If (Ed Swan) considers himself "a basic conservative," then
perhaps he should reevaluate how his philosophy might influence his choice of
It seems to me that he has no compunction for using his community to
further his goals and that perhaps in Othello he feels superior where in a
larger, even more diverse community he might not be able to cope.
The name Carole Reid seems to ring a bell, but I don't know why. Anyway, I don't know why she felt compelled to write such a mean-spirited letter about Swan. Liberals always charge that conservatives are mean-spirited, but it seems to me as we have seen time and time again, the liberals strike with pure venom.
Does Carole even understand the situation? A man who is from Othello, who drives to Pullman to get a degree to become a teacher, who has bi-racial children has been treated poorly by his professors. He has been called a whitsupremacistst. Hessentiallyly was told implicitly that he hates his own children.
What horrible crimes has he committed in the College of Education? He believes in God. He believes in right and wrong. He is conservative.
This is an interview I had with Mr. Swan last month on The PES. http://radio.thepes.com/show/audio/101005/PES%20101005%20(40kbs).mp3
