AD blasts lawmaker who blasts MSHSAA

Cassville's Athletic Director has blasted Sen. Jane Cunningham, perennial critic of MSHSAA (oh, and socialist healthcare mandates) for weighing in on MSHSAA's decision to declare a D-I signee ineligible for transferring schools too many times.

Thoughts?

For ten points, count the number of spelling and grammatical errors in the letter.

I, for one, found his argument wholly unconvincing for any number of reasons.

Actually, back in the Spring of '09 (Rolla I believe?) there was a math computation tossup which had the answer of x > 9000. That's obviously what Max is referencing, Charles. No memes to troll upon here. :wink:

On topic: His letter almost feels quasi-Stream of Consciousness, at least in the sense that some of his thoughts hold little relevance (particularly his statement against her political views) and aren't well organized. Honestly, it's awfully hard to take him seriously when his letter to a Senator has the syntax of an unedited college admissions essay written at 2am. Unless I'm mistaken, questions are generally supposed to end with question marks. There's nothing wrong with acting on what you believe in, but at least think before you do so.

You're right, in retrospect that's probably worse. WHAT, 9000?!?

With the MO legislature now with a record majority of mostly far-right Republicans, I've been wondering if anything will come of Ms. Cunningham's crusade. Of course, the Missouri legislature is far too concerned with trying to outlaw abortion and adult entertainment establishments to worry about anything even marginally important.
