Hail and Farewell Helen Jones-Kelly.  The Director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services who snooped on Joe Wurzelbacher resigns.

    Christmas comes a little early.

  2. Donald R. McClarey says:

    That is exactly how I felt on hearing this news Phillip.

  3. Phillip says:

    Is that picture Stonewall Jackson?

  4. Eric Brown says:

    I find that offensive, daledog. Are comments like that reflective of basic Christian charity? What exactly does it solve?

  5. Mark DeFrancisis says:

    Nice intervention, Eric!

    Who’s Joe the Plumber, btw?

  6. Donald R. McClarey says:

    I deleted your comment daledog. The actions of Ms. Jones-Kelly are completely unrelated as to whether she was qualified or unqualified to perform her job.

  7. daledog says:

    I don’t mind being deleted. In years of posting, this has been my first. However, do not actions Ms. Jones-Kelley absolutely point to the fact that she was unqualified for the job?

    Two things:
    1. Waaah.
    2. I don’t expect any post of mine to ‘solve’ anything. Silly.

  8. Donald R. McClarey says:

    No daledog it does not . She may be perfectly qualified to perform her duties, I do not know. Her failing was a moral one. Now it could be argued that someone who engages in immoral conduct in a position of public trust is thereby unqalified to hold that position, but no test known to man can determine, unfortunately, who will betray a public trust. If there were such a test, I suspect that many politicians and political appointees would swiftly be finding new lines of employment.

    Where’s your pic of your little sausage dog?

  10. Mark DeFrancisis says:

    Oh, sorry!

    Up in the right hand corner…

  11. Phillip says:


    Then which general?

  12. That would be telling Phillip! If the correct general is guessed I will confirm it.

  13. Phillip says:

    You have set added work upon a busy day. Evil man. But off on my given task I go.

  14. You are a good sport Phillip! Here is a clue: the general was a convert to the Faith.

  15. Phillip says:

    I spent too many years in the Navy to refuse a task. The tip I hope will help.

  16. Phillip says:

    The only convert Confederate general I can find at this point is Longstreet. Do I win the prize?

  17. Donald R. McClarey says:

    No. Why restrict yourself to Confederate generals?

  18. Phillip says:

    Are there really any other generals worth mentioning? But will expand the search for Union (ahem) generals.

  19. Donald R. McClarey says:

    “Are there really any other generals worth mentioning?”

    As my brother used to say when discussing the Civil War with fellow Army officers from the South: “In Illinois we heard that one of our local boys from Galena won a battle or two. I think his name was Grant?”

  20. Phillip says:

    I’ve heard of him. Usually when Lee was having a bad day. 🙂

    How about William S. Rosecrans?

  21. Correct Phillip! One of my favorite generals of the Late Unpleasantness, and vastly underated in my opinion. He will be the subject of a future post by me. The warm glow of victory goes to you today.

  22. Phillip says:

    I shall add the warm glow I feel from this victory and add it to the joy of Christmas.

    A Merry Christmas to you and yours

  23. Donald R. McClarey says:

    A very Merry Christmas Phillip and a happy new year.
