An ‘un­der­handed ploy’

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

The Edi­tor, When, on the eve of the High­land Games long week­end, I learned of SD&G Li­brary Board Chair­man Bill McGimpsey's un­der­handed ploy to close the Dalkeith li­brary along with two oth­ers within lit­tle more than a month, what im­me­di­ately came to mind were words ut­tered in 1933 by the Ger­man Im­pres­sion­ist painter Max Lieber­mann.

Asked how he felt about the cur­rent purge by the Nazis of artists they dis­ap­proved of (which in­cluded him), he replied: “One can't gob­ble up as much as one would like to puke.”
