The Stench of [Complaining]
By Katie Parrott


September 05, 2008

Things are not so black and white, Mr. Hanger. Not one of our elected boneheads, as you so endearingly call them, is infallible, nor are their decisions always going to be infinitely wise and the outcomes perfectly judicious. How presumptive can you get? (An honest question.)

Are your decisions, personal and professional, perfect? (A rhetorical question.) Obviously not, judging by the way you chose to voice some of your opinions in your letter. I understand your outrage and the need to vent, but a little tact might enable the bits of truth in your ranting to be heard.

For someone who claims to be done with Alaska politics, you sure have done a lot of [complaining]. [Complaining] is unproductive and of no use to anyone, and quite frankly makes you sound foolish. Instead of getting your [shorts] in such a wad and throwing around insults, dig out that wedgie and do something productive! Bring justice and order to the KGB! Run for office and initiate reform!

As impeccable as your judgment seems to be, I d like to see you put your money where your mouth is, so to speak. Faultless discernment and omniscient insight into all things related to government would likely be a welcomed asset to this city and state.

Unfortunately, you won't have the vote of this praying Christian -- unless you repent and amend your methods.
