Rolly: If you think Portland is bad, try Provo

< Previous Page

Robinson has tried desperately to be taken off Mitt Romney’s robo-call list. "In spite of my attempt to notify them that I am a registered Democrat and I do not want to receive their calls during dinnertime, anytime," the calls keep coming.

"I do not know how to get them to stop calling me each time President Obama makes a decision that I support. This is bullying and harassment."

A touch of class » When Merrill Nelson was a legislator 20 years ago, I wrote about him getting upset at a page because he didn’t get one of the cupcakes a lobbying group brought to the Legislature. Nelson is running this year to rejoin the House, and I brought that incident up again just before the Republican primary where he was taking on incumbent Bill Wright.

It might have been unfair to bring up a 20-year-old trifling incident like that just before the primary election, but I thought it was funny.

Well, Nelson won the primary and the next day a cupcake, topped with about 2 inches of chocolate frosting, was delivered to me at The Tribune. The note Nelson wrote on the card said: "Calling for a truce in the cupcake scandal."

You’ve got it, sir. I’m laying down my poison pen.
