Tim Hagan converts to the New Democrat Party



CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cuyahoga County Commissioner Tim Hagan has for decades approved paying for a chaplain to serve the county’s Juvenile Detention Center.

But at a Thursday meeting, Hagan suddenly questioned the concept, wondering aloud whether the religious services might put some youths in an uncomfortable position and why the services aren’t free.

I rather think that kids in Juvie should be put in an uncomfortable position: that of being shown that they are on a collision course with God. Any government expenditure is fair game for examination. But the folks who say “Hire another firefighter for the $58K” are living in a fantasy world. And why has Tim after all these years become a radical on church-state separation?

    “for decades”!? Has he really been a commissioner for that long? Who does he think he is? Robert Byrd?

    Well, “dacades” can be “two”. At least it feels like decades. But soon we won’t have co. commissioners, and maybe not Tim.
