Brian Cole Update, 11/04/09

1:53 PM
Brian Cole "will not be announcing at this point in time."

Plus: More Cognitive Obamatherapy--Obama One Year Later

A few minutes ago, in a phone conversation with Baker City High School Athletic Director Mike Sullivan, he said that Brian Cole "will not be announcing at this point in time." Mr. Cole has been the regular announcer at high school sporting events for a number of years. While not specifically asked, Mr. Sullivan volunteered that the high school has "No comment on what has happened to Brian." An hour earlier they had thought they would issue a statement about Mr. Cole's future involvement with high school athletics, but they changed their minds and decided not to write a statement, at least for the time being.

While I am aware of events related to the investigation, Baker County Blog is just not going to report those details until public documents become available or until the investigators have been able to do their job, with the investigation having run its course. The prosecutors do not want to try the case in the press, and that makes sense to me.

For background on the case, see the article below from yesterday.
Obama One Year Later: The Audacity of Winning vs. The Timidity of Governing

Arianna Huffington: David Plouffe has written the most important political book of the year. The Audacity to Win arrives at a crossroads moment for the Obama administration -- exactly one year after the election. While reading it, I found myself wondering what Candidate Obama would think of President Obama. Would he wonder how the candidate who got into the race because he decided "the people were getting hosed" became the president who decided that the American people can only have as much change as Olympia Snowe will allow? How did the candidate who told a stadium of supporters in Denver that "the greatest risk we can take is to try the same old politics with the same old players and expect a different result" become the president who has surrounded himself with the same old players trying the same old politics, expecting a different result?
