Future Poet Laureate Mike Polensek
Councilman Mike Polensek’s letter to a “crack dealing piece of trash”
has become an international sensation. He made it on FOXNews.com
, The Smoking Gun
, and even the Greater Boston Nepali Community site
And yesterday, he was on the BBC radio show “World Have Your Say,” which gave listeners from Detroit to Zambia a chance to weigh in on the councilman’s choice of adjectives. You can listen to the show, and read some of the funnier online comments, here
. One of my favorites comes from someone in our fair Verona by the Lake:
To the Brainiac known as Michael D. Polensek,
What on earth were you thinking Polensek? I understand the frustration of having drug dealers in my neighborhood, but you tarnished your credibility as a professional politician while gloating like a large, verbally incontinent child! With any luck, you'll apologize and hopefully resign before the weekend to keep everything from hitting the fan. Next time use your brain ... Better yet take a creative writing class and don't use city stationary for your personal vendetta's.
