No right time for racial slurs

I have been waiting for someone to yell about racial tension. I said in a Sound Off earlier that Grantville had too many indians that want to be chiefs. (I can say that. My dad was Cherokee.)

Mr Lundy about said it all . He covered the whole governmental staff and then some. He complains of a shortage of funds for the city and then he writes he is surprised Ms. Clark has not sued the city.

It is time to stop this nonsense. Race is not the problem. It is the excuse and I, for one, am tired of the whole drama that goes each week in “As Grantville Turns.”

So now you are advertising for a new police chief. The likelihood of you finding someone who could deal with your politics are slim to none. The people living in Grantville deserve better than a farce in the paper three times a week or more. They need to clean house and get someone who can work together to get the job done.

I still believe you had the best person for police chief. So I kinda figure something else will be coming out. Too many comings and goings in the running of this small town. I am sure if Mr Lundy can get his expressions printed in the NTH, then someone with better ideas than race can give us the other side of this political coin.

Mr Lundy it is not right for you to use a racial slur even if you are having a private conversation. And claiming you did not know you were being recorded is no excuse.
