THUMB AWARD THE MAYOR LISTENS FOR THE PEOPLE’S VOICE

Thumbs Down to Mayor Jack Evans for uttering one of the most vapid political statements ever. Groups opposed to noise control at Love Field have distributed about 75,000 pre-printed postcards to Dallasites, asking them to mail the cards to their city council members in a show of support for the business strength of the airport. The mayor noted that council staff members have been tied up sorting and answering those missives, and that the pre-printed mailings really don’t mean much to the council. Fair enough. But then he said the letter writing is “a ridiculous waste of the time of our people. I wish they’d show more courtesy.” Jeepers, Jack, did Amy Vanderbilt write a chapter on the etiquette of democracy?
