A Reader on "The War"/How Dumb Does Mitchell-Hollingsworth Think the Public?

We've had some very positive comments on Southern Son's blog...and we've had some which were not as complimentary. The following comment comes from a very erudite friend of ours. Our apologies for taking a few days to post:

When the Southern Son is not watching reruns of Gone With the Wind, binging on Fox News, or genuflecting to Donald Trump, he may wish to consider comments made by Alexander Stephens, Vice President of the Confederate States of America, when the new country was established. “Its (the Confederacy) cornerstone rest upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.” There are plenty of other similar quotes from Southern leaders about the purpose of the War. I am confident, however, the Southern Son won’t be persuaded. He knows what he believes and no amount of evidence to the contrary will change it. 

Frustrated History Teacher

The above statement should give each of us something to consider. 



Now, let's take another look at Mitchell-Hollingsworth. That institution has issued statements to WAAY TV and Pen-N-Sword. The director is calling what has been reported as a patient rape an "incident."

As we understand it, even if the patient had consented to some sort of sex act with the male CNA, it would still have been rape since the patient was not mentally capable of consenting. The patient reportedly suffered a broken wrist and other injuries. Doesn't sound too consensual, does it?

We're sure there are some kind, caring, and proficient employees at Mitchell. The CNA who raped the patient Thursday night was obviously not one of them. Should he have been weeded out before now? We are hearing horror stories about the HR department at Mitchell. How has it come to this?

If we were the patient's family, we would soon own Mitchell-Hollingsworth and sell it to UNA for an addition (it abuts the campus on the west side). We would also be demanding to know how many other patients this CNA has abused/raped, either at Mitchell or his previous jobs.

Is there a criminal/deviant gene? When we hear of incidents like the one at Mitchell we have to believe there is.
