Letter: Stark contrast

December 21, 2012


To the editor:

It was instructive and distressing to read your story about our governor’s task force on teachers’ unions in juxtaposition with the many stories about the tragic assault, with an assault rifle, on teachers and students in Newtown, Conn.

On the one side we have consistently courageous teachers and administrators who risked and, in some cases, lost their lives defending their students. On the other side we have our governor who stands silent about this bloody attack, cowered no doubt by fears of retaliation from his NRA patrons, and focuses instead on the phantom problem of teacher unions in Kansas.

Unfortunately, the contrast says a great deal about both sides.

Heck, the Catholic nuns carried the ultimate weapon, a giant fat ruler. Man, one swat from that son of a gun and your hand would be thumping....

School officials in Israel are armed. Next to their no gun sign is a sign stating that school officials are armed and will protect the children. How many school shootings have they had in Israel?

First, teachers were called "Union thugs". Now some folks want them armed in the classroom. Has anyone really thought this through? How much will taxes need to be raised to give them combat pay? When will they get the pay AND respect they deserve?
