I read that BrickStreet is giving $4 million to WVU. It made me sad, because the Morgantown university has mountains of money, while West Virginia State University and Tech at Montgomery -- here in the Kanawha Valley -- need donations a lot more.
Some believe gun "control" means a loss of liberty. But the real loss of liberty happens when libraries close. Knowledge is power and access to knowledge is what ensures freedom.
The cookies aren't evil. It's being a glutton and laziness that's evil.
There's an old saying, "If you can't play with the big dogs, you should stay on the porch." I do believe that WVU left the porch a bit too early.
I would love to see Charlotte Pritt run for Rockefeller's Senate seat.
Republicans have never done anything about abortion in the 40 years it's been legal. A big group of prominent Republican politicians came out in support of gay marriage this week and today over 200 corporations, which are almost always Republican, came out in support of gay marriage.

I pray daily that the Defense of Marriage Act is struck down. Defense of Marriage? Defending it from what? Monogamous, loving couples wanting to get married?

If they really want to eliminate some of the waste in our government then one of the biggest budget cuts should come from the office of Congress, and members, along with other welfare recipients, should be drug-tested.
Why do so many of our state leaders disregard the need to maintain clean water resources? Do they all have second homes in other states?
