The El Paso Herald Post published a guest op-ed piece the other day that I suspect discussed the community that contributes to this blog.
You can read it here:
It is unfortunate when we lose the ability to differ on issues of policy and instead argue based on personal attacks.
From the piece:
Being a blog that mostly caters to angry-at-local-politics folks, or people that are just angry in general for having to pay any taxes at all for anything, the echo-chamber cacophony of agreement crescendoed into a roar of annoyance and outrage.
Most of us are quite capable of speaking for ourselves. It was inappropriate for the author to conclude that someone is angry, or why we might be angry for that matter.
His op-ed piece makes many valid points and at the same time he was factually wrong when he wrote “A student that goes to a charter school takes their funding with them”. Yes the school district loses the money if gets from the state, but the local property tax money still goes to the school district.
Then again maybe he was talking about another blog.
We deserve better
