Ah Bakersfield

One would think I could not be amazed at some of the things that go on in my hometown, Bakersfield.

Well Mayor Harvey Hall has backed down from a proclimation for a "GayPride Day' because of his fear of a 'God Fearing' crowd, stirred up by local fundementalist preachers.

I don't care if there is a proclimation or not. Has nothing to do with me. But the Mayor thinks he's a leader. Personally I think a few less proclimations from our Mayor would be a good thing.

Now this opinion piece by local writer Bob Price maybe right.

But this in the same paper that dropped an award winning cartoon strip based on a voluntary- unscientific poll of about 1900 readers. People who should lead and do a job are swayed by a few voices pretending to speak for everyone.

Both are dumb and both show a lack of fortitude.
