I mentioned Raleigh writer-activist Bob Geary in an earlier post. And he’s been kind enough to read and comment on our blogs.
Bob has done something I admire. He started out as a newspaper reporter – for the Independent Weekly. He writes a lot about Raleigh politics. And, apparently, he has been active in local issues and campaigns.
This is what I admire: Recently, a local political observer told me that “Bob Geary controls three votes on the City Council” – Mayor Meeker and Council members Thomas Crowder and Russ Stephenson.
Is that true?
If it is, I put Bob in the same league as Lou Dobbs. Dobbs has leveraged his CNN anchor’s job to the point where he is now the nation’s leading anti-immigration spokesman.
Let’s just pray that Katie Couric never uses her power for evil ends.
