Just what could be wrong with the goats

Kathryn Bullington - Silverthorne

In response to Jim Oberheide’s letter regarding the slacking goats: I was horrified and felt I must respond.Several things come to mind that I think need to be addressed that Jim didn’t think out.First, the goats that were lying down could have a bit of altitude sickness. Dr. Oberheide, of all people, should have considered that. Also, some of those goats sitting down on the job could actually aspire to different careers and be rather despondent about their lack of choice and forced labor.Could it be that they are members of Ralph Nader’s party and don’t believe in destroying the environment. Or were they on their breaks?This leads me to wonder if the goats are unionized. Maybe they were on strike over the quality of noxious weeds they were supposed to eat. I wonder if the goats are documented, or have work permits. Has Homeland Security done background checks?It seems to be the goats have it pretty good with free meals beside our beautiful reservoir – free transportation and lodging provided.Yes, comparing this to the previous governance of Chicago, this ranks right up there and could ultimately be the undoing of Summit County.Since we are dealing with slackers, maybe the solution is to send over a motivational speaker. Maybe they need a better supervision, such as a border collie with PMS.
