A Thought for Kevin O'Brien

January 15 2014's  A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. -Martin Luther King Jr., civil-rights leader (1929-1968) 

I subscribe to  A.Word.A.Day by Anu Garg. [click, and].  He presents a word, and at the end, often, his "thought for today" is a humanitarian one.

The last few posts, that i have presented, were on Ricardo Ramos. This thought for today should be sent to Kevin O'Brien of the management of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Some few years ago he vented his spleen on protestors of the 2006 Air Show, and people responded with a small book containing some of the letters that were sent to O'Brien's paper. He has been a guest on the Feagler show several times, and he looks like a mild-mannered, soft-spoken fellow. Appearances are sometimes deceiving.

And Kevin O'Brien [click] continues to be a contemptible jerk, and hypocritical fascist. He quotes from the News-Herald because his paper's management (which he is a member of) did not write an article on the pilgrimage; although Gus Chan did photograph, and well, the pilgrimage. It is very common in the United States to see a glaring discontinuity between reporters, and photographers compared to the editorialists of management. The Cleveland Plain Dealer often publishes good reporting in articles and pictures, and then a brake is applied to those journalists, so that the editorial writers can present a Fox-like "balance" of contradiction as authoritative consideration.

It is time for a new book that has been inspired by Kevin O'Brien.
