Ed Philpot just made Kate Miller's spin doctor job a lot harder

To The Daily Sun,

Kate Miller tries her best to put a decent countenance on the ill-received remarks of Belknap Commissioner Philpot (LDS 7/23) but could not explain how vilifying those with whom you disagree is "everyone just doing their job". Her Republican counterpart, Alan Glassman, would never countenance the cheaply partisan remarks made by Philpot.

What really made Kate's job impossible was Philpot continuing his diatribe in the same edition. As an Alton reader noted, he should just resign and let someone with a different and less poisonous vision take his place.
