One photograph, two sentences, an elegant expression, thank you.
I still have issues with the implied exclusivity in Runfellow's original piece, and with our esteemed editor's stated fear of uneducated voters causing unpleasant election results. I can feel my Sam Rayburn Populist parents rotating in their graves with the use of such an air of superiority.
To me, this anti-progressive attitude can result in the election of the ventriloquist Gorena and his current "dummy". Did anyone happen to notice Mr. Ferguson's winning margin was much slimmer? Hill's cadre is not growing, apathy is overwhelming his opposition.
I have spent time on both sides of the tracks, most people are good and decent, so let them become knowledgeable thru voting. The implication that their lack of familiarity with the issues makes them lesser is not what the republic I was taught about meant in the Constitution.
By the way, is the above photo one of former candidate Mike McCary's rentals? His neighbor told me he has 9 rentals in Lewisville, some of them rented to undocumented visitors (This neighbor is a documented immigrant.).
