As a response to the ugly comments printed on line against Janet and me, I offer the following list of attributes with the admonition to apply them to those Insider Republicans who have suddenly appeared at the monthly Board of Supervisors meetings. The last meeting saw Don George, an ex-member of the sewage board claim he received a death threat. The police and the DA investigated and concluded it was not a threat at all. To make matters worse for his claim he had gone into the back room with his alleged death threateners.
