A disclaimer for all stories labeled with the Sandusky Regurgitator logo: They're satire.
Satire can be misinterpreted and sometimes not understood - which unfortunately for me - is most likely the fault of the writer.
I make it a point to at least have a point when I spend time writing. The point was that there is always two sides to every story. In this particular story, SR readers can either cheer on the rookie reporter who is fearlessly standing up to the ruthless Perkins township trustees (who dared to have a 5 minute executive session meeting without notifying The Most Important Person At The Meeting who may or may not have shown up late!) or in the alternative, slam the trustees for technically violating the Sunshine law. With satire, you can do both.
In Regurgitator-speak: The trustees were caught at Toys R Us. So what? They weren't trying to carry out some malevolent plan, they were simply caught together in public looking for Christmas gifts. For those who realize that this was only a technical violation, we all must acknowledge that technical violations create acceptance for violations in general, hence: The trustees were caught with their hands in the technical cookie jar.
Out of the 13 comments on that last article, I'm most grateful for this one - which tells me that there is somebody out there who gets it:
I see the grass on both sides of the fence, but unfortunately, in today's world, you must pick sides without acknowledging that both sides have patches of brown here and there. Nobody's grass is perfect.
As an observer, the evolution of Ouriel's relationship with the trustees will be interesting to watch. Will it devolve into a tit-for-tat relationship producing an endless supply of "gotcha" stories that essentially have no real point other than to prove that the SR is the press and you should fear them? (That'll be productive!) We'll wait and see, because that's all we can do.
And yes, (IMO) the trustees were wrong.
Attention all loons who squander their precious time on disruptive commenting: Screen names meant to impersonate me will be deleted, so don't bother going through the trouble. You might post a comment or two, but they'll be deleted as well. Your world shouldn't revolved around me, after all I'm just some inconsequential, uneducated manual laborer who writes on the internet. Seriously.
