Anti-marijuana activist Bessee references “bovine scatology” in our local newspaper

You can’t make this stuff up! The Union’s Op-Ed page includes commentary from Measure W’s self-appointed spokesman Don Bessee referring to “bovine scatology” as he seeks to inform and educate the rest of us — in the first sentence no less.

Our community has become a magnet for people like Don.

How can we ever hope to recruit college-educated millennials? Or just plain college-educated people? LOL.

  1. I have to admit that when it comes to “bovine scatology”, Don and his ilk are masters. His letter to the Union reeks of it.

  2. Another rambling rant from Mr. Bessie, our resident busybody and wannabe backyard cop.
    Will he propose another initiative to require a ban on unsecured indoor medicine cabinets in our bathrooms and require lockboxes inspected by the Sheriff for all prescription drugs at home?

      1. Jeff, my apologies for mis-spelling KRAVITZ. Didn’t mean to get fish chasing you but my comment still stands. Maybe I should take this opportunity that he may want to inspect our toilets before flushing. I’m happy the mis-spell was pointed out. Thank you.

  3. There are many of us in the middle that will be supporting W that don’t necessarily agree with the Sheriff or the likes of Don Bessee. Working on a dairy and hay farm in my earlier years I always claimed I knew Jack ‘Scat’, too. It’s very clear to me that many of the letters (from both sides) to the editors seem to carry the ‘reek’.

  4. I’m in the middle and will not support W. Do some supporters think Sheriff Royal is incompetent due to his emergency ordinance a while back wasn’t good enough for them?
