A council of Mumpowers

I was thrilled to read that Carl Mumpower intends to endorse a liberal slate of candidates in the 2012 state and federal elections [“Mountain ‘X’ Should Change Its Name to Mountain ‘L,’” Oct. 12 Xpress]. Of course he's right. There are far too few liberals in almost every area of elected representation throughout the U.S., so he'll be wanting to set that balance right. That is what he meant, wasn't it?

I know I'll be reading the liberal point of view in his weekly screeds too — one shouldn't have a conservative perspective every week when there are so many other perspectives to choose from.

This liberal thinker, being an expert in the reality which Carl is apparently still taking lessons about, might point out that what's really bothering him is that his authentic mission is to have Asheville's City Council made up entirely of Mumpowers.
