As soon as you saw that truck by the railroad tracks, you knew Tom Terminella was gonna run for mayor of Fayetteville

Posted By on Thu, Aug 11, 2016 at 11:08 AM

Is anyone surprised that Tom Terminella plans to run against Lioneld Jordan this November? After seeing his big-ass semi sitting by the railroad tracks, with the Terminella name on it in huge letters, visible from so many directions, for so many months now?

No, you’re not. Really, you aren’t. It was kind of like a mini movie preview.

I just wonder if, once he actually files to run, if he’ll move the truck, or claim it is there for legitimate business reasons?

At any rate, Tom Terminella hasn’t left as much of a carbon footprint on the Infernal Internet as many others who would seek public office, but I was able to find this amusing story from several years ago:

“One of the Strangest Lawsuits in Arkansas History”

And yes, for the terminally humorless, the “carbon footprint” line was a joke, as that great American philosopher Foghorn leghorn might say.

    At first glance, it might seem as though Washington County Judge Joseph Wood has been taking a page from Donald Trump’s book, what with his seeming inability to respond to media inquiries, but after looking over his new hires, it seems more obvious that a far more revered American institution - Fort Courage, home of the stalwarts who made up F Troop - has been the source of his inspiration.
