WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- A former Adams County, Pa., man has announced a write-in campaign for the open seat to represent the 33rd District of the Pennsylvania Senate. Andy Johnson, 40, recently moved to Waynesboro. Johnson, a member of the Green Party, announced his intentions after Pennsylvania's April 22 primary election. As a result, he would've needed to collect signatures for nominating papers to appear on ballots in November. The number of signatures would need to be equivalent to 2 percent of the votes cast in the district in 2004.

Sure, Tuesday was a historic day in American history, but not as historic as it could have been. That's because, I, Big Sydney, almost tossed my yellow flag into the ring to make a run for president. I had the whole thing covered. I wasn't invited to the Republican or Democratic conventions, so there was only one way I was going to get the nomination. I needed to find another affiliation to get me in. I thought about the Green Party, but look at me, I don't exactly eat vegetables.

Bartlett in response to a recent Baltimore Sun article that characterized him that way after a campaign appearance in Howard County. The story did, however, accurately state Bartlett's position on the death penalty. He now supports it only in cases such as drug kingpins where the crime is clearly premeditated.

I'm currently a man without a political party, so if you hear of any good ones, let me know. I used to be a Democrat, but I got chased out by the labor unions and trial lawyers and the National Organization for Women. So I became a Republican, but I was chased out by Moral Majority, corporate immorality and the voices that echo in the heads of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. That left me for a while as a Libertarian. That was a pretty good fit, since they hate everything and, for the most part, so do I. But then came along this cat from Kentucky, who's basically a Libertarian running as a Republican.

Change takes time To the editor: I am 66 and I can relate to Michael Myers feelings in regards to his not voting. Since the early 60's, I feel I have voted for the "lesser of the two evils" at election time. Change for the better does come but it takes time. So Michael, if the Green Party offers you a "voice," by all means you should vote. I'm going to vote because I strongly disagree with the current president and his polices! Gene Manon Hagerstown It's a conspiracy To the editor: I agree with Michael Myers.
