Congratulations to Mayor Ralph Becker who announced, as a public official, it was not his place to sponsor or join public protests. Because of hatred and blind prejudice, former Mayor Rocky Anderson never learned this protocol. He set back our tourism and convention business.

Advice to Rocky: Pick a positive cause or a worthy charity to expend your efforts, and quit trying to grab headlines.
