Letters to the Editor

Letter | The question should be ‘What do lawmakers do?’

In response to the question, “What do teachers do?” (the proposal that teachers should track how they use their time, see article), that is the wrong question. The more appropriate question should be what do “lawmakers” do to justify their existence?

They build stadiums that the people vote against, they raise car tab prices when the people vote against it, and they have all manner of welfare for special interests that are against the people’s wishes.

So perhaps the “lawmakers” need to go back to school instead of showing that they are clueless.
