Fort Worth Way

Another Letter to the Editor in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram pointing out the way things are done here.  WHO's listening?

Bullying pulpit

What the heck, does Libby Willis think she lives in a democracy? Is she using some of that stuff police said they found in the home of that Keller school board candidate? Or maybe reading the Constitution?

I mean, Fort Worth Councilman Zim Zimmerman and Mayor Moncrief don't need documentation to call her a liar but she definitely needs it to prove she isn't. Isn't it comforting to know that the "good old boys club" isn't dead in Fort Worth? We take care of our own -- pawnshops and gas drilling companies.

If I were just a visitor to Fort Worth it would be funny; but, as a lifelong resident, I quit laughing a long time ago. For Zimmerman and Moncrief to bully a citizen is unacceptable and mean-spirited.

-- Larry Story, Fort Worth

Riddle us this, WHY would Libby Willis need documentation while Mayor Moncrief makes up his statements?

This from the FW Weekly -
Moncrief quickly backtracked on the value of the land explaining that it was a figure he made up to make a point but never said what the point was. He had “no idea” what the real value is, he told the audience.  Nonetheless, there was nothing untoward about the donation from Cash America, he said, it was simply doing business “the Fort Worth Way.”

Yeah, DIRTY business. Thanks Mikey for not only polluting our air and water, but also our moral and civic integrity. Forget your phony "FW Way" and just behave along the line of the old American remember: truth, justice and such.
