And Here Comes the Post-election Rhetoric

The 6-1-2011 edition of the Mineola Monitor is worth the 50 cents it costs just to read Kenneth Teo’s letter to the editor.

Please pardon my cynical nature, but how much more dramatic can a letter be? Really? May 14, 2011 is the saddest day in Mineola’s history? Even sadder than school officials going to jail for improper relations with students? Really?

Oh, one more thing, Mr. Teo. That dark cloud you refer to in your letter, that is more commonly known as nighttime. The sun came up on May 15th and it has every day since. We even made it through the end of the world that was supposed to happen on May 21.

Want to see sad? What happened to Joplin, Missouri is sad. What happened to Tuscaloosa, Alabama is sad. With all due respect, what happened in Mineola on May 14th, sir, is progress!

    When an area becomes so saturated with old people who are narrow-minded and perceive every movement of progress (or otherwise) as some kind of threat to their way of life – the area dies with them. Just look at all the little dried up towns all over Texas. They didn’t want change either. The fact is – not everybody in East Texas is old. There are responsible, hard working people that don’t want to live in a dry area anymore. It is ridiculous to drive 50 miles round trip to buy a bottle of wine. I realize it is not just old people who opposing every small measure of expansion. But Jeez. Even the Bib

    cont. Bible belt needs to stop polishing its buckle once in a while and check to see that the circulation hasn’t been cut off completely and gangrene hasn’t set in.
