I agree with the writer who suggested our world would be a much better place if people simply did the jobs they are paid to do.
There should be more speeches in public schools on abstinence. It sure would help solve the problems of unwanted pregnancies, abortions, and sexually transmitted diseases among teenagers. Also would save on medical expenses and condoms.
The Boston bomber has been charged with two federal counts of using a weapon of mass destruction.

I think they ought to change the name from home rule to screw the citizens rule.
West Virginia Promise scholarship: West Virginia has broken its promise. Now instead of requiring 12 hours of classes, they're requiring 15 trying to make all students fail or lag behind in one or more classes and they don't want to pay for the fifth year.
It would be completely wrong if the Public Service Commission let Appalachian Power have a penny raise to cut the brush back. Their CEO makes over $50 million a year. Take the money from him.
Why would we give the power company a rate increase for trimming the trees? Trimming the trees will save them from paying overtime in the wintertime to fix downed lines where the trees fell.
Law enforcement was awesome in Boston. I'm so proud to be an American.
Creating a favorable business climate in West Virginia is not the role of the attorney general.
