On chairman raises and buying newspapers

On chairman raises and buying newspapers

You’ve read most of it here already, but nonetheless, here’s a link to my Sunday Beacon-News column
As Chairman McConnaughay slowly sails into the sunset – while still trying to justify her illegal staff raises at every turn – this may well be my last Beacon-News column covering her always interesting antics.
I think this calls for a moment of silence.
 

One thought on “On chairman raises and buying newspapers

  1. The excuse “Well, THEY did it, too,” reminds me of the excuse for supporting bad laws built on
    “Legal Precedent.” Legal Precedent begins with a judge’s decision; a decision made by one man
    to settle one question. It is a Band-Aid to cover one problem. The next judge uses it to settle another problem, i.e: another Band-Aid. Eventually there are dozens of Band-Aids stacked atop one another, but the original problem at the base of it all has never been resolved by
    Congress or the state legislature in whose jurisdiction the problem exists.
    Remember: The Dred Scott Decision was based on “Legal Precedent” too, and how did that turn out? It took the Civil War to correct it.
