PD: Perfectly Dutiful 

This week's letter comes from Dean Warner who reminds us of an old adage about people in glass houses. Regardless of what you think about

This week's letter comes from Dean Warner who reminds us of an old adage about people in glass houses. Regardless of what you think about leash laws, it's a pretty solid take. Thanks, Dean. You can pick up your winners spoils, a pound of Strictly Organic Coffee at our office, 704 NW Georgia.

 

It was with amazement and admiration that I read PD's April 2nd letter to the editor entitled, The Lazy Non-Leashers.  It wasn't so much the content of his/her piece that impressed me as much as the logical inference we must draw from it; namely, that PD has him/herself never violated a single posted law, rule, ordinance or regulation.

Wow, kudos to you!  Well done, Sir/Madame.  Well done. But I have to ask, how do you do it?  Particularly, strictly obeying all posted speed limits.  I know I couldn't manage that for a single day, let alone a lifetime.  To have never exceeded a posted speed limit is not only impressive, it fortifies you against all claims of hypocrisy and clearly gives you the moral authority to pass judgment on the rest of us who transgress from time to time.  And thank goodness, for without that moral authority I'm afraid you'd be just another sanctimonious buffoon ranting about folks who disregard regulations that you happen to care about.

But seeing as your house has no glass, by all means, let the stones fly, PD. Let the stones fly!

Dean Warner, (lazy non-leasher), Bend
