So I'm watching the League of Women Voters forum on Cable 8. I take a big swig of water. Then, Florence Gatten says this:
"We need leaders who will take on controversial issues in a thoughtful and respectful way."
You can guess what happened next.
Hand me a paper towel?
UPDATE: After mopping up, I heard Gatten's sad tale of being "threatened" and "personally harassed" by Michael King over her criticism of Project Homestead. "Never one to shy away from controversy, I was the first to speak out", says our heroine.
This is at least the second instance where Gatten has ridden to our rescue. Witness her bold stand regarding the Truth & Reconciliation Commission:
"My speaking out about this project has caused the harassment of potential witnesses to the commission hearings to cease."
Yeah, that -- or, the doctors finally nailed the correct dosage on that paranoia medication, bringing a peaceful end to what looked to be a lifetime of "I See Black People."
Next: a cure for Delusions of Grandeur. Keep hope alive.
