Kudos to Tom Fulks for shining a light on a dark place in our community (“Do we really live in the ‘happiest place’ in America? Ha! As if … ” May 6).
Folks were outraged. It was as if the whole community had been assaulted. Now it is official: arsonists torched a project to provide housing for Mexican farmworkers, leaving nothing but ashes.
Judging from the lack of response, we are OK with that. Nothing to see here; just move on. It’s only Page 3 news.
Apparently, this is what have we come to.
Some have accused Mr. Fulks of propagating hate. I suggest they look in a mirror.
Our own humanity requires people with sufficient courage to call out the trolls, bullies and bigots and, yes, the arsonists who impose their own idea of righteousness under cover of darkness.
