Today, I had about six hours of "fun" called the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) - the Law School version of the ACT/SAT. It's even more fun fighting through a lingering (since Wednesday) bad cold while taking the test. If my roughest section was the ungraded experimental part as I suspect, I think I did alright. Cautiously Optimistic. We'll see.
Last Sunday had a great letter to the editor in the Argus. I don't know Mr Webber, but that was one of the best letters I've seen in a long time.
What’s happening to our county?
Who are these people? And why are they so hell-bent to change the personality of Livingston County?
It was the rural charm and uniqueness that brought most of us to this area in the first place. I hardly recognize downtown Brighton anymore, and I can’t remember when I had an uncluttered view of the Mill Pond.
Who are these people who insist that we need a half-dozen pharmacies when Uber’s Drugs was doing just fine?
They tell us that we need not only one ridiculous roundabout, but that we now need one at each end of town. They form a committee and try to pass off this crap scattered around town as art, and I’m not talking about the mutant with the penis. At least I can tell what that is supposed to be. Everyone is trying to tell me what I want in my town.
And now I have to listen to Rob Britton in the June 6 paper (letter, “We don’t need guns to be safe”) spout off about gun control. I agree that unattended children need to leave guns alone, but just telling them won’t work.
Anyone with children knows that actions sometimes speak louder than words. Organizations like the Howell Gun Club provide a great service in educating children and adults in the proper handling of firearms. They should be commended on the work they are doing.
I don’t know where Mr. Britton gets his impression that the “gun-toting citizenry of Livingston County” are driving around drunk in their SUVs, but I think that he’s been watching a few too many shoot-’em-up movies.
The legal firearm owners of Livingston County include doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants and storeowners, to name a few. You must be a well-educated man, Mr. Britton, being a spouse of a teacher, but you and others like you must look toward educating, not abolishing, when it comes to guns in our community.
Livingston County is growing fast and so will the crime rate. It’s only a matter of time. The Constitution gives us the right to own a gun, and the CCW laws in Michigan give us the right to carry one.
So you protect your loved ones with the philosophy of Sober & Unarmed and I’ll protect mine with Smith & Wesson.
