Dr. Seuss Meets MCEA (Letter to Editor)

Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) aptly described underappreciated Maryland state and county employees and their Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA) protector and advocate, when he wrote, "Horton Hears a Who!" in 1954.
When Horton proclaimed, "Don't give up! I believe in you all! A person's a person, no matter how small!", he also described MCEA's message to downtrodden, disrespected, and discouraged public servants.
And, when, "that one small, extra Yopp put it over. Finally, at last!...Their voices were heard!", it well could have been a description of how each individual state and county employee can make a big difference, perhaps the critical difference, in boosting MCEA's voice and success on behalf of all.
Perhaps Horton says it best when he explained, "Do you see what I mean?...They've proved they ARE persons, no matter how small. And their whole world was saved by the Smallest of All!".
Simply put: It really does takes two: MCEA and YOU!
