Fifteen Minutes For Carol and Nick
Our very own Nick Bravo scores a double today with his letter to the editor getting published in both the Times- Standard and the Eureka Reporter. Now there's a hard- hitting commentary! Love the quote he attributes to Chomsky.
Carol Conners also gets another fifteen minutes of fame for her piece in the Eureka Reporter. Notice it's a Guest Opinion, not just a letter to the editor. Oooh...aren't we special? :-) Maybe we should give her thirty minutes of fame for that one?
I especially appreciate her including a quote from Thomas Jefferson. Don't know that I'll be trying to read much else Jefferson might have written if all his writing is that drawn out.
I never finished the Federalist Papers for the same reason. The writers: Jay, Madison and Hamilton write much the same as Jefferson- writing ten paragraphs when they might have been able to make the same point in two or three.
I can't be too critical as that seems to be the way many folks wrote back then. Some still do.
Anyway, a round of applause for Carol and Nick for their hard- hitting commentaries.
