Criteria shouldn’t include education

Dear Editor,

A couple of weeks ago, you published an article concerning the salary scale of the Greenwood Mayor which left me puzzled. Frankly, I could not understand a word of it. I am pleased to see the mess is to be revised or rethought. I would question why education is one of the criteria to be considered. There are many self-made men who have risen to the top of their profession and have become admirable citizens through commonsense, honesty and diligence to duty. Heck, I know of a man who is a Harvard graduate and professor who is so dumb he destroyed an entire nation and a big part of the world in just a few short years with a little help from his friends.

Thank you,
