I found myself involved in a minor Twitter tussle a couple of weeks ago. This followed an unexpected phone call from one Ronald Richards (he’s the new owner of the San Ramon Golf Club, for those who’ve been on some other planet). He called me to complain about my “censoring” the blog by not allowing him to use our forum to promote his agenda. You know, that plan of his to ruin our neighborhoods by putting up a bunch of condos on the present golf course.
Evidently, he wasn’t satisfied by our conversation–he kept insisting that I was violating his First Amendment rights by “censoring” him. Funny, coming from a lawyer.
He did some research about me, found one of my Twitter accounts and tweeted this. This is a long scroll, but worth it:
Then we had a lovely Twitter exchange, along with our own Gene Bucciarelli (GB) never a good idea to tangle with two battle-tested Navy vets…
Mr. Richards has bragged about how happy the neighbors surrounding one of his acquisitions, the Silverstone Golf Course in North Las Vegas are. One of our friends, who lives there, sent us some evidence of what a lovely project he has underway in Las Vegas. Click on the image to see more of the story. H/T to one of the local residents who sent this over to us.
