Some life form lower than bottom of the pond scum has mailed two of my public officials letters containing mercury. I don't know who is doing this or whether it is some homegrown a&&h*le or not, but dammit this is Lincoln, Nebraska and people here are for the most part cultured. We don't act like this.
It is no big secret that I disagree, sometimes venemately in print with Mayor Colleen Seng and Police Chief Tom Casady, but this really p&%%es me off. I have spent time with the Mayor recently (in fact she presented me with an award that now hangs on my office wall) and I can tell you that she is a very wonderful and attentitive person, that is open to discussion on any issue that affects the city. Chief Casady is not nearly as open minded but there is absolutely no reason either one of these people deserve to have this type of terrorist act visited upon them.
Yes I said terrorist act and I mean it. Terrorism is the act of harming or threatening to harm innocent people of the third part in order to punish or extort the target of the first part. It is ok to have a beef with our public officials, public discourse is healthy and it is what makes government work, but also consider all of the other people (mail carriers, and office workers) that could have been harmed by this hatred for Seng and Casady.
It is my sincere hope that the terrorist/s that perpetrated this horrendous act are very quickly caught and punished to the greatest extent the law allows.
These are my Public Officials how dare anyone try to harm them. I am p&%%ed.
