WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch was considering a run for St. Petersburg mayor. But Welch announced in an email late last night that he will not run for mayor, instead he will continue on the County Commission.

“Very difficult decision. … I think for right now the place I need to be is right here (on the Pinellas County Commission),” Welch said this morning.

Thanks for listening to WMNF! Rob -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I wrote this poem shortly after RR's great send off by the tax payers. THE DEATH OF A CELLULOID HERO; Ronald Reagan is dead, The celluloid hero that stayed In Hollywood ; During the Good War. America’s mass media has declared him, A hero and a fallen warrior. Ronald Reagan is dead, The celluloid hero who won the Good War By making movies in Hollywood . His legacy: Lower taxes for the rich, Decaying Veterans Hospitals, Slashed veterans Benefits, The mentally ill tossed out on the streets, Huge homeless populations in all cities, The destruction of America ’s unions Ronald Reagan is dead; Actor, Governor of California , and the U. S. President , Is dead. A week of hero worship, His legacy: A massive federal deficit, Training Contra’s, trading weapons for hostages. Ronald Regan is dead, He is being called a hero, He is being called a fallen warrior, He was neither! He was B rate movie actor, He played the role of President, He read all his cue cards, His legacy: “ The welfare mothers are buying Cadillac’s” “The unemployed are lazy, and do not what to work.” “The homeless what to live on the streets.” “Ketchup is a vegetable.” Committing on a possible US Postal Service strike: “ I will fire all of you, we can train monkey’s to do your jobs.” Ronald Regan is dead, A B rate movie Actor; He stayed in safe peaceful; Hollywood , during the Good War; His legacy: He told a good story, He mixed up reality with his film roles; He played the role of a hero, He played the part of a warrior. America honored him as a real hero, and a real fallen warrior, Dam! He was a better actor then I ever thought.
