Where's Kerry?

by Evie / September 15, 2004 7:05 AM PDT

Oh yeah, I see him out on the stump. But for someone that promised better access to the press were he to be elected, he hasn't fielded questions from the press in well over a month. Meanwhile the Russerts of the world are left to have the likes of Madeline Albright try to channel what Kerry's position on Iraq is, or anything else for that matter. While there was a planned "airwave silence" due to campaign finance issues, one would think the various networks and shows would fall all over one another for a Kerry appearance, so getting free face time wouldn't be a problem.

This is a most telling development.

Stumped in Toledo, Ohio this morning

I get the impression that as long as he doesn't have to think 'on his feet' by having questions posed to him by reporters and his inability to keep any of his stories in line with the others he's told, he's probably been told by his 'advisors' to get up on a stage, monologue whatever they've written for him, and get gone in a hurry.

I imagine that he doesn't want to have to answer questions about the CBS documents that would sure to be asked.

But apparently (missed this before my first post), he did appear on Imus this morning. Imus got in a few digs, but it's uncharacteristic of him not to bring up the issue of the day. Of course Imus is an open Kerry supporter so I'm sure there was a wink wink there.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
