To Les and Dave with love -- not

Victoria, Texas —  It’s come to this. Even as I work on weaning myself from Amarillo, the Amarillo Globe-News’ propaganda pops up. Now, I give myself this credit: I didn’t read yesterday’s editorial on my own. A friend posted it to Facebook.

The editorial, remember, is the voice of the media outlet; so, the piece, obviously written by the nearly illiterate Dave Henry (it had his lack-of-style fingerprints all over it) has the approval of the publisher. That would be Les Simpson. The editorial sought to discuss a “compromise” on permitting transgender people to serve in the United States armed forces. Here is the paragraph that tells you all you need to know about the Globe-News and Henry’s and Simpson’s mentality.
