Some of you may have missed the article in the Red and Black yesterday, so here's the link:
Students are pissed, but lazy.
The article itself is an unremarkable, sometimes inaccurate, diatribe the likes of which we've seen for years. I bring it up here for the purpose of discussing District 10 Commissioner Elton Dodson's on-the-record reference to then-candidate Chuck Jones as a "moron."
Is that really appropriate talk from one of our elected officials, especially concerning other candidates?
BTW I think it's a little harsh. Chuckie is naive and a little silly, like all of the other "student" candidates who have preceded him, but "moron?"
I mean, sure, we pick on him here, but we're not elected officials either...
