    I'll run some banners, signs and stickers for just the materials cost.

    where? I think Shaq is running down by me. Or at least says he's thinking about it.

    If being sheriff will give him more time to tell his stories then I'm all for him running for sheriff.

    I'm in. I'm afraid Grand Prairie isn't sufficiently North though.

    Run, Dog, Run!

    Judging merely by the common sense that Lawdog espouses in his blog, I think that his expertise is sorely needed as sheriff in Lower Bugscuffle or whatever the name of the place really is.

    Note: Common sense is really a rather rare commodity!:evil:

    Have him come run against Sheriff Baca in LA county CA. We'd welcome him here with open arms. Also we're ready for a change.

    I voted "yup," just because I want to see the inevitable stories that will result. I'll completely understand if it's not a realistic option, but it's really amusing to contemplate.

    I think its far too personal a decision to poll. The dog has a better grip on local issues, and his own desires than any of us here . I have no doubt he would be a fine sheriff should he choose to apply his talents to that course of action. I also have a gut feeling that he is far to smart to want the office .

    Who?

    I know who Law Dog is, but he hasn't actually posted on THR in almost 6 months. I miss his posts, and wish he participated more often--along with several other "OG" members that seem to have drifted off.

    I mentioned something like this about Tamara a while back, and somebody (with a name in bold letters) made a snarky comment about her blog and how if I really missed the posts I could go read the blog. So before any one tells me about Law Dog's blog (which I have read), let me say preemptively: That's not the point.

    Law Dog, Tamara and others add real value to THR and are part of the reason I joined and stayed. Reading their blogs is fine...but it doesn't add anything to THR. And I think that 'something' they added has been sorely missing lately. Maybe it's something about getting that user name in bold that just burns folks out.

    So, back on topic, NO I don't think Law Dog should run for Sheriff. I think he should get his hiney back to THR and get his post average up to 10 or 12 a month. Maybe he could bring some of the other "THR Plank Owners" back with him.

    Please.

    That would be sweet!
    However, is he seriously contemplating running?

    Good luck with that.

    DFW has a tripwire set up - he'll never make it south of Mansfield.

    I volunteer to run a diversion. Someone just needs to supply the pink gorilla suit.

    I'm SERIOUS. Couple a politcial campaign with The Blog, and he's either got a guaranteed writing career, or he's elected. It's win/win...

    Could you imagine Lawdog as your CLEO?

    Or consider an alternate scenario.

    Yes, but only if I get to be campaign manager.:D

    "Ummm, that's where the votes are?"

    As sheriff, the Dog would would have to be more discreet. And respectful. And sensitive to the other "authorities" (little emperors) in the County. So I vote "No".

    Besides, when would he ever have time to write?
