Someone In Yankton Doesn't Have A Foot Fetish

That person may also need corrective lenses. I suggest that he or she drink a bit of warm milk and take some Ambien. I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I do know that lack of sleep blurs one's vision and makes one irritable.

The Yankton School District has hired a new counselor, Tiffany Kashas, to help develop drug and alcohol prevention programs and help students who suffer from substance abuse. The Woksape, the school newspaper profiled Ms. Kashas and the programs she is beginning. The profile was accompanied by the following photo.

An unknown enlightened citizen, presumably one who keeps track of those who wear white after Labor Day, saw fit to send Ms. Kashas a note taking her to task for not wearing shoes and complaining that her bare feet were disgusting.

Far be it from me to criticize a person for his or her fetishes or lack thereof. I also don't claim the right to arbitrate fashion.

I would like to point out that Ms. Kashas is wearing sandals. I would also like to remind the anonymous person who sent her the letter criticizing her wardrobe that the young'uns don't trust the folks in  formal suits. They are much more likely to trust a young person who dresses and talks like a young professional.  Finally, isn't having programs to help students more important than whether a young woman wears sandals? (That's a rhetorical question, an accepted literary device in situations such as this.)

So allow me to offer the following advice to the anonymous person.
  1. Get your eyes checked. Buy some readers. They are a cheap alternative to prescription glasses.
  2. Cut back of the caffeine and lighten up! Seriously, whether another human being wears sandals is enough to rile you up?
  3. Concentrate on what's important: you know, helping kids avoid or confront drug abuse.
  4. Keep you fetish preferences or lack thereof to yourself.
  5. Have the guts to sign your name to every letter you send or don't send it.
