I discovered Jeremy Wilber’s blog by accident. Jeremy is the former four term Supervisor of the Town of Woodstock. I’ve added the blog to my links.
Woodstock’s Looney Tunes politics would drive Jesus Christ to madness. So, it’s interesting to read Jeremy’s discussions of his tenure and the ongoing mental disorder that is our Town Board.
His distaste for the looniest of our Town Board members, Jay Wenk, pervades his blog. Wenk is our town’s token veteran. Our local Stalinists and America haters trot out Wenk continually to prove their patriotism. He’s their human shield.
“See!” they yelp. “We’ve got a veteran who agrees with us. So, we’re not really kooks and traitors.”
Wenk hates America with a passion. He’s always trying to get arrested so that he can see his name and picture in the paper. Oppressive, imperialistic America continues to refuse to throw the old fool in prison, thus denying Wenk the martyrdom he deserves.
I don’t know how Wilber survived four terms in the loony bin of Woodstock politics. Read his blog and try to figure it out for yourself.
