I wonder how the "War of Words" will play out for those who "post" on this bit
of news?? The battle between Liberals Vs Conservatives, Commies Vs Fascists,
dittoheads Vs Socialists, Etc Vs Etc. Did I forget any label to give to your
opponent?? A MADD background is sure to make many mad.
I wonder how much Mr. Hurley knows about bridge safety, highway snow fences,
traffic control devices and other major infrastructure which makes our highways
safe? It seems to me that while being passionate about alcohol and drug abuse
behind the wheel may be important, it certainly would not qualify him for all
the other criteria required for this position! I would liken Mr.
Hurley's appointment to hiring a minister to be the superintendent of a
construction project. That minister might very well manage to establish a good
and moral work-ethic on the project, but the quality of the structure,
coordination of subcontractors, and suppliers would probably all be
compromised.I would suggest Mr. Hurley be hired as head of a branch
of the department and serve under a director who's qualifications are much more
well-rounded. I fear that putting such a nominee in charge would net us an
overall decline in quality and safety of our nation's highway system.
