To The Daily Sun,
Recently, Tony Boutin called to alert me of a gathering of writers/activists for lunch. While it might have been interesting, breaking bread with folks who dislike conservatives, and tend to say some nasty things — no constructive debate – and resort to name-calling, is not discussion. As for taking it and dishing it out, no problem for me, but it is a waste of time and life is short. It would be nice if more Americans could get involved, but many of those who share my political views are working. Or, perhaps, their employer does not want them to attend meetings or pen letters to the editor.
Someone tried that with me in 1974, in my first term as a city councilor. This was a good customer for my courier business. They found that I would lose their business before stabbing my constituents in the back. And, we did lose the account.
After 18 years (this week) of hosting my radio show I am back this Saturday from some repair work to take calls from like-minded listeners from across the country, and take calls from some of those writers/activists to have a conversation, if we are talking about issues.
