Link to "the Mayor's" Letter
In the letter, the writer uses big words. Words the Mayor doesn't have in his toolchest. Those of you that know him are nodding right now!
I was reading it and the tone sounded familiar. Then at the end "the Mayor" ended like this:
"Dissent is good and vigorous disagreement is healthy to assure that the best decisions are made; created discord and divisiveness, however, are not, and the citizens do not like it and do not want it to continue."
Where did I read a remarkably similar piece. Oh...BOB KERRIGAN'S BLOG!
"Dissent is good. The right to expose corruption wherever it occurs is unique in this country. In virtually every other country in the world, you can be arrested for exposing corruption. Politicians need to be challenged every time they make a decision on anything that impacts the lives of their constituents. That is good for everyone. Sometimes those that criticize are wrong, but that is equally ok. The right to expose corruption carries with it the possibility that innocent mistakes will occur, but the greater good is accomplished by the exposure of corruption."

Come on Bob! Ashton thinks rancor is either what a beauty pageant judge does or the large reptilian kept as a pet by Jabba the Hutt in a pit below his palace court, to which he fed any who displeased him.
