Actually two suggestions:

1. Have the damn enormously successful steak fry every year, same time every year. (Second Friday in June really worked well but you pick the time and keep to it.);

2. Name it "The Butch." No other description will be required.

When you have it in the off year, keep the money and spend it anything you think will help the party: aldermanic elections; college student recruitment; electronic party newsletter.

Several times, YD's have come THIS CLOSE to being a true power in democrat politics here. Each time, it has not been sustained. My able, young friends, do this and prosper from doing it.

Uncle Tony ,

I think with a Birthday the one who could plan and TYPE was no longer allowed to be active with them.

If you look at their leadership , I see only one who can use MS WORD .

Damn ease up on them some UMR ....

The OLD Dem Club isn't cooking much these days or sending out party letters either.

Bruce Alford
Jamie Keller Scholz
Richie Reis
Chris Landwehr

Need I say more ? I see one that is proven to be able to type and use MS WORD .

Another is on the verge of being real close ....

Ease up man ease up.

There are some matters better discussed in private.

You vastly underestimate this group. Lots of talent here. Need one Alpha Leader to step up and want it.

The young element of the GOP blossomed locally in the the 70's and they pretty much ran the table. They, of course, had a vehicle to make that happen (JayCees). Current young dems have to make and maintain their own leadership development vehicle. When they do an event, it's top notch.

This is the opposite of beating them up. I'm saying they should do more of what they already do with excellence.

The Young GOP that is getting real active is a tiny bit more rabid than the ones in the 70's ......

I got called a Pinko Commie last week .

Now to more pressing issues !

3 stands as the magic number ! Lou year one had 3 more games than the Dead Birds. ........

Cal is #2 in the AP ?

Jim H who was damn near giving Oral to Petey at Pac-10 days pulls an upset ?

DMAC still nursing some injuries still gets 17 games straight of OVER 100 yrds .....

Fat Charlie beats UCLA !

Mizzou thumped the Skers'

LSU is still LSU and Mr Tee-blow is still under ice today I doubt he walks until Thursday !

Bama needs identity or JPW is more gimpy than what they are saying ....

Once again , Sat's in the Fall are OUTSTANDING ! Week 6 and no clear Conf champ coming out . No clear BCS ......

and as I said FIRED at the Gay-tor land for 9-3 the Zooker can go 9-3 for 3-4 years straight and the Field and maybe the Twin Citys will change their name to ZOOK LAND .

Been since the 1990's that ILLINI have shown some pride.

Sick sick sick play calling on the O-side .

Birthdays are good. Eternity, I'm told, is a long time. You can still hit the par 5's in two.

Its a shame the YD aren't more active. Looks like the other side is still having regular events. Even if they are sporatic, it is better than nothing.

This is very unfortunate. I choose to look at it as insufficient staff work.

I was away from all things electronic until about a half hour ago and this came as a gut punch. Classifying Material is an incredible balancing act. Classifying too much (the current rage) erodes trust. Not honoring that which is properly classified erodes trust. WJC administration was very good in the first area and was later besmirched due to B's conduct. I disagree with allowing him back into the tent in any capacity.
