I first met Richard Dillon in Columbus Ky. when John Edwards came to that small town as a result of Shawn Dixon's efforts. I had been reading Dillon's post for a long time before that and was impressed as to how good this young man could write and his never ending zeal to change Kentucky for the better. Richard worked tirelessly in the 1st Congressional District to defeat Ed. Whitfield, during the last election and I had the privilege to work with him in that endeavor several times and look forward to doing that again in 2010.
I believe I know a hard working progressive when I see one and Richard Dillon fits that bill period!
Richard I'm Damned proud you decided to write here. I noticed you called yourself a guest blogger on this site, but as far as I'm concerned you're a peer and have full rein to write what you want, when you want and I won't interfere. Hell I'm 70 years old and I want to leave this site in good hands.
