Scoop du Jour

Mission AccomplishedThere's an old saying in the annals of the blogosphere: whether or not you are the scooper or the scoopee depends a lot on which end of the handle you are at. As readers of this blog are handily aware ...
TheBlog1, your LakeCountyEye's bĂȘte noire, got the scoop on the story about some prolonged ballot objection drama playing out over in Island Lake -- an objection was filed against a mayoral candidate there, who is challenging an incumbent Mayor.

Well, turnabout is fairplay. The Daily Herald now reports that one of the signed objectors is a political ally of that Mayor, and does business with the Village of Island Lake:
Island Lake records detail activists' financial ties
Your lakeCountyEye is shocked -- shocked -- to learn that business interests and political interests will intersect to help get politicians elected to local offices. Haha, j/k.

They say in the blogosphere: dog bites man is not news, man bites dog is news. The real significance of the Herald story is that -- as of the time of this post -- you are not reading about it on TheBlog1. See for yourself:
No, you are reading about it here instead, on your LakeCountyEye.

There's an old saying popular around the blogosphere, be nice to bloggers on your way up because you meet them on your way down -- haha, TheBlog1 just got scooped by their bĂȘte noire, the LakeCountyEye.

Look for your LakeCountyEye doing the LakeCountyEye victory dance.
