I don't know Dwight Newbold but I think he was looking for a more serious response than the one above.
I've been concerned about several lead stories in the three or four most recent issues of the Courier.
Apparently there is an issue involving a black county commissioner who made a slanderous racial comment when he was trying to make an arrest without the authority to do so.
All I know is what I read in the paper and what is submitted on this blog site.
This is an opportunity for those of us who contribute to this blog site to delve into an underlying issue of concern to most of us who live here.
Lets all attempt to engage in a discussion of this subject in an honest and adult manner.
"NOTHING we say or do here, is going to change that fact."
If we would be more responsible and more courteous in our responses to one another then what we say and do here might just have an effect.
No thank you sir, I'm not going to surender my belief in this great country.
You are the liberal.
I'm proud to oppose your position.
Let's move forward in an adult manner.
Happy New Year.
The Coastal Courier blog site will eventually also come down to who will stay and who will go.
This particular blog is in need of serious discussion by all who live in this community.
The new year has begun and this subject gives us all left and right an opportunity to comment and suggest ways of improving our community.
If there is in fact a racial division lets all work together to bridge that divide.
"So, Tot go ahead and "bridge the divide" on this here blog site. Charge the windmill with your lance."
I am not a Don Quixote as you often appear to be.
I like yourself am originally from these parts and I love this place very much (in spite of what the place has become).
If higher education produces the likes of yourself then I'm glad that I wasn't destined to become molded such as you have been.
The outgoing President of the NAACP posted a serious blog about a very serious concern of many in our community.
From the front page stories of last weeks paper copies of the Coastal Courier it appears to me that there might be a need for concern.
I hereby propose that all who visit this site consider this particular blog without dragging baggage from other blogstrings into this one.
Lets have open honest debate without regard to our different points of view.
Since when do you need a swearing 'ceremony' with massed choir and reception(hope we didn't pay for that). How about catch the probate judge for five minutes and get it over with. Save the hoopla for when you reduce taxes.
JimmyMack I really don't care what a buffoon such as yourself thinks of me.
Did you stay home and torment frogs with firecrackers and torture defenseless little animals?
HuDhat1 our elected officials think they are somehow deserving of grandiose ceremony.
You can bet you did pay for the grand ceremony which was not called for.
Those taking part in the morning ceremony did not cost the taxpayers unnecessarily.
The evening ceremony could have been done the same way. During the workday.
