Alright, Mason County. We got beef. Have a seat.
First, I speak on behalf of everyone when I say thank you for giving us Darius Miller, Deron Feldhaus, Tomlin, Hubby, and Pasquale’s pizza. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We’ll even thank you for Chris Lofton and Ye Olde Dutch Inn, too. But it’s what you recently took away from us that is the problem. And it’s a big problem.
Multiple people have contacted us today saying the Mason County school board has blocked KentuckySportsRadio.com from all servers, computers, handhelds, and other Internet connections and devices. We don’t like that. If you don’t want your students and faculty browsing KSR, then that’s your problem. Don’t punish those fine people for wanting to read Aaron’s UK Basketball Links during daylight hours. It’s only natural to want to know what Shabazz Muhammad is tweeting while you’re in freshman Biology. It’s human nature.
I’ll use a quote from your website, if you don’t mind:
“For over two hundred years, the good people of Mason County have shared a common cause and friendship with the people throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”
That two hundred years ended today. No longer can those within the walls of a Mason County school building share a common cause and friendship with people throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. No longer can they get online and compete with people from Frankfort, Paducah, Middlesboro, and Madisonville to see who can be the first to write “first” in the comments section. You took that away from them.
Your website also says:
“The Mason County Elected Officials welcome you to our area.”
Lies. All lies. Obviously, we’re not welcome, and we just want to know why. You owe us an explanation — if not for us, for one of this country’s Founding Fathers.
Your county is named after George Mason, a leader of those who pressed for the addition of explicit States rights. State rights, like, leaving a comment on the Afternoon Notes or saying “this post sucks” every time we try to be funny. State rights, like, wanting to know what’s happening around the state’s premier basketball program and wanting to know about it in the most ridiculous manner possible.
George Mason would be ashamed of you right now. No, George Mason would be disgusted. His own county has shunned the very thing he fought for.
Make it right, Mason County School Board.
Undo this heinous criminal act that you’ve done.
