Having received the following blast I feel it is time to quote
some more reader's letters, with my response, where appropriate.

"If not for the use of pen names, our monetary system would
probably be in pounds and shillings rather than dollars. The
political debate that led to the American Revolution and the
ratification of the United
States Constitution was waged under pseudonyms, published not
only in newspapers throughout the colonies, but in pamphlets
that were widely circulated."
I personally feel proud to stand with the likes of:
Alexander Hamilton, Noah Webster, Benjamin Rush, George
Clinton, Arthur Lee, John Dickinson and Patrick Henry.

Sadly, you are attacking the messenger and not reading the
message. It doesn't make any difference who I am. What is
important is if what I say is true, which it is. You are right
that I will not say who I am, because I am worried about the
consequences to me if I am known. There are a great many
people that want me shut down and have attempted to do so.
Please, I beg you, read what I have written and tell me what I
have exposed that is not true. I supply the documentation to
prove what I say. I noticed that you are not a subscriber. I
appreciate any comments, good or bad. Thank you.
Here are a few more emails I have received in the past few days
"I am happy that you are bringing to the surface Jeff Lewis'
careless work in this township. It should be known that he is
a big Miller, Perkins and Quinn fan. Dig deeper Chickenman and
you will find he is of the lowest moral fiber. His latest side
show as township auditor makes perfect sense - keeping company
with the crooks that are in charge should be a perfect fit for
Keep up the good work. From my understanding you are having an
amazing impact on this community and I am very grateful to
(Comment from CM) Apparently there are people in the township
that know who the contractor is on the job I am currently
reporting on. I wonder how many in Birchrunville know and won't
"Congrats Chickenman and thanks for all the great info!!!"
"Thanks Chickenman! Your emails are appreciated. "
Thanks for all the updates. I get sicker and sicker as I
continue to read your posts and blogs.
Seems like all the "materials D & L Fleck (or whatever
name he is hiding behind these days) is being paid for by the
township. As a contractor, I have to pay for all my materials
and get reimbursed. Why does he expect the township to pay
for his materials? Oh, because he has no money. That's why.
Special privileges for the friends of Ken Miller I guess. I
am moving out of this township in the next year because I hate
all the corruption and mostly Ken Miller. He flits around
like he owns the town and is not embarrassed one bit about
what he does that is clearly so improper.
Please do not use my name for any purpose of any mailing."
(comment from CM) Materials are
paid for by the township because of the type of contract.
Looking into the way the contract works, it is really a township
road crew project with assistance from a contractor. In order to
be proper, there must be more township employees than outside
contractor employees on the job. Sure didn't look that way to
me. More on that later.
