Local drivers, knowing where they are going within a 50-mile radius, have no need to know what mile markers they pass, thus pay no attention to them, then are not sure where the mile markers are when advised by weather forecasters to heed them.
If we were ever attacked by another country, we would defend ourselves, and immediately attack the aggressor and justly declare war on them. Now, if we involve ourselves in Syria's civil war, then we are opening ourselves up to whatever we get in return. I am not willing to risk even one valuable American life to help anyone in Syria.
Bombing another nation is an act of war. If you don't want our nation to start yet another illegal war of aggression, you have about a week to contact your senators and congressperson and tell them so.
Holgerson says the team is trying to find their identity? They are the WVU football team, and we expect them to win. There is your identity.
The people setting up "road blocks" to raise money for the festival queens and other fundraisers: You are a traffic hazard. Is the little money you make worth causing an accident?
I found John McCoy's Sunday column "It's open season for opening fire" amusing as he attempted to wax poetic regarding the numerous hunting seasons in West Virginia. He could have saved some time and effort by just using the redneck vernacular "Boys, let's get out there and kill something!"
If each of the 535 members of Congress is allowed to pontificate for 30 minutes before a vote is taken on whether to bomb or not, it may be December before it happens. Several million-dollar missiles will then be dropped on targets that are no longer where they were.
I am a white 54-year-old male. I have read nearly everything printed in the Gazette by Leonard Pitts. I have never been offended by his writing, nor have I ever found it to be racist.
Assuming poison gas was used in Syria, why will no U.S. politician and no U.S. media outlet even consider that it may have been done by the U.S., or Israel, or Saudi Arabia, or Qatar in order to bring about U.S. military action?
Bray Cary is not a reporter or good interviewer. He is a rich station owner who books his guests, like Capito or Morrissey, to simply provide them with free campaign publicity. Who controls the airtime can control the voters.
