To the editor: Does self-proclaimed southern belle Julie Bryant (letter to the editor, Feb. 14) consider herself the southern belle who always calls before she comes over, never states opinion around the men-folk, and gets her way through re-arranging the truth and manipulation?
How fondly I remember those ladies as I sat alone in my room every holiday due to the involuntary internment caused by my latest case of “civil disobedience.”
It would seem my method of protesting about having to do the massive stacks of dinner dishes, while my brothers were allowed to sit around the TV watching the sport of the season, did not please my southern belle mother.
You see, I would stand in the middle of the room and fuss at their lazy butts.
But I must say to Miss Julie, I also know and admire Sheriff Ron Hewett, but I completely understand where you are coming from. All southern belles must unite to stomp out other women who stand up for people in public, defend justice and dare question how our government is spending our tax dollars. How rude and ignorant can they get?
I never thought about corruption before. How about this story? Maybe the sheriff has made too many arrests of drug dealers and criminals. So whoever is behind this investigation could have connections to the underworld?
It sounds like that movie “Walking Tall.” Wasn’t that a true story?
Poor Miss Julie, I am sorry that after 32 years in law enforcement your grandfather never made full sheriff.
I think I had a grandfather or great-grandfather who was sheriff of Durham or Orange County. I don’t remember anything about them, but all my life I have had a keen insight into law, but never understood where it came from.
Since that happened to you, too, I now know. Thank you.
About your letter, I value your opinion. It was very interesting. Now if you had been right about all you said, I would have agreed with you. As Celia Rivenbark would say, “Bless your heart.”
I have enough southern belle ingrained in me that when you attack a person I know to be true and honest, not only will I advise you to pack a lunch and prepare for a long journey, I’ll happily make that lunch for you.
