email: tomas.alex.tizon@latimes.com

just emailed him saying thanks and I wished there be more articles on him

in the mass media, but too bad that when there are articles on him

they either try to belittle him and don't speak on the issues


@Kuldebar, I copied and pasted, but missed the last 2 sentences....

Hmm, well reverse psychology is a good tactic, I suppose. Did you really think the article was good?


"A pair of nobodies running for president

Just a quick note: You will not want to miss Tomas Alex Tizon's profile of Ron Paul and Mike Gravel, the two presidential candidates--one a Republican, the other a Democrat--lodged at the bottom of the political polls and still making trouble for all the other mainstream candidates seeking to win the White House.

The Column One story will appear late tonight on this website and on Page One of Wednesday's print editions.

Two old men in rubber shoes waging a political war to lead the free world with little money and just a band of fanatical fans. One has chronic back pain, the other a bad knee. Cantankerous. Ignored. And nothing so far has stopped either from their lonely, little-noticed journeys back and forth across the country.




In the lobby of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Kansas City, Mo., the sea of people does not part for Paul...


He shoves a hand in his suit pocket. He thanks the crowd and says how great it is to be in Kansas, which raises eyebrows because he is in Missouri.


Paul descends the escalator like he moves across the country: unrecognized except by a passionately loyal few.


His demeanor could be described as the opposite of commanding


...looking slight on the grand stage, takes the podium.


Paul's charisma seems to be that he has none.
