  1. amanda says:

    You mean there might be a chance to ditch our non-attainment status in DFW once there is a congressional representative not giving a free pass to the cement plants? Yipee!

  2. Brown Bess says:

    No more Smokey Joe? Wonder what Arlington Mayor Cluck or former Mayor Richard Greene thinks about this.

  3. Dave from Ennis says:

    I wouldn’t believe a damn thing that comes from Joey Dauben and the Ellis County Observer. But when he does retire count on him to work as a lobbyist for TXI, etc.

  4. Joey Dauben says:

    Dave from Ennis doesn’t like it because all of his friends in Ennis have been on the receiving end of my investigative reporting, both on the blog and in The Ellis County Press.

    Judge the statements by the actual validity of them. Dave, you’re outright trying to cancel legitimate news because of your hatred of the fact I’m exposing your former Ennis PD colleagues.

    Well there might actually be Santa Claus! Getting rid of that damn fool Barton will be a positive step in the right direction. The simple audacity of the smug, buffoon who sleeps with the energy companies has always astounded me. His petulence if he didn’t get his own way and simple denials of scientific truths have been astounding.

    Now he’s going to have to pay for hookers like everyone else (somehow though I doubt he’ll leave without his big fat, stubby, smoke stained fingers reaching out for more tax payer money).
    Pity the fool!
