To the Editors of the Western Vermont College Red & Black

Dear Editors,

There’s a homeless woman that comes in the soup kitchen where I volunteer, and she wants to run for mayor.

But the city has this really stupid law that requires people who want to run for mayor to pay a fifty dollar registration fee, which essentially shuts out homeless people and poor people from running for office.

I’m sorry, but I think this stinks!

My friends say I’m crazy for feeling so strongly about it, but I can’t help it.

They say she couldn’t be mayor anyway because she’s an alcoholic and rubs shit in her hair.  That attitude really makes me angry!

First of all, alcoholism is a disease (duh) and I don’t see why a person should be dismissed just because he or she has a disease.  How would you feel if you were suddenly fired from your job because you got a case of dry skin?  I think that stinks!

And I guess the fact that she rubs shit in her hair makes her less “mayoral?” I’m sorry, but could we be more image-driven?

Everybody says they’re for equal rights but the mere thought of a homeless, alcoholic, shit-smeared person (who just happens to be a woman) repels them.

I’m sorry, but did somebody just say “hypocrite?”

I think we should all work on being less critical and more open to new ideas. And if you’re not, you’re nothing but an intolerant, closed-minded, money-grubbing, fat-assed Republican!  And I think that stinks!

I’m sorry, but I had to get that off my chest.

Amber R.

    I think the only people who should be allowed to run for public office are people who smear shit in their hair.

    So she doesn’t know shit from Shinola? Sounds like most Liberal politicians to me. Nothing new here.

    Me thinks that Brian and Chuck really know their shit.
    Politicians ARE the shit that is rubbed into hair.
