Cheapening your cause |

Cheapening your cause

In reference to the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition meeting in Carbondale’s Sopris Park. Can’t you let up for even one night?

After seeing your ad for the event, it’s obvious that instead of a respectful memorial, you chose to make a political statement. Yes, Bush and the country may have made mistakes, but can’t you give one night in respect for the thousands who lost their lives or the lives of loved ones, or were just plain frightened to death by the events of September 11.

No, you have to turn it into just another U.S. bashing. You cheapened your own cause.

I guess you haven’t heard there is a time for every purpose under heaven (and this wasn’t the time). The whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth, and it didn’t help anything that my mayor (Carbondale Mayor Hassig) participated. I gave him credit for more taste.
