Truth be told


    You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
    We are about to find out just how many are being fooled in this coming election.
    Somehow, some people think that Randy Hall created the Ketchum Town Square. Where have they been?
    Some people think that taking credit makes them actually deserve it. Some people follow the money and consider it theirs if nobody knows the difference. Some people confuse power with leadership. Some people think that giving the people what they want is the only way to keep their job. Some people think that character is just a buzz word and doesn’t matter in politics. Some people think that a good idea is theirs unless proven otherwise. Some people think that three terms is a receipt for corruption.
    Some people think that I am going to vote for Nina Jonas—no fooling!
