Ken Neal hates you
He'll probably hate me after this, if he doesn't already, but the amount of sleep I plan to lose over it can be measured in nanoseconds.
Ken Neal, for those of you who aren't familiar with him, is the flapper in the toilet that is the Tulsa World, and I suspect he's been exposed to too many toxic chemicals at editorial-board meetings, judging by this email he sent to the South Tulsa Citizens Coalition, which had the temerity to oppose something the World wanted passed:
Let's see now: After months of rhetoric and barrels of ink and who knows how much arm-twisting, you convinced 58 per cent to vote against ["4 to Fix the County"]. Even if you weren't there, the vote would have probably been about 50-50. So much for your influence. And let's don't forget: the motive for opposition to 4 to Fix was "if you don't do what we want in our neighborhood, then we are against everything in the county." Great citizenship, don't you think?
Translation: "Nanny nanny boo boo."
And people wonder why the World is held in such bad, um, odor these days or perhaps they don't.
