I am sure most of you remember back in November when I was out on one of my 13+ mile runs and Frank Conaway and I got into an argument that may or may not have involved Frank Conaway’s conceal carry permitted gun. Quite a few ignorant people demanded to know why I was running in Ashburton on a public sidewalk instead of wondering why our Clerk of the Court was at a house of his in the middle of a work day. You may also remember some of the ignorant, crass, and downright anti-Semitic statements some of his supporters made (you can view some here).
In this article there is an interesting quote from the so-called “Reverend” C.D. Witherspoon:
“We are demanding that this be treated seriously,” said the Rev. C.D. Witherspoon, who demanded the city state’s attorney and the state attorney general “look into these threats posed by Mr. Meister to Frank Conaway as terroristic in nature.”
The so-called “Reverend” compares me with a terrorist because I ran by Frank Conaway’s house while he was walking on his front path and we got into a shouting match.
A funny thing happened today when I was completing my jog through Baltimore around 5:45. I stopped at my house and turned on the front porch light. I then ran down my front path so I could run back up my block and down my alley where I planned to enter my house through the back door. A few seconds after exiting my property I saw a man with a small child and a woman walking toward me as I approached the man meekly said hello. The man was C.D. Witherspoon! Yes the very same C.D. Witherspoon who feels it is “terroristic” when a guy like me happens to be on a public sidewalk while a guy walks down his path was on my block on a public sidewalk about to walk by my house as I walked down my path! Does he now consider himself “terroristic”?
I hope the so-called “Reverend” now understands what a coincidence is and realizes that they can happen in Reservoir Hill just as easily as they can happen in Ashburton.
