For John, BLUF: Not all opinions are equal. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Dracut Town Moderator Leo Gaudette took Host George Anthes to task on City Life Friday morning for commenting on Town Meetings without having attended a Town Meeting.
It seemed a little snarky. Professor Anthes teaches Government at UMass Lowell. I am willing to bet dollars to donuts (I wonder if that is still a good ratio, as it was when I was young) that Professor Anthes hasn't "experienced" everything he teaches. What about County Government? At one time Professor Anthes was part of County Government, but in this day and age a young professor might have never experienced County Government here in Eastern Massachusetts, but I would expect him or her to educate students about it.
If direct experience were required to comment, few would be able to speak.
