To The Editor:
Paula Deen, Mark Wahlburg, gay marriage, prop 8, Kates baby bump: Who cares?
I would like to see a little more interest in the repair of our roads, a bit more getting together of Congress, the passing of a decent farm bill, immigration reform and having a sensible tax structure which would give everyone a fair shake.
There are other things on my mind than the ones above. I grew up when blacks were N,s, Italians were D.s, Mexicans were G.s, Germans were K.s, Norwegians were B-Heads, Jews were K.s. I lived through the devastating World War 2, spent time in Korea during that conflict from 1950 to 1951 and came through it, I think, very well.
What I see now is the apathy of the majority of the American people concerning what is happening in the Middle East. Is our main interest in these countries the greed for oil, terrorism, civil rights or some other reason. Makes my stomach turn. Guess I am glad that I dont have too many years left to see our country become a drug loving, bigoted entity.
I guess thats enough for this missal.
