Gerald Gerads, Sartell
Throughout the years, I suppose I have read almost all of Ron Scarbro’s columns. Some were confusing, some frustrating, some scary (like the one where his solution to the problems with North Korea was to nuke ’em!), but they all are, in their own way, interesting. Just like his column on April 25.
As a contemporary of Ron, I could identify with growing up with the fear of the “Red Menace.” As a fellow citizen, I can identify with the frustration of watching the preening leader of the Russian Federation flaunt the international community as he tries to regain territory on his borders.
So he really had me as I rushed toward the end of his column. Right up to the last sentence: “Let’s stop this aggression now.” Did the editor cut off the end of the article? I was waiting for the big reveal, the solution to this dilemma. WWRD? What Would Ron Do? How would he show this hopelessly overwhelmed President how to tame the Russian bear? But just like all of the other critics of President Obama, there was no solution, no alternative. Unless the answer is, “Nuke ’em!”
Let me quote another commercial, Ron: “Where’s the beef”?
