Wow. Yesterday, you’ll recall, I printed a post efzfbdfyit
from the public Facebook page of Montgomery County Councilman Hans Riemer, who was repeating third-hand gossip about the Meitivs from the friend of a neighbor.
How statesman-like. He contended that the friend of a friend had said the Meitivs were a bit “off” and the neighbors had been worried about the Meitiv kids for “years.” (Interestingly, despite all that worry, the kids have been, and remain, perfectly fine. Delightful, in fact.)
Hans RiemerÂ No doubt. I was constantly out under similar circumstances. I think the police and CPS should ignore this family. But I have also heard from parents in the neighborhood that this has been going on since the youngest was a toddler. A ten and a six yearÂ old out free ranging is one thing but a seven and a three year old is another thing. So I do not think the parents are responsible. In any event.. If I did let my kids wander all over silver spring I would sure as heck give them a way to reach me if they got into trouble.h
Third-hand he believes a rumor about a family?Â I suggest that if Mr. Riemer would like to stay out of trouble, he step away from the keyboard. – L.
