"The politics will not be discussed here as they are private".
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Schultz. I believe in his methods. Having said this, I must ask WHY the politics will not be discussed? And by whose injunction will they not be discussed? I am a firm believer in the First Amendment. Perhaps if you told me that a gag order was in place, I would understand your quote; but I must say (with no disrespect intended, nor wishing to cause discord) this statement is a tad authoritarian. If Mr. Mantz refuses to discuss the situation, perhaps somebody else will enlighten us. "WILL NOT BE DISCUSSED" leads to the simple question: WHY?
Again, it is not my wish to cause any disharmony. Thank you.
