King of the Reading Club to Be Dethroned by Egalitarian
After liberals have deleted every word that could conceivably be construed as racist from our vocabulary, they will go after other words they don’t like — such as “merit”:
Tyler Weaver calls himself “the king of the reading club” at Hudson Falls Public Library. But now it seems Hudson Falls Public Library Director Marie Gandron wants to end his reign and have him dethroned.
The 9-year-old boy, who will be starting fifth grade next month, won the six-week-long “Dig into Reading” event by completing 63 books from June 24 to Aug. 3, averaging more than 10 a week.
He has consistently been the top reader since kindergarten, devouring a total of 373 books over the five contests, according to his mother, Katie. …
Katie said she is “extremely proud” of her sons’ accomplishments, especially Tyler for having held his title for this long.
“I’ve told them God makes all of us different. There are some things that are hard and some that are easy, but they should excel at what they enjoy doing and Tyler just loves to read,” she said. “Everybody he tells, he gets high-fives. Everybody’s so proud of him.”
Everybody, it seems, but Gandron, who was surprised to learn Katie notified a Post-Star reporter about her son being a longtime winner. During a phone call Tuesday to Gandron, the library director said Tyler “hogs” the contest every year and he should “step aside.”
“Other kids quit because they can’t keep up,” Gandron said.
Gandron further told the reporter she planned to change the rules of the contest so that instead of giving prizes to the children who read the most books, she would draw names out of a hat and declare winners that way.
Soon liberals will consolidate their totalitarian grip on sports, and we will no longer have to worry about excellent teams causing other teams to quit because they can’t keep up. Champions would be chosen at random, except that might allow lucky teams to have an advantage. More likely, the championship for all sports will rotate, so everyone is guaranteed a turn. That way no one will have their feelings hurt, and no one will have to exert any effort.
