Open Letter to Philip R. Klein

Dear Philip,

I read your latest rant on David Bellow, dated Feb. 23, 2009. Typically, you seem quite confused about the real issues.  You wrote:

Sources tell the Review that Bellow is one of ten children that lives in Lumberton. He is currently a graduate of Texas A&M and has no job. He is in the reserves and is living at home with mom and dad at the age of 24 years. He has his own web site and our understanding is that he is taking online courses to be a preacher?

What does any of this have to do with the issue of a public referendum on alcohol sales in Lumberton.

While you vilified David Bellow, you praised Lumberton City Council member Don Burnett. Yet, Don Burnett, not David Bellow, was the one who misrepresented the original issue (see posting below).

I noticed that for someone who professes to speak for the common man, you seem to align yourself with the "good ole boy" network more often. I'm sure David Sheffield would agree, don't you think?

Care to discuss the real issues of how that misinformation ended up in the Texas Secretary of State's office, and upon whose orders Burnett was acting? I certainly hope that members of the Lumberton City Council aren't paying you for a "consultation," since the citizens of Lumberton have already voted once on this issue.

P.S. I'm sure we'll revisit this many times, especially after March 3, 2009.
