No matter what you think should be done, we have learned as a community that glib one-liners, simple solutions that fail to take in the complexities of the issue and PR stunts are not what is needed.
May we introduce you to Lyle Caldwell, whose seems to think that Mayor Banman’s Chicken Manure Incident was an internet phenomenon which requires just a wee bit of social media PR to solve.
