Shirley Simpson: More important things
November 16, 2010
To the editor:
In this world we live in today, where there are jobs lost, homes gone, lost and hungry children, abandoned animals, crime on the rise, and drugs tearing apart families, why are there so few to reach out and help?
But, hundreds will attend meetings with their hackles raised, voices rising to a fevered pitch, letters written by the dozen, and even the TV news brought to town over something by comparison as inconsequential as what to do with the deer.
It makes one wonder.
