Marrs and Waddell Debate

Because it's the only local race that is mildy competitive, and controversial, Del. Brad Marrs and challenger Katherine Waddell get some ink on the debate they staged yesterday.

Nothing too interesting here. Though along Cary Street Road near Windsor Farms (Waddell's neighborhood) there are few Waddell signs up. And I've seen a couple of her bumper stickers plastered on the backs of a Mercedes and a Jaguar (neither of whose drivers seemed to have the fainest idea that there cars come equiped with turn signals). Marrs will probably win.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
