THAT part I guarantee will be in there. I just love how literary "bomb throwers" always excuse their pot-stirring by claiming they were just "bring attention to the matter" or were "opening a dialogue." Right...

...and of course the "dialogue" rapidly becomes a monologue with the tossing of the racist/bigot card at anyone who disagrees with the bomb thrower's premise.

I assume it will be at this link at some point: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/opinion/columns/

Here is his follow up

I would like to see a public apology to the TWRA and who ever else he might have offended.

My favorite part is how he quotes all the idiotic replies to him, none of the well written calm ones.

You are right buck J, he is still a little twerp.

More than I expected though.

PS...white people are still the Debbul


Based on the follow-up. I'd say you hit the nail on the head. I'd say heck of a guess. \:D

I have a lot of respect for a man who has the guts to say, publically, "I was wrong." I hope the folks who were outraged by David Cook's July 21st column will be as equally appreciative of his change-of-heart, inspired no doubt, by many people who helped him see the error of his words, at least in that particular case.

Rsimms....I do too! However, he did not say that! He said he MIGHT be wrong. Furthermore, he did not apologize to trying to embarrass the wildlife officer, and insinuating he was a racist!
