Who's asleep at the editorial wheel?

It's not posted online yet - but a Times-Standard letter-to-the-editor from Richard W. "R Trent" Salzman opining on 'honesty in politics is a bit much. How'd that get by you guys? And WHO wrote the title? Did you do that with a straight face?

Time for honesty in government - Richard W. Salzman/Letter-To-The-Editor/Times-Standard

Once again, the need for some institutional memory is startlingly clear.

Remember the ◼ "Web Of Lies"? Or did you excuse that away?

At least we know can assume he is using his own name this time:
"Though the Williams letters were signed "R. Trent Williams," e-mails sent from "Williams'" e-mail address appeared in inboxes as coming from "Rick William." Salzman's full name is Richard William Salzman.

Reached Tuesday {September 2005) morning, Salzman declined to comment on the matter any further. He said that he would not provide a list of false names he has used."

There's also a sudden spate of letters to the editor decrying 'big money' in politics.

What this means is - Salzman's faction is down and seeking to handicap 'the other side.'

Ken Miller's on the move as well, his latest puppet is running for the MCSD.

This election in November is a little one, and shouldn't have to become acrimonious, but all bets are off when sweet Ol' Ken is involved. And really guys, for what?

Next year promises to be bloody.


    i DO NOT KNOW KEN, THOUGH i think we've written.. do kind of know Richard Salzman,,,every summer he puts on a gathering in Pamplin Grove. only made it one time.. every year I miss it.. I feel a personal void.

    Never have found him to be a monster.. he is a little short?? But his Arcata lawsuit kind of proves that he is willing to take on government (maybe some other things) down here, I', a Eurekan living an doing politics in San Francisco.... down here politics are, obviously from Eureka.. I do learn bunches big time One thing I realize, and believe me I know the "old" boys of Humboldt.. bad crew) Richard Salzman and Paul Gallegos and ripped the old boys out..(probably not totally.. think police chief) they are straight up about it.. always have been.. I guarantee you that particular police chief and EPD not, well not strait up. In fact, if you want to really do a blog.. My suggestion: INJUSTICE IN HUMBOLDT COUNTY - well, include California and the USA there is more than plenty to write???
    that's all from here big weekend big two weeks in SF

  2. "Play nice"??

    How bizarre to read stale criticisms of ghost-writing on a blog site by "Rose".

    It doesn't seem to matter that Mr. Salzman's editorial is spot-on.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
