Letter: Not So Welcome?

State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has claimed that he “welcomes” an ethics investigation into his public (but secret!) $103,000 payoff in the Vito Lopez sexual harassment case, but I wonder if he truly “welcomes” being investigated — any more than:

 

A mouse “welcomes” a cat

 

A defendant “welcomes” a conviction

 

A goalie “welcomes” a goal

 

A student “welcomes” a bad report card

 

An editor “welcomes” an embarrassing typo

 

An ant “welcomes” an anteater

 

A liberal “welcomes” a conservative

 

A giraffe “welcomes” a stiff neck

 

An elephant “welcomes” an earache

 

A teenager “welcomes” a curfew

 

or a farmer «welcomes» a drought
