    Solid Republican red 

    As Ohioblog promised, here's another update from The Dispatch's subscription Web site where the Columbus newspaper's statewide political tour is posted: Today, Western Ohio.

    In this part of the state, reporter Alan Johnson's job was confirming conventional political wisdom. He did a nice job of it. Got some strong statements from staunch Republicans in this piece of the swingstate where, ``God, family and country are touchstones.''

    Without ignoring the urban-suburban divide between Dayton and Montgomery County, Johnson knew he should be listening to people such as 78-year-old Jess Fourman, a Darke County retired farmer.

    ``Most of the country folk, they're Republicans,'' Fourman told Johnson.

    Just how Republican, Mr. Fourman?

    ``I flip channels when I see the Kerry ads come on.''

    - Steve Love
