This is in response to the article in the Chronicle Independent on Friday, July 20, 2012. County Council Vice Chairman Sammie Tucker Jr. was quoted as saying he did not have "ready access" to a computer. Thus the reason he had not filed appropriate paperwork for his position on Kershaw County Council. I would like to take this opportunity to inform Mr. Tucker that we, Kershaw County, have a public library with "ready access" to computers. The hours are as follows:

It is truly "unthinkable" that the Kershaw County Democratic Party would certify Sammie Tucker Jr. as a candidate for public office. To entertain that idea is ludicrous! To readily admit to people that he is not only an incumbent candidate for office but is actually the current Kershaw County Council Vice Chairman should be embarrassing to all citizens of Kershaw County.

I write this based on a fear for the well-being and future of America. If I am wrong, somebody set me straight, please. The historian philosopher Arnold Toynbee said, "Civilizations die from suicide, not murder, and start to decay when they lose their moral fiber and the cultural elite turns parasitic, exploiting the masses."
