Where did you get Pete Aleshire? What a wonderfully written column on our two mayoral candidates. I digress from who I like, to say that Pete wrote two, very clear, structurally flowing articles on the passions and lives of our two candidates. It doesn't change my preferences, but it goes a long way to talk about the individuals. These stories were like artistically rendered black and white photographs, that only the really good photographers produce any more. I'd say that Pete won't be with you long, except that the drivel you get in metro newspapers wouldn't tolerate an article of this length and depth, except maybe in the Christian Science Monitor or New York Times. I thought it brought out important, core essences about both candidates. Congrats to Pete.
