Ken Gorman Runs for Governor 1994

Just a few months after I joined Yahooka, Ken and I both realized we had met years before. This is a short account about how that happened.

When I was in my early twenties, I waited tables at this 50's style diner.
Ken came in frequently for breakfast and we got to know each other because when I was on shift he always sat in my section.

One day he said "Hey Cadillac, do you smoke?" I leaned over and quietly said "Not cigarettes" and we both lol'd.

He said "Hey man, check this out." He pulled out the flyer you can see below and slid it across the table.

I was surprise and amazed at the same time. "You're gonna run for Governor?" I never knew anyone that had run for Office before.

He said, "Yup. I hope you can come."

I told him I couldn't because it was a saturday and I would be working until about 2 or so but I slid the flyer back to him as I asked him to sign it for me. He knew my name, but he called me Cadillac because that was the nickname I had at the diner.

I wanted to bring this with me when TokinGLX and I were going to have lunch with him. I was looking forward to hearing, "Holy shit! It's Cadillac!!!", but we lost him two days before that could happen.

When I found this flyer the other day, I thought of Hooka and everyone that loved Ken. I've had it for years, but this belongs to all of you too, Hooka.

Safe journeys to all of you and when you face adversity remember Ken. He never gave up, and his life and freedom were constantly on the line as he fought for people that couldn't fight for themselves.



Please put the sticky on this.

Ken lived his life on the front line and paid the ultimate price.

A stark example of what the WOD is really about.

You joined before Ken died.. by the latter days of his posting he had taken to telling all the sheep and neocons to fuck off and wake up. Fair play, guy is literally a legend.
