Recently, Gov. William Donald Schaefer used a profane remark to describe the quality of life on the Eastern Shore. He also has written strong and personally insulting letters to private citizens who have expressed disagreement with his policies.
Some believe that the governor is just plain rude. Others believe he has the right to freely express his opinion to those who might disagree with him.
What about you?
Is the governor rude or just giving critics what they deserve?
