I was quite surprised that John Gleeson's column "George terror smells like politics" (Coast Reporter, March 7) was so heavily laced with hyperbole and blunt stereotypes.
He even appears to have coined a new term for anyone who doesn't shill for the George - "redneck hippies."
While lip-service is barely offered to the valid concerns many of us have over this proposal, most of the column is a nasty attack on a growing number of concerned citizens who have taken an interest in what is going on regarding the proposed development of the old Hyak Marine site.
In recent weeks we have been labeled as bullies, now we are redneck hippies (an absurd label if ever there was one) with mayoral ambitions. Such conjecture raises far more questions than answers, especially as to the motivations behind such a column.
Who again, Mr. Gleeson, is being nasty?
