Tony Goolsby Bawk-Bawks at Debates
State Rep. Tony Goolsby, former Unfair Park-er Matt Pulle just called you a chicken, because you refuse to debate Democratic challenger Carol Kent. And because you and your people won't call Matt back -- which, when you think about it, "makes sense," Matt writes. "If you’re afraid to be seen in public with a rival, you’re not going to jump at the chance to explain yourself to a reporter. Men with no arms don’t box." Maybe not, but they do play golf. --Robert Wilonsky
