As we post this info, we will share our thoughts on what is posted, but we aren't gonna tell you what to think or force our opinions on you- we'll save that kind of deep throat action for the original Sbynews. Now you may be asking yourselves, wouldn't a fair and balanced blog (with only a slight bias) allow Mayor Ireton and the "folks" in the Campbell Neighborhood Association to tell their side of their story too? Sure, we'll give them a chance. But the Times (or whats left of it) and the cigar smoking, mustache twitching paparazzi of the Eastern Shore already form a pretty impressive cheer-leading squad for the Ireton-Campbell team, so we aren't too worried about their coverage. No, here at The Other Salisbury News, we want to hear from the rest of you. We really look forward to talking with you Delmarva, it's been a while since we've heard your voice.

Good Evening Delmarva!
Well Salisburians, the time has finally come. Help has been requested and it has arrived. Holierthanthou and myself have teamed up to bring you something even better than news- information. Accurate information. Because lets face it, these days the "news" that circulates around this Eastern Shore of ours just can't be trusted. So, acting on good faith that you are all educated individuals who can make up your own grown-ass minds about what to believe, we are going to do our very best to give you as many of the facts as possible. This is a place where we will help you share your own stories about experiences with police (COLLEGE KIDS), run-ins with our local politicians (CITIZENS, BUSINESS OWNERS, SLAVES OF THE CITY) and online documents that you think the people of Salisbury should see. Are we biased? Kinda, yea. For a long time we have watched as a small fraction of people has dominated the public dialogue, so this will not be an arena that caters to that faction...fraction. We want to provide a forum for the thousands of voices in Salisbury that have been systematically drowned out by the powers that be for years- as two of those voices ourselves, we know what it feels like to be ignored.
