Mary Souza, an organizer of the Coeur d’Alene recall effort and bitter foe of Mayor Sandi Bloem and Councilman Mike Kennedy, claims she’s enjoying good vi-vi-vibrations from the community. She contends 80 percent of the feedback to her throw-da-bums-out crusade has been positive, including drivers who wave, honk and give thumbs-up to volunteers collecting signatures on sidewalks. In a recent newsletter, however, Mary castigates the “weird negative vibe from the few Anti-recall folks” – some of whom, gadzooks, have given the Recallers a thumbs-down. Others, according to Mary, have gone further by flipping Recallers off, including a family of five – “both parents and 3 small children … all at once as they drove by.” Huffs Mary: “Great parenting from the anti-recall group.” Seems Mary, per usual, is conclusion jumping by blaming anti-recallers for the joint familial finger, if that’s what really happened. Most parents can’t persuade kids to eat veggies let alone behave long enough to flip someone off in unison/DFO, SR Huckleberries print. More here.
Question: Have you been flipped off by another motorist in the last year?
