By Jon Halsey
By exerting more patience and restraint than I thought I was capable of, I have suppressed the urge to join the confused struggle or fight regarding the Wet/Dry issue. However, my imperturbability bucket ran dry with the posted comment that "..only the ones that say No to alcohol being attacked..."
With a number of reader responses, accusing the individuals who signed the petition to allow citizens a vote in the matter, of wanting to see their kids dead and Yes voters being characterized as some kind of un-christian wastrels, drunks and perverts, I conclude that the phenomenon of "Selective Hearing" must have a corollary known as "Selective Reading".
As for my position: I'm overjoyed that the citizens, on both sides of the issue, are being given a vote in the matter.
