Lynda Martin is obviously introverted this am and eludes to the social commentary about "people refusing to acknowledge other points of views" she is surprised that others would admonish her article (Interviews with Four sexual predators) and lumps Conservatives, Gay bashers,Obama dissenters and forgot who else and uses the term "Lunatic fringe" in the same paragraph. She sprinkles a few memorable quotes from Martin Luther King, Albert Camus and Aesop to validate her post for good measure.(I always love when they do that) It looks like they want to appear more enlightened than they actually are and whats better to insert in one's opinion but famous quotes from famous dead people??? I am sure Lynda M. Martin is not a bad person and some of her writings have some very valid opinions and observations that one would be hard pressed to disagree with. Many others, I doubt.. and when those public writings have an impact on people looking for "truths" and or information on a very real very dangerous social issue? Then admonishment is called for.The fact she doesn't respond well to dissent on her views is as obvious as it gets by this latest version of her "There are two sides to every question" piece. Where She and I differ is I would have titled "there are two sides to every argument and the truth most likely is in the middle"..MMartin is a liberal who lives in a world in which she wants it to be" and thinks policy should reflect that perception. ""liberals have a pesky habit of that" "I live in a world in which it is and am very speculative of policies that don't reflect that" MMartin is very disturbed and makes mention of it that her e-mail box has been on fire since her Predator article "some even threatening" OH MY!!! well Ms. Lynda I sent you one e-mail and that was a reply to your article that you refused to post and there was nothing threatening in it. Try living as one of the "in the trenches" real child advocates (without fancy credentials) who attempts to clean up their neighborhoods as you precious LE "sources" keeps dumping them in and hopes the neighbors don't notice or make noise about it so they don't have to do more paperwork. Try violating a violent offender who was dropped in your neighborhood again because the PO didn't check the "residency restrictions" before she gave the ok and the rent was doable. Try calling down police chief's in your city because they couldn't be bothered to notify the surrounding neighbors that a convicted Predator with a horrendous history just moved in (as they are required to do by law).Try understanding how a guy who served less than 2/3 of his original sentence for kidnapping and rape can be free to walk the streets and be "released from supervision" Try walking in those shoes for one lousy day when a person like myself has to position herself between the bad guys and the cops who resent you when you demand they enforce the most basic of Laws that have already been written with the Blood of our kids. Yea, my heart bleeds for your disturbing e-mails and your morning epiphany that people are so narrow minded..PS here is a very enlightening quote for you: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and is on the sex offender registry 9 out 10 times "its a duck"
