Ha. Hungry children don't learn as well as other children. If people really knew how much school food is thrown away, they would be shocked. Children won't eat what they don't like.
Gun shows are not for neighbors who want to exchange guns. They are for gun dealers who want to display and sell their wares without the bother of acquiring licenses or performing background checks for buyers. This should be reason enough for licensed dealers to support universal background checks.
With the tiny Mediterranean island of Cyprus in the news this past week, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that it is the birthplace of the mythical love goddess Aphrodite. Bless her heart.
On the Opinion page of Thursday's Gazette, a headline reads "Moral answer to budget crisis: Rich much pay their share." What does that mean? I think someone relied too much on computer software to detect and correct spelling. "Much" is a real word and would not be replaced by "must."
Mr. Ed Rabel in Thursday's op-ed expressed in writing what my family and I have only talked about for a long time. Thank you Mr. Rabel.
I am becoming sickened by the holier than thou comments concerning same sex marriage. As a society we should welcome any committed, loving and monogamous relationship.... To give all people the same rights and responsibilities is only right in our great nation.
Most law-abiding citizens and NRA members do not agree with the fanatics pushing all the new gun bills. The legislators who kiss up to NRA need kicked out.
Speed is everything, from the telephone operator required to give a number in 20 seconds to the news anchor's spitting out garbled news in a half hour. Frontier's Internet costing millions has a real stench. As slow now as when Internet service first arrived. Who got the money? Who agreed to this? Do I get a refund?
Concerning computer passwords, those of us who have served in the military can use designations of our old outfits as passwords.... They are easy to remember and somewhat secure. You're welcome.
Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky was found dead on the floor of his bathroom in Britain. An autopsy says his death was "consistent with hanging." British authorities are saying they have "no evidence of foul play." So how did Boris get himself down after he hanged himself?
I believe that county school systems are reimbursed by the state for substitute pay. That certainly would negate the poor mouthing the Kanawha County superintendent is doing. And it would also make sense as to why he uses full-time subs instead of hiring certified teachers.
A lot of people who believe the Bible are under the misguided belief that everyone should and if you do not then you are somehow morally inferior to them. They are also under the misguided impression that our government should use the Bible as its moral compass.... Religion of any type has absolutely no place in government.
I agree with the editorial by Ed Rabel. Our local news does not really cover any news. They do nothing that really informs the public about all the issues on any one subject. The owners of the stations only want to show whatever their leanings are.
Next month the George W. Bush presidential library will open. I hope they have dedicated a portion of it to the 4,500-plus Americans who died in the Iraq war. This war was unnecessary and accomplished absolutely nothing.
