Editor, The Commercial:

It appears City Councilwoman Thelma Walker’s son believes in equal treatment for everyone except himself when it comes to paying taxes. The Commercial reported he is some $5,000 in arrears in his city hamburger tax obligation while running his food business. Now that the "Mean Ole Mayor Lady" has demanded he get current on his tax payment obligation, cries of malfeasance about "The Mean Ole Mayor Lady" have surfaced from the council woman’s son whose mother oversees hamburger tax collections and seems to always want the mayor’s job. Ain’t that ironic?

Apparently Mr. Walker believes "The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up." After all taxes are something others should pay. Those who demand equal treatment yet feel privileged should not have to pay taxes and/or not have to pay them on time. A word of advice, Mr. Walker: "When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane."

I normally feel the words "good politician" are an oxymoron. However, when a rare one is found, I find they are like a good hunting dog. They get up and hunt for something good. Other politicians are like dogs who are more comfortable sitting on their behinds constantly howling at the moon and about anything and everything for attention.

It will be interesting to see how all pending political allegations are resolved.

Can I get an Amen?
