Diamon is nothing more than a Union two bit (you fill in the rest) that will say whatever he is payed to say. I don't believe that he has ever had an original thought of his own. His "Handlers" must be so proud of their "Lackey"

Huh?

Did you read the same column I did? He slammed WGAN for airing Ethan and said nice things about AMG. Hardly a union agenda. (He also publicly backed TABOR.)

I used to work with Al at WGAN. (I got fired a month after he did.) I don't agree with him on everything, but his opinions are certainly not bought and paid for. He says what he thinks. His only influence is beer.

Al has not been a tool for the union, where is that coming from? In fact, I recall a column Al wrote back probably 5 years ago for the Casco Bay Weekly in which he exposed the fact that McTeague Higbee attorneys lobbying on behalf of organized labor yet never registers as lobbyists with the Ethics Commission. Unfortunately, that column did not end the scam, as it still goes on today. Check the ethics commission website, you will not find a registration, but I bet they lobbied in the Labor Committee. In any event, Al has not shown himself to be in the pocket of labor or anyone else as best I can tell. Indeed, he seems to be getting more conservative compared to his earlier writings.

Great column.

My fave bit:

[quote]From a legal perspective, Strimling appears to be correct. (Those keeping score will note that this is the first time in this column’s history that the words “Strimling” and “correct” have appeared in the same sentence.) [/quote]

:lol:

It was a bit of a yawner to me.

Really? Not moi.

Scott, AMG is rapidly becoming a household word in Maine. I think it's time to go public, and sell some stock.
What say?
:D

My apologies to Al Diamon, wrong person. I was wrong and thinking of the Senator with a similar name.

Connoisseur of cheap beer!

In fact, it's the very same official beer drank by most of the special commissions assigned by the governor and committees to study difficult issues.

I enjoy Al's columns. He gives it to the GOP, which is often deserved.

I learned something from Al's column too, that Paul Mattson isn't welcome here on AMG. I'm dissappointed.

I don't believe that to be the case, from what I read in the article.

Diamon is the only entertaining political writer in Maine. A good political writer doesn't have to be dull but most of the others are.

I noticed there was a hint at starting his own forum was a reason? But as Scott said:

[quote]Fish mentioned another AMG contributor who started his own site and wasn’t sent into exile. He said he even offered him technical assistance.[/quote]

I can attest to this being a fact. Scott helped me out a lot when I started my site, and I've tried to return the favor when I can since I've learned more about phpBB code. Now if only I can get him to try some of those cool phpBB mods... ;)

I'm not sure why Paul isn't able to post, but I'm sure it will all work out in the end.

Reading hourly? I don't get it, Steve.
