There’s some irony in the argument between Worcester County Commissioners Chip Bertino, Jim Bunting and Diana Purnell, with the former two accusing Purnell of making disparaging comments about veterans and law enforcement at last week’s Maryland Association of Counties conference.

The ironic twist is that both sides call for reasoned discussions of sensitive issues for the good of everyone, and yet here we are.

Unfortunately, the politics of today dictate that some subjects are now off limits, and we’d rather go on about that than simply sit down and talk about it.
