Thank goodness America is banding together in concern for the people of Boston. Of course, “banding together in concern” takes a different meaning for some. Consider Arkansas Representative Nate Bell.
So glad to see that Nate is generous enough to not succumb to an urge to turn the horrible situation in Boston into a partisan plank in his (hopefully reinforced) platform.
So, what is my message here? I’d rather be on lockdown in any large city for a day or two than subject to Mr. Bell’s representation as a resident of Arkansas for any length of time–no matter how short.
My thoughts and hopes now go to both the people of Boston and the people of Arkansas’ 20th District.
