Let’s All Enjoy George Clayton’s Website

Last week, the Morning News took Highland Park resident Tincy Miller to task because her campaign sent out a flyer with a couple of spelling errors. The News even gave George Clayton, the English teacher who ousted Miller from the State Board of Education two years ago, a chance to gloat.

Glass houses, Mr. Clayton. I came across your campaign website last night. First of all, the URL makes it look like you’re running for the Texas House instead of the State Board of Education. Second of all, an English teacher should know that the best way around the awkward back-to-back e’s in “reelect” is a hyphen, not a capitalized second “e.”

Third, let’s check out the menu you’re presenting to the site’s visitors. They have a choice of:

  • New Contact Us Widget 1
  • New Text Widget 2
  • New Text Widget 1 (Why does this come after New Text Widget 2?)
  • Schedule of Events
  • Page 2
  • Page 2 (Yes, again. And neither tab takes you anywhere.)

Finally, that’s a nice schedule of events you’ve compiled. I expected to see things like “Candidates Forum” or “Voter Registration Deadline.” Instead, you included “2nd Qtr. Report Cards,” “PTA Meeting — January,” and “Talent Show Rehearsal.”

Nice job all around. Best of luck with your reElection campaign.

    Wow, why anyone would use that GoDaddy auto-website tool is beyond me. Why anyone would use GoDaddy at all is beyond me!

    I was the UPI Bureau chief in Salem, Or, when the whale washed up. I covered it for the service. I drove down to Florence with my wife and two of my young children. We vividly recall the falling blubber after the blast. We could hear big pieces landing all around us as we crouched alongside a car in the parking lot where we had been restricted to by the highway department. We could hear the pieces crashing onto cars. Chunks of blubber were flying over us like artillery shells. We were all covered in fallout from the disintegrating blubber, and we stunk like you wouldn’t believe. It took several hours to get home, but we had to leave all the car windows open to lessen the stink. It was a very long drive, it seemed, before we got home where we could shed our smelly clothes and wash the residue off our bodies. I took the picture of the explosion which UPI distributed all over the world.
