    Masking the inhumane industry

        Shipping and other associated costs which can be reimbursed: Was this the discussion around the table at your local business?  It could have been, however “they” are not shipping paper or food products, they are shipping human beings!

    The issue of
    our time

        After reading Mr. Howell’s “Liberal Agenda” on June 29, I have to question his definition of morality.
        He supports a candidate who views Medicaid as “a moral imperative” and as the “issue of our time” but slams his opponent because she is against abortion. 55 million. That is the conservative number for the number of legal abortions since Roe v. Wade. But Medicaid is the “issue of our time” in the mind of someone like Mr. Howell.

        The retired D. C. cop who tried to respond to my recent letter starts by praising Sheriff Brown for the great job he’s doing and that both of them had worked for the D. C. Police Dept. I wonder if this is why D. C. has such a violent crime record.

  • Finally, South Carolina rejects racist flag

        “It is a new day in South Carolina, a day we can all be proud of.”
        With that, Republican Governor Nikki Haley congratulated the South Carolina legislature for its overwhelming votes to take down the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds. Hours later last Thursday, she signed the bill. The flag came down the next day.

  • What can you do about that?

        Last week, our second full week in our new office on 233 Depot Street, I was thinking of some of the advantages of our move. One is that I’m within walking distance of Fisher’s. I discovered that I can call in an order for a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit and it’s ready by the time I walk there. The other advantage is that I no longer drive down Washington Street to get to the office.
