11/16/2019 7:30:00 AM Reader reacts to editorial on district attorney's open meetings decision
To the Editor:
The first paragraph of the "Our View on Page 4 of the 11/2/2019 Northwoods River News defined district attorney Michael Schiek's open meetings decision with "a mangled mishmash of gobbledy-gook" "that's epic in its unintelligibility and abstruseness."
In the ninth paragraph, Michael Schiek's letter is a "safari through the tangled jungle of his mind" ... "and lots of nothingness in between." In the next paragraph "That's a good summary of Mr. Schiek's world, which he apparently lives in with his eyes closed, misunderstanding all he sees." (The publisher/columnist apologized to The Beatles).
In column 2, "would the public know from looking at the generic agenda that they might discuss a project that wasn't on the list."
The publisher/columnist "thought not," however they questioned whether Michael Schiek "managed to look at" the 7-25-2019 public works committee minutes.
In column 3, "Mr. Schiek, living with his eyes closed, could not see any of this."
In column 3, "Mr. Schiek misses the entire planet" - "it's the building of a $10 million-plus highway facility."
The Walker-Moore team suggest that Mr. Schiek "might be inflicted with a syndrome known as pareidolia."
The last paragraph that Mr. Walker and Mr. Moore write is reprehensible!
Obviously they haven't read the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
The moving finger writes; and, having writ, moves on: nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
