    MINISTER A HYPOCRITE

    Minister a Hypocrite

    Werewolves Are Too Dangerous to Be Kept Secret

    I was appalled to read the statement of Minister Balthazar Urquart in the paper several days ago, after reading the news about his daughter on Sunday. Of course, my thoughts and prayers are with the Minister and his poor family as they deal with this terrible tragedy, but one thing in his statement disturbed me--his line about condemning whoever had given this news to the Prophet in the first place. Why does the Ministry have a werewolf registry at all, if not to prevent these exact tragedies from occurring? Yet when the question was put in more personal terms, the Minister himself apparently would have preferred to keep it a secret!

    This sort of negligence and hypocrisy is what allows werewolves to roam free and attack poor _____________________________________________________________
    children. If the Minister does not have faith in the Ministry's registry system, perhaps he should do something to fix it, instead of perpetuating the problem. While he was casually flaunting the rules he himself was elected to uphold, he has been putting all of our children at risk, as well! How many other Irvingly residents were unnecessarily put in danger by not knowing that there was a werewolf rampant in that area during the last full moon?

    Minister Urquart ought to be ashamed of himself, for being so selfish and careless of the citizens he was elected to lead and protect!
