Making the Jump
Thaddeus Matthews, longtime Memphis radio host, one-time television host and recent blogger, is making the jump into politics. He is planning to run for the County Commission, District 3 seat. It's always good to see someone go from advocacy to action, but I hope he understands the drubbing he's setting himself up for. People in politics who like talking to the press can get lots of camera time (witness the drear Carol Chumney) but if the press decides you're a bit "too" controversial then you either get ignored or you become the story. And get your whole life reamed under a microscope.
Good luck, Thaddeus. You have Half-Bakered's backing.
