Pinellas Election Results Take Back Seat to Bruschetta.

Here at TampaBay Blue we start the day with the St.Petersburg Times [Tampa Edition]. This morning we paged through the paper for the results of the St. Petersburg city council race, the Largo race...NOT HERE. NOT EVEN MENTIONED on page one of the front page or the 'Tampa & State' secton. They did tell us about toasting bruschetta (right on top where the little headline could have been) it is off to the internet.
Dear friends at St.Pete Times..
We subscribe to the paper because we grew up with the paper, but know we must use the Internet for political news and we think this is wrong. Today it was disappointing to have to learn about the photo finish by 257 votes of Dudley over Montanari online.
Heck, Donny Osmond's father's death got more ink than the question on Removal of City Manager in Largo [Should the city charter be amended to clarify that a final resolution of removal of a city manager must be adopted by the city commission by a vote of not less than five (5) of its members] which passed with 78% of the vote.
