Tandy Falls is now Tandy Dry Falls. Looking at the picture you would never guess that a couple months ago this was a roaring waterfall.
Change of subject.
I am in a bit of a foul mood today. I am sort of annoyed at the people of Fort Worth.
Well, some of the people of Fort Worth.
When the Paradise Center Scandal erupted over a month ago I thought this was such an obviously wrong that even this justice-challenged part of America would get that a BIG WRONG was done. And insist it be fixed.
In all my years of doing the blogging thing I've never been inundated with as many comments to various bloggings as I have been over the Paradise Center Scandal. I thought I'd move it all to a Paradise Center Scandal Blog, but a lot of the commenting is still coming in to this blog.
What really annoyed me today were incoming comments from MHMR "cons."
Cons is the term one of today's sane commenters used. As in pros and cons, with the Paradise Center and Teresa Davis being the "pros" and the MHMR people and their little man leader, Jim McDermott, being the "cons."
I would hope, but know it won't happen, that "con" in this case will eventually come to also mean "convict."
Just minutes ago I got a long comment from Scandal Madness Fan.
The first sentence is an indicator that there are decent people in Fort Worth who can tell the difference between right and wrong....
"Wow, the lack of civility and decency shown by the commenters against (the "cons") this Teresa lady and her small but brave group of people leaves me and my family wondering what has happended to these cons to make them so hateful."
Good question. Methinks mental illness may be running rampant in the Mental Health Mental Retardation Tarrant County Agency.
But, then again, I have reason to think there is some sanity inside that organization. Someone claiming to be inside the MHMR organization has been sending me info. Including one very damning email written by MHMR CEO Jim McDermott.
I have been sort of confused as to what to make of much of what I've been sent. It all sort of wears me out.
Which makes me think I'm going to go swimming and not think about it for awhile.
