Jol­lies for free

Central Leader - - Letters -

Re­gard­ing $ 35,000 boob bat­tle (Cen­tral Leader, Au­gust 22). It was a great way to spend money.

The coun­cil is func­tion­ing in its cor­rect role in show­ing lead­er­ship of the com­mu­nity.

How any com­mer­cial op­er­a­tion can take over a city’s main street for ad­ver­tis­ing its profit-mak­ing en­ter­prise is be­yond me. How they can do it while pro­mot­ing the degra­da­tion of one gen­der and en­trench­ing misog­y­nis­tic at­ti­tudes is un­be­liev­able.

Could Steve Crow do the same thing by mak­ing money out of dif­fer­ent races or dis­abil­i­ties? Just be­cause a lot of men ap­par­ently get their jol­lies for free does not mean that the wider im­pli­ca­tions for a fair and non vi­o­lent so­ci­ety can be ig­nored. JOHN SUBRITZKY
