Schaefer offends


A majority of callers to The Evening Sun's SUNDIAL say they believe that Gov. William Donald Schaefer, who recently characterized the quality of life on the Eastern Shore as an outhouse, has been rude.

Of 1,857 callers yesterday, 1,706 (92 percent) said they think Schaefer, who also has written strong and personally insulting letters to private citizens who have disagreed with his policies, has been coarse and discourteous, while 151 (8 percent) of callers said they feel the governor has the right to freely express his opinion to those who might disagree with him.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
