Letter: ‘The drums beat on and on with no resolution’

On March 18, the Tribune reported on Carl Hasty’s latest dog and donkey show on the Loop Road. On March 23, the Tribune published Carl Ribaudo’s column, which in part was about the Loop Road.

Carl and Carl are for the Loop Road for the same reasons. So I reckoned they are two peas in a pod.

And I think it odd that they advocate spending a fortune to build a crooked highway when there is now a straight highway that works okay without much delay, with nothing new to pay for. But one can only surmise what are their reasons. However, doctors know it is a mystery how the mind twists and turns on the way to a conclusion.

As a side note: Hasty brags about the 140 meetings he has conducted on the Loop Road at public expense, millions over the years. But that is failure because the drums beat on and on with no resolution.
