This morning the Rome Grange canceled the Motor Boats Off issue from their agenda at this evening's Bill Mize Forum. Why? Threats and demands from the motor-boating community. Rational used to cancel: "Too contentious".

I knew Bill. I wonder how many of those organizers ever bothered to seek his philosophy of public debates and why he started the forum. Bill worked hard for progressive county government and open processes. His forum was intended to open the political campaigning season with a brief Q&A to each candidate. The whole idea of the Bill Mize Forum is to introduce candidates and issues to the public process. Shame on these current wimps. Bill never ducked anything. And shame on the stick-in-the-mud motor-boat owners.
