In reference to your Saturday article, “Mayor gets little flak over Bible declaration”: The mayor of Flower Mound is beholden to his constituency, not to outsiders wanting to pick a fight over a non-issue.
If the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason decides to write the Star-Telegram because they object to the mayor’s proclamation, that’s fine. Why did the Star-Telegram waste almost four full columns of news reporting that fact?
All the article served to do was let people know that one person objected to what the mayor did — one person versus the folks of Flower Mound that elected the mayor. The majority used to set the agenda in the U.S.; but apparently not anymore.
To Mayor Tom Hayden I would say, “Press on with what you are doing and disregard the comments from the peanut gallery.”
