I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to write on the issue of Bellevue's booster club's $55,000 a year payment to the football coach.
This is just the type of well-thought-out, adult discussion I was hoping to foster here. Too often web site dialogues degenerate into name-calling and elementary-school-level intellectual arguments. That didn't happen here, thanks to you.
I respect the points of view expressed here and, hopefully, in the future we will continue to have more back-and-forth on other issues. I feel privileged to be able to initiate discussions like this and facilitate their progress.
There is disagreement here – and yes, Zack, I did decry the waste of money spent on the Ferris situation, from both sides – but that's OK. I'm not out to get everyone to agree with my point of view. I just want everyone to think about the issue.
