Response To Feedback From A Reader

Response To Feedback From A Reader

By Ron Munden — 11/25/2021

Last week I posted an article by George Smith titled: Opinion: Lady Justice Bares Her Butt.  The article began:

Lady Justice climbed down from her stripper pole, threw her purple boa and matching garter belt and  sequined thong into the cheering throng and bared her bare buttocks to the entire world.

A few days later I got feedback from a reader in the form of a text message from a phone number I did not recognize.  The text said:

Why do you keep posting articles from George Smith?  He thinks he is so cute!

These are valid questions and I feel that I owe my readers an explanation so let’s get started.

First let me address the question — Is George Smith cute?

I googled “George Smith” and found 53 pictures of him on the internet.  I have reviewed the complete set and I must admit — George is pretty damn cute, particularly when he wears his hair longer.

Now.  Why would I post an article by George Smith?  The answer is very simple. One – I believe in freedom of the press and Two – I don’t believe in censorship.

People have criticized me for posting certain articles for almost 15 years now.  They have a right to criticize me as much as they like.  They are also encouraged to submit feedback articles.  

I don’t believe in censorship.  My policy has always been that I will publish any article as long as the person signs the article and provides me with contact information such as an email address.

While I reserve the right to not print an article,  I have only done that once.  But, I will add editors comments when the content of the article contains well established factually inaccurate information — sometimes called lies.

So Mr. Reader — I post George Smith’s articles because he is cute and he follows the guideline for this publication.

By George Smith

As major milestones in life approach, it’s been my style, so to speak, to do a personal inventory of…me.

Who am I? What have I done? What have I done that has been worthwhile, that has contributed to the betterment of the community at large?

I have been a part of amazing and worthwhile developments: Jason, Mattie, Brandie, Cameron are my proudest co-accomplishments.

But on a more earthly, human level, I am a writer. I must write to truly feel alive.

I write because I must, because the thoughts that swirl inside need freedom. That does not mean I am personally Trump-proud of the words that flow or that I want readers to heed my words as the Gospel According to St. George. To me, writing is an addictive obsession, a harbinger calling to read, research, analyze, think.

I have never written a single, focused phrase (or blurred one, for that matter) trying to change anyone’s mind. Ever.

But if any words that have ever passed  through my fingers caused one person  to truly “think” about their situation, belief or preference, then I believe I have accomplished something worthwhile.

Too many people today do not think, being content to be in the lemming-clan, kowtowing to mass-think, relieved to be released from the tiring process of reading, researching, analyzing, and thinking.

As my 75th birthday closers in, I thank God I never fell into the trap of just reacting and following the herd and … not expressing my hopes, dreams, opinions and beliefs in a straightforward manner, warts and all.

At this time in my life, all is good.

Well Well Well Look who spent your $$$$$

So in case you weren’t paying attention, or worried about who didnt get a job promotion, maybe Take Note of this.

Reserves Went from Excess to Lacking in a very short time. Financial stewards some of these are not.

 It is very disappointing that the city commissioners would let this happen. Maybe it is time to elect some new city commissioners.

City to postpone lighted Christmas parade to December 2 because of weather concerns
11/30/2018 — parade goer — text message
The city constantly changing the date for the Christmas parade is confusing to the public. It is understandable that they moved the parade from Saturday because of the football playoff game. However when they made that decision there was an 80% chance of rain on Friday. Why didn’t they just change the date to Sunday December 2nd at that point?

I thought that the city was going to save money by being it own construction manager. It looks like they actually are spending more money. Where is the extra money going to come from?
