Empathy, Anyone?

homelessVincent Carroll is one heartless bastard and I’m sorry The Denver Post agreed to hire him after the Rocky Mountain News went belly up.  Carroll was the editor of the editorial page at the RMN and he and his ilk were one of the reasons why I didn’t read the RMN.  Perhaps Carroll would feel differently about homeless children in this country if he had lost his job and wasn’t able to find another. 

Now that Carroll is working for The Denver Post it seems his column appears daily and I don’t think I’ve read anything worthy of the ink and space given him.  Although I don’t know what he was writing during the Bush years, I’d bet a month’s salary he was uncritical of the things BushCo did while in office.

Gee, it’s too bad that what really gets under his skin is the fact that we elected a president with empathy.

Then Obama uncorked a whopper. “The homeless problem,” he added, “was bad even when the economy was good. Part of the change in attitudes that I want to see here in Washington and all across the country is a belief that it is not acceptable for children and families to be without a roof over their heads in a country as wealthy as ours.”

Bastard.

  1. Who cares if it’s 1 in 50 or 1 in 150? Even here in Coeur d’ALene we have a sizeable homeless problem and the most we get from the dogooders when it comes to finding shelter is NIMBY!

  2. Carroll: “Why do some reporters insist on hijacking national forums to flaunt their moral sensitivity?”

    Translation: “Why do those negroes insist on being heard?”

    If Mr. Carroll is an example of the RMN then to hell with it.

    Ooops, too late.

  3. Yeah, I guess I’m not all that sorry to see the RMN out of business. I also liked the content of the Post better before the demise of the RMN. It seems they are now pandering to the old RMN readers a bit too much for my taste. And the LTE reflect that – they are mostly from wingnuts.
