Andy, We Hardly Knew Ye...
Ok, not really. But an anonymous source (whose name starts with "h", ends with "y" and has an "ilar" in the middle - visit her blog, she's not mysterious like us) was kind enough to shoot this photo to us over the weekend.
(Andy is the one on the left, pointing diffidently, which is kind of how we've always pictured him anyway)
You know, here at the ol' blog, your crack editorial staff have become fans of Andy Rusk. We like his plain-spoken style, and his willingness to say what he thinks about things. We're also kind of glad that we aren't working on his campaign, because that style that endears him to us here on AP is also the same style that tends to give campaign managers ulcers. Most of all though, we like the fact that he is using the "blogosphere" (man we hate that word!) to reach out to the voters. We don't want to toot our own horns here, but it's a smart move. Chances are, the folks reading about Athens politics more than a year before an election are also the folks most likely to get involved in a campaign as volunteers. Would that some other candidates were as savvy.
And this picture, which comes from a rehearsal of Sam Shepard's Buried Child, shows that he's been involved in the arts community around town, which is certainly an important thing to consider when picking a mayor.
So, we like Andy. But we're still going to publish funny pictures of him. Enjoy!
The crack editorial staff at AP is like Drudge, except liberal and with nicer asses. Tip us off here.
