SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

I have a slight revision to make to Al Jacobs’ Straight Talk column in the Jan. 15 issue. Rather than titling the column “The Horse’s Mouth,” he should change it to “The Horse’s Ass.”
His contention that “the principal reason public corporations exist is so their officers and directors can draw benefits from them” is strange and wrong. He provides no examples or evidence to support his view, despite advising readers in the next paragraph that “most of what life is about is attending to the details.”
Once I stopped laughing, I had to put pen to paper just to point out this unusual assertion. I still look forward to seeing the DP Times in my driveway every week!
