Re: Time for Truth (July 17, 2015)
Scientists search for facts, philosophers search for truth, politicians search for anyone foolish enough to think they’re both.
I don’t know if anyone is being served by these angry-toned letters from our elected officials regarding what they call ‘the facts,’ ‘the truth.’ The council has their minds made up; they aren’t trying to convince anyone and they aren’t listening to anyone not on their payroll. If, in fact, a majority of residents support their efforts (I doubt it) and they’re going to do it anyway, who are they addressing? A minority that they are already planning to ignore? All letters like this do is further divide our community.
