Doing the right thing can get you in trouble

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

The new philosophy: “Kill the messenger.”

If you’re a corrupt politician, blame the press. They’re wrong, not you.

If you’re trying to look out for your neighbors you have known all your life, you’re at risk looking like or made out to be foolish.

If a person almost wrecks into you running a stop sign, forget about it. Don’t try to identify them or you might get into trouble.

When someone almost runs you over walking your dog by running a stop three times, blame the dog for needing exercise.

If I look foolish calling the police every time I see a suspicious vehicle, so be it. Better safe than sorry.

I appreciate the consideration to do right and be a concerned citizen and taxpayer, too.
