What if it had happened in China?

Dear Editor:

We read the many recent news stories and newspaper editorials about Roderick O’Connor’s trials and tribulations with Basalt employees.

However, Bill Kane was Basalt town manager on watch when the notorious intrigue against O’Connor was committed. If he were man enough, he would take full responsibility for the town-government employees’ rogue behavior.

As Basalt town manager, he was the top dog, the boss and ran the town government.

We can imagine where he hides without honor, in which mountain cave or mine shaft.

In Singapore, they would cane Kane for his job performance for what happened to O’Connor. In the Peoples Republic of China, Kane would have received much sterner punishment like some of the business executives who screw things up big time.

The inept Kane is Basalt’s shame. Enuff said!
