To the editor:
Not content with his attacks on education, the environment, the arts and SRS, Gov. Brownback has recently shown a dramatic misunderstanding of freedom of speech.
After an unfavorable tweet by an 18-year-old high school senior, a Brownback henchman, whose job it must be to monitor social media, sniffing out criticism, contacted the girl’s high school principal seeking some retribution. The gutless principal called the young woman to the office and demanded she write an apology. In my view, the governor has shown himself to be a thin-skinned, petty and venal bully. As a friend commented, he is the pathetic combination of Richard Nixon and Dean Wormer from “Animal House.”
Attention, Governor: I’ll apologize for this criticism right after the next snowstorm in Hell.
