Wait for facts

March 2, 2006


To the editor:

I firmly believe there is not a country in the world that affords more individual liberties and freedoms than our United States. Freedom of speech and expression is a priceless commodity. Or is it? One price of such freedom is that untruths can be scattered in the wind like weed seeds, rooting with a persistence that resists the later revelation of truth. I feel that the lawsuit initiated by the Kansas Advocacy and Protective Services against Community Living Opportunities alleging abuse of clients is likely a case in point.

Until his recent death, my son Jim was a client of CLO for 17 years. I cannot envision him getting better care, training and loving concern than was provided by CLO.

My request of the public and the press is that an open-minded attitude be maintained until the facts are known and understood. It would be a tragedy to see the reputation and public trust of CLO soiled by untruths.

Rightthinker--when I read the statement you quoted above...weapons of mass destruction came to mind.

This is not the appropriate place to be discussing your political views. These people were very close to their son and your nonsense is completely irrelevent to Mr. Duncans wishes voiced in this letter to the editor.

Unless you have something pertinant and constructive to say with regards to the topic presented, I would respectfully ask that you take your comments elsewhere.
