Look what I found in my mailbox from five years ago

Some things never change.

Since I don't "do" blogs, I'd rather that you not post my reply. That would require me to start to follow and possibly respond to others. It just isn't something that I feel the need to do.

I removed the other folks because I don't think they would need or want to be bothered by this kind of dialog. I did include you since you had sent the original email.

Nancy, I am not sure if I was to receive this since you had removed other email addresses from your reply. Of all the people I sent my letter to, your response was the only one I received personally.
Because you don't read my blog, I should tell you that Kim Ressler responded on my blog. Thank you for your response, Kim.

Do I have your permission to publish your response? If not, I do understand.

I copied Chief McDonough so that he is in the loop.

I must be missing something. PTSA warns parents that they may get a ticket if they disobey the drop-off rules on Lebanon….and somehow that translates into an apology being owed to someone? All ML PTAs have a long history of notifying parents of unsafe drop-off / parking / driving situations around the schools. Telling people to observe the road signage rarely results in a widespread habit change ~ but telling them that a ticket might be forthcoming often does the trick. The mentioned eblast is no different than countless messages that have been sent to parents over the years at the various schools. I don’t read this blog so I don’t know the history of what these folks are complaining about. Seems like they have it in for Council PTA and PTSA for some reason. Thankfully that doesn’t affect our day to day operations. We will just keep doing the best that we can in our volunteer capacities and hope that the bloggers can manage to get past their grudge.

Dear Mt. Lebanon PTA Council and Mt. Lebanon High School PTSA,

I think you know how I feel by reading this.;postID=3683433117241749776&page=1&token=1334010818566
I believe the PTA owes an apology to the Mt. Lebanon Police Department and the rest of the community.
