It's reached the point where I can't even read my own blog threads anymore. My recent Two Cents about what Dr. Martin Luther King would think about today's society resulted in an extended argument about city employee salaries and benefits. The same thing happened to yesterday's request to have Menasha Mayor Joe Laux apply for Oshkosh city manager. My call to have the same strong turnout we saw in the February primary at the April general election resulted in a discourse about teacher salaries and how much they actually "work".
A listener asked me (in person--a refreshing change in today's e-mail, instant messaging, texting dependent society) why I don't jump in on these discussions? As I told him, I would much rather honor those with good points in the medium where a much larger audience gets to hear them: right here on the radio.
