Apologies are flowing from a local Rotary Club for a tirade launched last Monday lunch by a “Dick’s Blog” ex-buddy. He offered all kinds of opinions — most of which he had absolutely no factual basis of support — and then proceeded to essentially repeat the same insulting, mean-spirited, malicious attacks on the Mayor he has previously posted on his seven person fan-blog.
The people who selected this guy to speak knew what he was going to say. They also knew that what he would say would violate The Four-Way Test of Rotary. It had to embarrass most of their members and they had to be mildly (if not more so) disgusted that the speaker used their club for his own selfish political goals.
The club might want to consider an apology to the Mayor…
Unless, of course, this is a different brand of Rotary.
