The family of Private First Class Caleb Killian proudly submitted an article to their local “alternative newspaper”, the Madison County Crier announcing his graduation from boot camp. The hippie who owns the newspaper took liberties with article and published her own “alternate” version of what would make the article sound sweeter to her drug-ravaged ears;
So, of course, her incessant yapping caused an uproar in the community. As is the wont of hippies, Frances Madeson reveled in the attention and then spends hundreds of words lecturing the community on how she’s smarter than they are.
I wanted to establish the practice that if you send me stuff (and I hope that you will, the more challenging the better), I’m going to use it creatively to promote thought, even critical thinking.
There’s that “critical thinking” bullshit excuse that hippies use every time they’re wrong and piss off the community. It was a simple announcement that gets published in small newspapers across the country every day, but this drug-adled spaz had to make a big deal out of it.
Luckily for her, the family are more rational than she ever was on her best day and responded thusly;
“We as a family are extremely proud of our son and his accomplishments. He has always been an exceptional and driven individual. Caleb had other opportunities, yet chose to join the USMC. We respect him for that decision. The current situation concerning the Madison County Crier and its editor, Frances Madeson, has become extremely convoluted. Our community coming together in support of one of their own has been incredible. The dialogue that is currently taking place is equally as incredible. There have been many articulate views expressed by those in the community insulted by her actions (and follow-up responses). While she has now written hundreds of words further criticizing the community, she has yet to write the three simple words everyone, especially my son, deservedly needs to hear, “I am sorry”. If her desire is to see change, then perhaps she should begin with humility.”
