Column: Bullies need to seek help, regardless of their ages

When the word “bully” is brought up, it usually makes you picture images of kids in school, on the playground or in the cafeteria.

  1. Mr. Meyers, good luck at the Metro Courier. I’ve known of this publication for many years, and I am sorry to say that I have only glanced at its contents on a few occasions. However, I will take a look and possibly subscribe. The great divide between races in our city is very disturbing, Hopefully, you can help and offer our community a chance to quell this divide and begin anew. Journalism remains a powerful tool.

  2. The Metro Courier has been focused on national news with very little local content for the past few years. Hopefully, you will bring more of a local flavor back with your leadership. This is an interesting development and I will be looking forward to what you will do with this new enterprise.

  3. You know what they say about Caesar’s wife. Being above reproach and passing the smell test is what is required of any color if they are in a publicly funded position. I guess you will carry the old war cry that if anyone questions a person of color about their dealings it is racially motivated. Don’t be afraid to call Bobby’s name; I believe you could take him in a fair fight. And if it happens, look for the low blows.

  4. Good grief Michael! If one of your main points from this piece is that the possible wrong has been going on for over three years now, so let’s just continue to ignore the wrong and that will make it right? Wrong! I will continue to depend on others at TAP to shine light where darkness exists, even for over 3 years, and help expose the mass corruption in area politics. Obviously we will never be able to depend on you to do it, either at TAP or at the Metro Courier. You could not even call out your favorite bully commissioner by name in this article.

  5. I agree the points the author of this opinion piece are confusing, and I don’t quite follow the “word salad”, as someone else commented either.
    The one thing I agree on is Bobby Williams acting like a rude child throwing tantrums on the taxpayer’s time!
