Last fall I was working on an article about some local political shenanigans I thought were amusing but not very important. Then the Jetton arrest hit the news and that kind of made the local circus news seem unimportant and not even amusing anymore.
Those who know me know that I have often criticized Rod Jetton and that I have made no secret of my disagreement with Jetton’s activities in the political arena. It is true Jetton has done much for the area but it is also true Jetton has used his political pull to help himself and to help his political lackeys at the expense of the rest of us. That is in the past and I thought that with Jetton getting out of elected office that there would be some changes and that Jetton would be heard from less and less.
