Wife Apologizes for Husband’s Letter to the Editor

Back in November, I helped advocate for the passage of two bonding referenda to finance the repair of Clarence school buildings and grounds, and the construction of turf fields at the high school.  70% of the cost of these repairs will be covered and reimbursed by the state government.

In the Clarence Bee, after passage of the proposals, a gentleman sent in this letter to the editor:

Friday Funny

I’ve argued with my share of die-hard libertarians – glib and otherwise – in my time writing this blog. So I find Mallory Ortberg’s “Ayn Rand Reviews Children’s Movies” in the New Yorker to be especially hilarious.

Bambi:

The biggest and the strongest are the fittest to rule. This is the way things have always been. —Four stars.

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

An excellent movie. The obviously unfit individuals are winnowed out through a series of entrepreneurial tests and, in the end, an enterprising young boy receives a factory. I believe more movies should be made about enterprising young boys who are given factories. —Three and a half stars. (Half a star off for the grandparents, who are sponging off the labor of Charlie and his mother. If Grandpa Joe can dance, Grandpa Joe can work.)

See the whole thing here.
