  • To the Editor, As an "outsider", I read with disgust, the story regarding Jason Priest. I pity his children that were witness to his behavior. I am only glad that his young child was not hurt by his attack. At least not physically. I am sure that the emotional damage will surface later. I am disgusted that a man elected to represent the...
