Why I’m Not A Journalist
It was 5% not 15%. That was a significant difference that a journalist wouldn’t get wrong. And, that fact alone would make the previous blog I wrote better if not for the fact that it wasn’t the only inaccuracy.
I was told – not by anybody official – that there was 200 signatures turned in. So, it seemed safe to surmise that the required number – in the 150 range – would be met. It wasn’t.
I won’t comment on the true number that was reached because I would most likely get that wrong too. But, it did fall short of the required number.
The Stafford County Hospital folks, as well as Stafford County residents in general, should be very happy with this morning’s news – but also realize that another chance for success is probably the last chance.
And, I promise to refrain from writing about numbers forever more.
