It has come to our attention that NewsTalk 1230's own Garret Lewis
(he of the "All You Can Eat" Counter Protest
to Cindi Sheehan) has decided to call our newest BearBacker, Wendy (who Does Waco
) a feminist and sexist. While we might normally shrug this off as another shining example of his "independent" analysis providing Wacoans with "fair and balanced" coverage of local events, it was made in the context of a 20 minute rant disparaging Cameron Park as unsafe, criticizing the improvements planned for the park
as a waste of "my property taxes." Similarly, Garret kept insisting that Cameron Park was unsafe for families.
Garret Lewis: "My views on life in Central Texas are piped in from FoxNews HQ in NYC, but I am a political 'independent' of course. Just like Sean Hannity."
This is hardly true. Have you ever been to the park, Garret? Probably not, because you are too busy reading Ann Coulter's latest drivel to have set foot in the most beautiful municipal park in Central Texas. While your conservative views may endear you to a few Wacoans, your East Coast "I know what's best for you simpletons" attitude has got to go. I don't know how they do things in Long Island, NY, where you hail from, but here we take pride in our public places and try to keep them from falling into disrepair. Maybe next time you have some time in between reading the memorandum from FoxNews Corporation on how to give your analysis the needed conservative slant, you should set foot in our beautiful park.
A Scene From Garret Lewis' Tax Burden
Now, why don't you whine some more about your property taxes, especially since they pay for the local schools. Since you and your wife don't have children, doesn't it stand to reason that you shouldn't have to pay those taxes? Perhaps you can claim an exemption next time McLennan County asks you to ante up. We could call it the "My Taxes Should Only Go to Things That Benefit Me" Exemption. Or better yet, the "Back in New York, we had to pay all kinds of taxes, but now that I'm here in Central Texas, I shouldn't have to pay any to support my adopted city's greatest natural asset" Exemption.
Pipe down re: Cameron Park, or we will bring all our resources to bear on discrediting your dog and pony show. Do not make fun of Wendy again. She is our friend.
