Letter: Rep. Koppelman is on the stringI read Rep. Kim Koppelman’s, R-West Fargo, commentary in the Sept. 25 Forum. My response to the North Dakota DUI issue is, it was another “Jose Greco” performance by Koppelman. Greco was a flamenco dancer, and a flamenco dancer’s performance is lots of foot-stomping, hand-clapping and vocal cord noises.
Damn it, do something in the Legislature regarding the DUI issue instead of blowing warm smoke up our collective empennages.
I am reminded of the German word “Hampelman,” which is a puppet having a long string hanging down between its legs, and when the string is pulled down, the legs and arms move up. Similarly, when the liquor lobby pulls the string on Koppelman, he reacts in their favor.
