Say What?

Note that neither the two hiding behind fake names -- tjkong and Lobo -- don't live in Moscow or Idaho yet they feel compelled to blather on about political issues of which they are not a part. Too bad they don't have the integrity to stay out of other state's/communities political situations when they have crowed so loudly and so many times about non-residents' comments on politics in Pullman and Whitman county. Ah, integrity! Where art thou now, fair integrity!

I normally don't agree with O'Neal and often find his editorials to be nasty and mean-spirited themselves, causing one to wonder whether or not there is hypocrisy in what he says above. And his usual style is to set up a straw man to knock down. Not so hard to do. But I do agree with this:

"Moscow and Pullman are intimately connected. People who work in Pullman live in Moscow, and vice versa. Shoppers smuggle (sic) goods across the state line. The universities cooperate. The economic, social and cultural fortunes of Moscow and Pullman are symbiotically linked, and enhanced."

In fact, in that light, one Wal-Mart would be enough for our community. If Pullman had a Target and/or Costco, we could truly have a symbiotic relationship with Moscow and all talk of "leakage" would dissipate in the breeze. Thanks for pointing that out, Michael.

Poor Chris; he's one of the best examples I know of proof that educated isn't a synonym for smart.
