I won't Hush
A number of you demanded that I leave politics alone and stick to sports.You were upset because I called Barbara Bush insensitive for her remarks about people losing their homes and living in a smelly dome. She chuckled that since many of them were poor that they were probably better off.To those who say I should leave those subjects alone I say request denied.In other words I will write what I want.What you don't understand is I am a United States citizen and tax payer before I am a sports writer. I have views that affect my life and yours and I have the opportunity to express them just as you do.And I will.There is something called free speech in this country and I encourage all of you to exercise it. If you must have your views published you know how to go about it.We can disagree. But I will never ask that your voice be silenced -- no matter how silly it may sound.
