Retort

Last week, I got reamed in the Letters page of The News Connection. This week, slight vindication: a show of support for Liberal philosophy. Still, though, I do have my detractors. An example ...
I just read the July 21st edition of TNC and I wanted you to know that I agree with the opinion expressed by the authors of the letters to the editor regarding Stephen Webster. I just don’t have any interest in Stephen’s one sided and mean whining. I am so glad others feel the same way I do. I am already at the point where I avoid anything with his name on it. Stephen needs to grow up and get a clue.

I really feel like Flower Mound is above that sort of rhetoric and it’s insulting to have an ignorant boy lecture about his immature ideology. Thanks for your time. I do enjoy your newspaper when Stephen is not around.

Thank you, Jennifer. I appreciate the feedback.

I humbly offer my retort ...
"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true."

-- The Buddah

And to my detractors I say, "Spingere fuori."


That's about all that needs to be said, I think.
