by investigators in
relation to the reports of
shooting, and no one has
come forward to say that
their vehicle was actually
shot, Calhoun County of-
ficials say, but the case
continues to be under
investigation.
Motorists had been
advised that morning to
avoid the search area or
to use extreme caution if
they had to travel in the
vicinity, and a roadblock
was temporarily set up
in the area of CR 167 and
Hwy. 231 near the Bay
County line.

selves and experience
positive change despite
their low prospects of
ever living as free men.
Four unit managers and
support staff are tasked
with creating and moni-
toring progress in specific
programs tailored to each
prisoner's needs.
"We are turning tax
consumers into tax pay-
ers through education
and programming," Geis-
inger commented in her
portion of the program.
Chaplain David Hen-
drix also spoke at the
gathering. Director of
the prison's Faithbased
Program, he spoke on the
benefits of Chaplaincy
programs in corrections.
He offered statewide
statistics to back up his
assertion that those pro-
grams make a difference.
"Inmates that participat-
ed in 10 or more chapel
programs per month are
26 percent less likely to
recommit," he said, and
offered other statistics
suggestive of positive
effects.
He also noted that
inmates involved in faith-
based programs are less
likely to receive disciplin-
ary reports. The faith-
and character-based
programs focus on areas
such as values, anger
management, family
and other relationships,
prayer and spiritual
development, parenting
skills and more.
Officer Sandra Harden
talked about the Auburn
dog program she coordi-
nates at GCE The security
dogs are provided by Au-
burn University and sent
to the prison for training
by inmates who also tend
to the animals. The eight
dogs now there are as-
signed to live in cells with
their inmate trainers.
Harden offered com-
ments from inmates who
have been assigned the
dogs, prisoners who say
the program has made
them more responsible,
more empathetic, more
patient, and better think-
ers. After successfully
completing their pro-
grams, the dogs are used
for the security of the na-
tion by working in major
airports, train stations
and bus terminals to
detect explosive devices.
Hardin also introduced
the crowd to Viper, a yel-
low lab currently enrolled
in the program.
Assistant Warden Gillis
concluded the program
and several guests then
took a tour of the facil-
ity, led by Ellis and other
staff.

If Denny Hamlin was looking for support in the Las
Vegas garage after being fined $25,000 for criticizing the
Gen-6 cars, he left mighty disappointed. In the military,
when you hear "I have your six," it means "I have your
back." Hamlin's "six" is exposed.
Here is a sampling of comments from drivers who were
asked about Hamlin's fine and his initial refusal to pay:
Dale Earnhardt Jr.: "I think we
were told a couple years ago
to just sort of watch all the
negative comments and
tones... I thought it
was clear to all of us
to be careful how we
said what was on our
mind."
Jeff Gordon: "I
think it's been an
interesting story
for somebody
to challenge that
authority. That is
fine, but at the end of
the day I know whose
sandbox I'm
playing in. I like
the sandbox."

Clint Bowyer: "At the end of the day, we're all in this

us. We've got a great thing going with this Gen-6 car."
Hamlin has elected to protest the penalty. The penalty
will likely be upheld in NASCAR's judicial system. Insiders
think the $25K will be quietly deducted from Hamlin's
winnings after a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in the
coming weeks.

AJ gets 'Smoke's' ride
Roger Penske offered Tony Stewart a ride for this
year's Indianapolis 500 back in December. Stewart
politely declined. Last week, AJ Allmendinger, who
drove Penske's No, 22 Cup Series Dodge in the
first half of the 2012 season, was given that
plum driving assignment.
Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR
in 2012 for failing a drug test, which forced
Penske to fire the driver. Allmendinger successfully
completed NASCAR's Road To Recovery program, was
reinstated and got a few Cup Series starts at season's
end with another team.
"For me it's amazing to go through the last year
of what happened, to get back to this point," said
Allmendinger, who started the 2012 racing season with a
Rolex 24 victory at Daytona. "For me to be able to run Indy
is amazing. Roger told me the first day when I signed with
him last year, 'Once you're in the family, you're always in the
family.'"
Looking for an Indy 500 dark horse? Look no further.

Lots of numbers in Vegas
If you are in Las Vegas, you have to run the numbers.
Every time the Cup Series races there, it produces a
basket of interesting number combinations. Matt
Kenseth won the race, which made the wheel
spin wildly.
The win was Kenseth's first at Joe Gibbs
Racing, 25th for his career and 50th for
Team Toyota, which started racing at
the marquee level in 2007. The most
surprising number of all? It was only
the fourth time in Cup Series history
(dating back to 1949) that a driver
won on his birthday.
Cale Yarborough did it
twice and Kyle Busch
won on his birthday
in 2009. The
number Kenseth
didn't like? He
turned 41 on
Sunday.

Daytona Beach News-Joumal/NIGEL COOK
Amazingly, Tony Stewart can teach Denny how
to just smile and roll with it.
Whatever happened to the
"whispered" fine?
Good question. A couple of years ago, it
came to light that NASCAR was "secretly" fining
drivers for various issues, including public
ridicule of the product fans see on the track. I
put "secretly" in quotes because, in a garage
populated by chatterboxes, nothing remains
secret for long. When the secret inevitably
-broke, NASCAR was ridiculed for it.
And now... ?
Now it looks like the way to do things.
When NASCAR's suits heard Denny Hamlin's
complaints about the Gen-6 cars, they had a
decision to make. They'd assumed everyone was
on board with the "Speak No Evil" agreement,
and Denny had to pay a price. Two years ago,
when the backroom fines went public, NASCAR
caught grief. So they went'public this time,
and it appeared a bit heavy-handed, petty and
lubricated with a pinch of paranoia. In other
words, they can't win.
Well, couldn't they just let a guy
speak his mind freely?
That might end up being the best answer.
And it would certainly be easier to police -
just turn your head. But we've seen enough
overachieving from Madtison Avenue and enough
bizarre (and, unfortunately, successful) spin
from Washington to know there's something to
be said for "controlling the message." But it sure
