SO MUCH AUDACITY

my letter to Sports Speak Up in a local Albuquerque newspaper:

I guess we are supposed to be taken down a notch by the bitter 'commentary' of Paul Newberry of the Associated Press over the endless racial saga of Colin Kaepernick who, after shooting himself in the foot, trudges around blaming everyone else for having pulled the trigger. Mr. Newberry defends his antics with the precious argument: Kaepernick...got this whole thing started by having the audacity to silently kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Did Mr. Kaepernick think he was going to be applauded for doing that during the national anthem? Was he expecting roses to be tossed his way? What does the football field, where many talented black people are employed, have to do with racial injustice?

While churning out a wonderful sob story, Mr. Newberry seems to be oblivious to the silent protest the empty seats in the stadium signify. Are these to be ignored? Fans, after all, are making their protest obvious in the place where they have a disagreement. Right there in the stands. And letting the boss know how they feel is a sure way to get change.

But if these players have a beef with the police, they should be protesting in front of the police station. If they have a complaint against the fire department, they should be protesting in front of the firehouse. If they have a gripe against cake makers, they should be protesting in front of bakeries. To protest in a safe spot away from the source of their grievance is rather cowardly, I'd say.

To further the concept of audacity, why the audacity of these team owners not wanting to let a bunch of overpaid fools destroy their business. The audacity of these owners wanting to keep teams going that they invested their money in and which employ many more people than the players on the field. The audacity of these owners not trying to insult their customers every time a camera swings by. The audacity goes on and on.

The Associated Press, as so well represented by the thinking of Paul Newberry, has become an increasingly bigoted, envious, and Leftist source of liberal propaganda. The audacity of readers getting so fed up with it that they cancel their subscription. The audacity of that.

THE WOODEN EAGLE

Leo Sanchez, using his chainsaw, has created a noble eagle sitting on its perch. The smaller white eagle on the right side picture is his model which he used to design the larger wooden sculpture.

Leo, a Valencia County resident who works for the New Mexico Gas Company, also sculpts in bronze, pouring resins, and ceramics and also does taxidermy.

THE FLORIDA SHOOTING AND FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

my reply to the Journal's February 20, 2018 editorial which doubtless will never be published:

It's very nice of the Albuquerque Journal to be looking out for us with gun control statistics culled from that bastion of personal liberty - the Jeff Bezos-owned anti-Trump Washington Post, but it would also be nice if we were given a little more background information on Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz.


For example, the FBI was given not one tip on this murderer but TWO tips and did nothing with them. Maybe we should ask the FBI what they do all day other than spend most of their time looking for dirt on President Trump.


Cruz was also well known to local law enforcement with at least 39 calls to his home over the past seven years. Nothing happened.


The Florida Department of Children and Families investigated Cruz over an alarming YouTube video. Crickets.


The school he went to also knew about his erratic behavior and did little about it.


So more gun laws would have prevented this? More background checks? When the 'authorities' turn a blind eye to what's going on? Sheesh, every time something like this happens, the word 'reform' is trotted out as if adding more laws and spending more money will fill the void left by a godless society intent on ignoring laws when they choose and peddling unlawfulness when it suits their political purposes. Sorry, but crime is random, life is tenuous, and no amount of wishful thinking is going to protect us from the razor blade we tread upon each and every day.


Nevertheless, there is one thing that a national dialogue on school shootings and mass shootings in general should be started over and that's the role the Media, especially television and the Internet, play in all of this.


I daresay, it wasn't the gun that told this madman what to do. Or the bullets. Or the scope. Or the stock. Not even that great liberal bogeyman the NRA told him to do this.  No, I'd say the idea of killing lots of people came from never-ending media coverage of these horrific events. My God, you've still got TV reporters going on and on over the Las Vegas killer. And you act like this kind of coverage doesn't plant a bug in the heads of the weak-minded or the mentally ill or losers who see a way to put their name before a fearful public?


I think we really need an examination of media coverage. And, as you would see more and more of MY gun rights curtailed, maybe it's about time we see some of YOUR freedom of the press rights stepped on, too.
