The glamorous among us

Tell that Popinchalk, if that isn’t an obvious pseudonym for a teacher, to butt out. If we wanted his opinion, we would have given him is own TV show. Mr. Kole represents the new Aspen to tourists and locals alike.

Kole showcases a bigger and better world view than your provincial, stuck-in-the-boonies perspective. He knows a little about everything and knows how to start conversation that gets the juices flowing. You seem shackled by a grasp of the facts.

Let’s leave opinion-making to the more glamorous among us. He was so successful in New York City, that he was able to come to this backwater mining town and dominate our airwaves. You have been there at the high school so long that you actually think that the rich and famous in this valley want to follow the rules that you are teaching in civics class. You know? One man, one vote.

If he sees class warfare in Ex Ed, then let him. I know I enjoy ranting about it.
