We Agree

We Agree.  The following is a comment from Chaz Stevens that he left after my last post.  What he says is important so I am reposting it here:


For nearly 30 years, I have been a part of Amnesty International, helping to raise awareness to issue of violence directed against women and children.

One-in-three women worldwide will be physically, sexually or otherwise abused during her lifetime, with rates reaching 70 percent in some countries.

Violence against women and children is one of the most pervasive of human rights abuses.

James Benefield's remarks, which were sanctioned by Jean Robb, offend not just those in the audience, but our town as a whole.

Said Machiavelli, "The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him."

Under Robb's pilotage, I keep imaginging we've hit rock bottom, only to find a trap door opening up beneath us, revealing a subterrean basement. And from that fresh hell, the likes of Benefield are belched forth.

On this matter, you and I are in total agreement.
