"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Excitement is high. Yesterday's Blog obviously struck a few nerves resulting in a spate of anonymous abuse.

It's interesting. They who shall be nameless, are compelled to read what I have to say . Then orchestrate a chorus to express their contempt. How much more sensible it would be and serve their own peace of mind, if they just refrained from reading what I write.

But being sensible is not an obvious characteristic.

If they didn't say and do the things they do, I would not be able to repeat them.

If their discourse was sensible and fair and decisions had a modicum of intelligence, I would be able to paint quite a different picture.

Their problem is accepting that utterances on behalf of the public are rightfully the property of the public. You can't make a statement in public and expect it to not to be repeated..

They claim I make "factually incorrect" statements. They paid a lawyer with town money to put it in writing.

As of this moment , no "factually incorrect statement" has been specified. Apparently they haven't noticed the absence so they think no one else will either.

It's like that hilarious and horrendous scene in a Monty Python movie; White Knight and Black Knight are sword-fighting in the forest. Black Knight has lost both arms and both legs.

White Knight is unscathed. Black Knight legs cut from under him , no arms to defend himself is bouncing on the forest floor screaming "Fight. Fight...You Filthy Coward!"

I am tempted to publish this morning's anonymous crop, if only to illustrate the meanness of spirit. There were five but no way of knowing if individuals made the effort or one person drew on every resource to compose all five.

I decided the world would not be improved. If they want that stuff read, let them create their own web site and readership.

They could provide a link to Hugo Kroon's Blog and happily wallow in the muck together.
