Admin The Downey Patriot

Soul of the city

Dear Editor:
Socrates said he wanted to be a gadfly biting the lazy horse, Athens, to action. We are lucky to have that gadfly Lawrence Christon, irritating as his bite may be.
He has been successful in getting us Downeyites to examine our attitude and achievements regarding the arts. Your printing his thoughtful and carefully researched articles has been a tremendous public service.
If we don’t like being bitten, let’s see what we can do about the situation. Nobody likes the gadfly, but it gets the horse’s attention.
