Default Shout out to Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler

http://www.mayoradler.com/letter-wonder-woman/

On May 26, 2017, the Mayor (Steve Adler) received this email:

I hope every man will boycott Austin and do what he can to diminish Austin and to cause damage to the city’s image. The theater that pandered to the sexism typical of women will, I hope, regret it’s decision. The notion of a woman hero is a fine example of women’s eagerness to accept the appearance of achievement without actual achievement. Women learn from an early age to value make-up, that it’s OK to pretend that you are greater than you actually are. Women pretend they do not know that only men serve in combat because they are content to have an easier ride. Women gladly accept gold medals at the Olympics for coming in 10th and competing only against the second class of athletes. Name something invented by a woman! Achievements by the second rate gender pale in comparison to virtually everything great in human history was accomplished by men, not women. If Austin does not host a men only counter event, I will never visit Austin and will welcome it’s deteriorati on. And I will not forget that Austin is best known for Charles Whitman. Does Austin stand for gender equality or for kissing up to women? Don’t bother to respond. I already know the answer. I do not hate women. I hate their rampant hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of the “women’s movement.” Women do not want gender equality; they want more for women. Don’t bother to respond because I am sure your cowardice will generate nothing worth reading.

Richard A. Ameduri

And here is the Mayor's reply:

Dear Mr. Ameduri,

I am writing to alert you that your email account has been hacked by an unfortunate and unusually hostile individual. Please remedy your account’s security right away, lest this person’s uninformed and sexist rantings give you a bad name. After all, we men have to look out for each other!

Can you imagine if someone thought that you didn’t know women could serve in our combat units now without exclusion? What if someone thought you didn’t know that women invented medical syringes, life rafts, fire escapes, central and solar heating, a war-time communications system for radio-controlling torpedoes that laid the technological foundations for everything from Wi-Fi to GPS, and beer? And I hesitate to imagine how embarrassed you’d be if someone thought you were upset that a private business was realizing a business opportunity by reserving one screening this weekend for women to see a superhero movie.

You and I are serious men of substance with little time for the delicate sensitivities displayed by the pitiful creature who maligned your good name and sterling character by writing that abysmal email. I trust the news that your email account has been hacked does not cause you undue alarm and wish you well in securing your account. And in the future, should your travels take you to Austin, please know that everyone is welcome here, even people like those who wrote that email whose views are an embarrassment to modernity, decency, and common sense.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Adler

The mayor's response was so awesome. It made me a little teary.

I really wanted to see Wonder Woman with my youngest daughter and granddaughter and have a girls day but my daughter (politely) persisted in wanting to bring her boyfriend.

I could have made an issue but I did not.

It would have been a blast to see an all-girls showing.

How often do females get to see a female Super Hero?

Not.

We all are going on Sunday.

Default Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren announced on Wednesday the launch of 'DeVos Watch,' a new initiative tasked with holding Education Secretary Betsy DeVos accountable and ensuring that the Department of Education serves students, "not the industries that make money off them." Warren argued that DeVos was actively trying to undermine efforts to protect students.

Two of Secretary DeVos' first hires at the Department were Robert Eitel and Taylor Hansen,who were lobbyists on behalf of the for-profit college industry and have represented clients that have paid millions for defrauding students by abusing the student aid program and preying on students.

To a school teacher who's name I believe is Tersa Dank. She made a sign, headed to a busy intersection, and began to panhandle money for school supplies for her students! This lead to a "go fund me" page that has raised thousands already!

Now that's what I call "thinking out the box"!

I'd like to give a shout out to that young man in the Texan football club who donated his first NFL paycheck to people who lost their homes and cars to the hurricane that devastated Texas. That was a very tenderhearted thing for that young man to do and I think it was incredibly generous to help people who he didn't even know at all. What a brave young man!

This woman was WAY AHEAD and had oblivious won the game, so she threw the next two rounds and gave the other two contestants chances to win some cash as well! This was on Wheel of Fortune btw!

I came across an great article about an Canadian barber who ended up laying on the floor beside an autistic child, so the child could get an haircut!

Franz Jacob, an barber in Quebec, Canada was featured by the online media outlet, The Good News Network, this past week.

What a great story!

Can we give am shout out to 65 year old Earl Melchert, of Minnesota????

Earl Melchert saved the life of an.kidnapped young girl, who managed to run away from her three captors, by swimming across the lake to safety....the safety of the home of Earl Melchert, who got police to come out right away!

Police presented him with the reward money of $7,000, but instead, took the kidnapped girl.and her parents out to dinner and gave the reward money to the girl and her parents.

That's what I call, Doing The Right Thing!
