To the editor:
I wish I had been as surprised as many other Lawrence citizens were when Sam Brownback closed the Lawrence SRS office. Since the city of Lawrence is a stinking cesspool of moderates and independents, this action is a quick and easy way to get political retribution for our voting wrongly. This closing won’t save a penny, since the local SRS jobs are allegedly being transferred elsewhere else, but it will serve to teach Lawrence a lesson in Kansas Republican politics.
It will be interesting to see how quickly Rep. Lynn Jenkins goes on vacation when asked to defend her constituents on this issue.
I’m sure Brownback’s belief that the Douglas County handicapped can simply hop in their (hopefully motorized) wheelchairs and zip over to the Topeka SRS office is part of the “very detailed process that was thought out and researched and examined” by the new out-of-state ultraconservatives he has imported into these state jobs. All that is lacking is a special “bike-style” highway lane. But just think of all the jobs building that lane will bring to Kansas. We should be grateful to Mr. Brownback for another triumph.
