Why criticize the conservation district? | Letter
One of our online news sources has developed an anonymous comic book section called the Trojan Heron.
Having never seen one, I visualize it as a penguin: chesty, taking tiny steps and constantly bleating. It may wear a funny hat and cape, but I don’t know that. I do know that this bird has a strange toolbox for creating information. It must consist of a Ouija board, crystal ball, tarot cards and possibly a magic stick for divining water.
These, of course, are not the tools for plausible news or opinion.
On Aug. 3, this bird took flight and dropped 400 or more words over the Island Guardian, where they came to life as just another attack on the Conservation District. Comical is all you can call it. The strange bird used the word “though” sixteen times to offer and weave 25 or more predictions piled atop each other, then ended by suggesting all will be fine “after we are all gone.”
In our last two Conservation Board elections, this bird put its proper name (Ed Kilduff) on the ballot asking to be elected to this board. He was defeated twice and now is leading a petition drive to blow up the board and do away with it.
Question to the bird: If elected, were you going to destroy the board as an insider - or are you just a poor loser?
