On or off the ballot

Once again, at last night's debate, Les Ludwig was there passing out his cards and showing his sign saying he'd deliver free college education to high school students in the city, if he is elected as a write-in candidate for mayor.

Once again, the Les Ludwig slogan was used by another of the candidates while at the podium -- "Do More with Less." If Les could have gotten a trademark on that slogan, he'd be rich.

But there is an opening I see for Les. He could move to Michigan, home of the famous college tuition program established by a billionaire in Kalamazoo, Michigan. And from his Michigan beach head he could mount a campaign for president as a Democrat.

Les is presently a Republican. And, less is humping for write-in votes as mayor. But, Les has a golden opportunity there, much better than his opportunity in Pittsburgh. In Michigan, they don't know him.
