I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Quincy Fire Department “Brownouts” to start June 1

Rolling firehouse closures to last no more than 24 hours

Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning confirms to Quincy Journal.com that temporary “brownouts” at some of Quincy’s fire stations will start June 1.

The brownouts are the result of the City Council and Firefighters Union Local 63 being unable to reach agreement on a new contract.

After a meeting of the Fire Committee, Henning said the brownouts would go into effect “if, for some reason, the QFD’s man-power level drops below 16 personnel on a given day, rather than utilize overtime to man that station because of the budgetary constraints we have, we will temporarily close, or “brown-out” that station for a 24-hour period.”

Henning went on to say that the brownouts “can impact response times, will impact response times, I mean, there’s no way around that. But, I want to assure the public that our staff will do everything they can to get there as quickly as they can and be as effective as they can, and always have been”.

Staffing levels for the QFD would be affected by vacation or sick days.
