It would seem we have lost an icon of our community in the dismissal of Dick Pust, general manager at KGY Radio.
What a ripoff.
I hope he does choose to go for the mayor’s position in Olympia. He is as qualified as any of the other people we have had running for public office — more so than a few others we have had.
I swear, some people wash their face and put on a clean shirt and they believe themselves to be qualified to manage a public office. To make matters worse, we elect them because they talk pretty.
Well, Dick Pust talks prettier than most of the others, and I think he only talks out of one side of his mouth.
In the 40 years I have lived in this community, I have heard a lot of double talk from politicians, and we continue to re-elect them.
So, if Pust does learn to talk out of the other side of his mouth, he will fit right in. And we will be able to continue to vote him back into office like we do all the others who talk pretty to us.
