My response to the Chronicle Journal editorial titled Fond farewell to a good mayor dated November 25, 2010.
Letters to the Editor
Yes. When Lynn Peterson was mayor, everything was sunshine and lollipops, rainbows and the like. She was perfect. Never made a mistake. Never told a lie. Created by God to lead this city out of the dark ages. Her shit is made of 24k gold and it doesn’t stink! Everyone should be thankful for being on the same planet as Lynn Peterson. In fact, the same galaxy.
We should all name our children Lynn. If they already have a name, change it to Lynn. Its a boys name too! Every child wants to grow up to be Lynn. When Lynn was mayor, the sun rose every morning. Will the sun still rise when she is no longer mayor? Who knows? Will the wind still blow? Will it ever rain again? Will the snow melt in the spring? Will there still be a spring? A summer? A future without Lynn will be scary. She can walk on water and turn water into wine….or was that Jesus Christ? Its easy to get the two mixed up. Both have feet, legs, hands and a head. The resemblance is eerie.
No cure for cancer yet but if Lynn was allowed to be mayor for another four years, I am sure she would have discovered one. She was THAT close to discovering a cure for cancer! Too bad she was not re-elected. Four more years of cancer. Lynn. Lynn. Lynn. Lynn. Lynn. Lynn.
I don’t know of a single newspaper anywhere in the world that has the hots for a mayor like the CJ. Not a single one. Maybe Pravda when it was still in publication. There is something very disturbing about a newspaper having that kind of a relationship with its mayor and council. The once mighty CJ reducing itself to a fanzine of City Hall. A PR tool. A spin doctor. Sad. Very sad. I am sure that is about to change as Mr. Hobbs becomes mayor. In your newspaper, Lynn Peterson could do no wrong. I suspect, in your newspaper, Mr. Hobbs will do no right. If that is the path your editorial staff is thinking of taking, do so at your own risk. A lot of people voted against Lynn Peterson. Some of them subscribe to your newspaper. That could change.
