COAST coordinator would make a good politician

How come so many of the self-proclaimed “good” people – the social engineers and saviors – are usually the most arrogant and condescending folks in our little world? Case in point, 2008 COAST Coordinator Casey Shanley. She can’t simply state her views about LNG ports and the environmental issues at hand. No, she and her organization must ” … educate both beachgoers and local residents on current issues.” They are enlisting “volunteers [to] educate shore residents and visitors …”

Ms. Shanley, some of us who live here are quite well educated. Your assumption that people

who don’t flock to your bandwagon are simply less aware, less sensitive, less educated to the issues than you are is pure snobbery and arrogance. You’d make a great politician.
