Witch hunt

March 11, 2006


To the editor:

Regarding Mike Wildgen's ousting:

I called it a "witch hunt" a year ago when there were grumbles at City Hall over city staff not being helpful enough - especially as it seemed to me to be toward contractors or developers.

There were those who pooh-poohed that idea. Now I feel vindicated. Mr. Wildgen is out! It seems he and his staff couldn't predict the amount of Lawrence's growth. So it seems that you gotta keep the developers happy, at least under the current City Commission.

'Nuff said there - for now.

Wildgen was an idiot. Yet we kept him around, although I don't know why. Why did we keep Reagan and his trickle-down Reaganomics plan for 8 years? Why did people vote for the shrubbery twice? Why do some people think that a strong work economy is somehow bad for America?Why are we still trying to figure out if we need another water treatment plan or not? What is the flightspeed of an unladen swallow?

All we have done is remove a rusty cog. Right now, there is no cog doing it's job. And I guarantee you that the next one will be missing a few teeth as well.
