What is unfortunate is that the change, however slight, will require local school corporations to spend precious resources to re-educate teachers and administrators so that they can address the needs of Hoosier children in the Wonderland created by the tea party-driven Indiana General Assembly and its Mad Hatter-in-Chief, Gov. Mike Pence.
Letter writer should prove his claims
I will be among the first to tell you there are probably other more qualified readers to answer Mr. Larry Brooks’ extremist exertions in his opining in today’s sound off (March 27). I will also tell you that I am amazed at how many column-inches have been afforded his negativity over the past several months.
One can readily discern his political bent just by reading his letters.
You and your competitor see fit to let him bellow on and on, and very few challenges are printed to those diatribes. I will assume the best, which is that there just aren’t many who see fit to invest the time to respond. Today is my day.
Based on what I read of him and the one hit I got on Google, he is an activist in the truest sense, having participated in the Occupy Kokomo event (if you wish to call it an event). I am writing to call on Mr. Brooks to start proving the things he claims, particularly today about the tea party. I am not a member, but I am a sympathizer and I do know enough to see that his exaggerations are rife with untruths. If he can provide solid proof his claims are indeed true, I might put more stock in him, rather than considering him as I do now, a rabble-rouser.
Perhaps others will read this who have a little more time to invest and write (and hopefully get printed) in response to Mr. Brooks’ assertions.
