There will always be cynics among us. Back in the early 90's, a fellow journalist and colleague wrote what I considered a disparaging column that was obviously referring to a column I had written wherein I recalled very pleasant memories of my childhood years. That writer, who will be nameless, wrote a column which I took as a shot across my bow. There were words like "simplistic," "segregation," "intolerance," and other Liberal shibboleths that demeaned those values and moral standards on which I stood and will always stand. The above article was my response to that unnamed cynic who has every right to express his or her opinion, even as I reserve that same right. The Mayberry graphic was inserted today from clip art I found on the web.
