"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

Silly Stuff

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Heritage...Culture":

"Church Street School is nowhere near adequate for a cultural centre."

Doesn't that contention actually require attendance at some time. Since you've vowed to boycott the place, you can't really make that statement.


This contention requires a response not because  it makes any sense but because it doesn't and it is  being repeated.

When a lie is repeated ofetn enough without challenge it frequently becomes accepted as the truth.

This  building has always been publicly owned. I have lived in the town  for fifty years plus.

What makes you  think I am not thoroughly familiar with the  building's interior. 

As it was and as it is.

Why do  you believe  I did  not attend the official opening of a newly renovated facility, undertaken on the basis of a resolution put forward by myself.

Why would you not expect me to oppose a use that was not endorsed by the community and represents a serious drain on town finances.

Who are you? Where do you come from?  When did you come?

Why do you think you are an authority on my efforts  to serve the
community's interest?

Why do you make a statement on my blog that is patently false and totally absurd ?

Stop slavishly repeating what you hear and think about  how much sense it makes?

So much for the "discussion" (re: unpublished comments).
