Wayne Allyn Root correct to highlight Metro officer’s actions on Oct. 1

Bruce Clark’s “Keyboard tough guy” missive (Sunday Review-Journal) defends a police officer cowering in a hallway during the Oct. 1 Strip mass murder. It then turns on columnist Wayne Allyn Root, implying Mr. Root would display cowardice in the same scenario, notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Root is not a police officer.

I struggle with that logic and am curious which type of individual Mr. Clark would prefer in the event he or his family were in need of life-saving assistance. Would he prefer the hall monitor waiting for someone else to show up and do his job or a real police officer?

I guess Mr. Clark hasn’t wondered how many lives could have been saved by something as simple as the shooter knowing the good guys were coming through the door.

LETTER: ‘What’s a dean?’

I know well about deans in higher education, but I’ve never heard of a dean in K-12. So I assumed “dean” was a new title for “assistant principal.”

The very people who claim we are destroying the planet and must get off fossil fuels are the ones who fight the attempts to do just that.
