Letter: Thanks for making Enid a laughingstock

ENID, Okla. — Four proud supporters of human rights on the Enid City Commission voted recently in favor of discrimination against gays and lesbians in Enid’s employment policy. This, Dr. Vanhooser informs us, is because that’s “what the community wants.”

If that’s really what Enid stands for, let’s take it a step further. We can post signs at the city limits saying “Welcome to the friendly city of Enid. Gays and lesbians keep out!”

Come to think of it, I bet we citizens could easily come up with a list of other undesirable types to discourage from come here: carpetbaggers, wine sippers, brie munchers, bald men, Quakers, proctologists, Krishna cultists, tree huggers, French people, cross-eyed women, Kress facade conservationists, jackbooted organ grinders, congressmen and so on.

Thanks a lot, Messrs. Shewey, Timm, Vanhooser and Stuber, for branding Enid as a reactionary, one-horse, medieval, redneck laughingstock.
