Perhaps Manchin should also consider his direct connection to the firing of Dr. Jorea Marple as an explanation for his decline in the polls. The majority of West Virginia teachers have not, nor will not, forget this slight. It will be a motivating factor in how teachers vote in future elections.
The Marshall halftime video is comical. They had to go back to the Moss era for most of the highlight shots and even then still not enough to fill the entire video. Half the video is just a shot of a big M.
Test scores in English might be improved if commercials used correct grammar. Teachers can't do it all. Students learn by example more than textbooks. If the English language is spoken correctly in the home, it will be reflected in test scores. There are many teachable moments.
Why can't religions agree that there are many paths to heaven instead of each saying their path is the only one? Wouldn't a compassionate God want all of his children to be with him, no matter what path they took? Or am I trying to apply reason to groups that don't want to consider that God may love others not like them?
It's funny watching Obama outmaneuver the Republicans. Now they can have their say on whether to attack Syria or not, and they'll be wrong no matter what they decide.
The Syrians in our area wanting the U.S. to attack their country remind me of conservatives who are always wanting us to attack another country, as long as they are not the ones doing the fighting.
The person who said George W. Bush was respected by our allies and feared by our enemies has spent far too much time listening to drug-addict Rush Limbaugh. Bush was a laughingstock among our allies and Osama bin Laden probably couldn't believe his good fortune that he had someone in the White House so dumb.
I would have thought the problem with the weather forecasters using the Interstate mile marker as a reference point would have been obvious. 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 they are not sure where the mile markers are when advised by weather forecasters to heed them.
Please, Mr. West Virginia Turnpike commissioner, pave between mile post 71 and 76 southbound before cold weather sets in.
