Call It The Culture of The Aclu

Before the ACLU calls, take note:

Ms. Lopez,

I read the article you linked to from the Milford Daily News and noticed it was

not the ACLU that requested the city to not plow church parking lots. It was a

citizen who complained. The ACLU is only listed in the very last sentence of

the article and only to mention that the letter had been shared with them.

Yet, you headline your post “Merry Christmas From the ACLU.” The headline and

your selective quotation of the story would lead readers to think that it was

the ACLU who forced the city to stop the plowing. This is simply not the

truth. However, I imagine the truth of the story didn’t really matter, as you

were using the story as an opportunity to take a cheap shot at an organization

with which you disagree. How Christian of you.

Merry Christmas, Ms.Lopez (yes, Merry Christmas).

Ted Lasso Nails Brits and Americans

Ever spent much time in England? I have. Spring of 2012, it rained for a month. I don’t mean intermittently. The clouds opened on April 1, and they didn’t close until May. It was like living under a waterfall. Ever notice that rain makes people a tad grumpy? I began to suspect a connection between the ... Read More
