    Grasping at straws

    In the 1960’s television series “Bewitched,” a character named Mrs. Kravitz constantly spied on her neighbors, obsessing over their behavior and certain that something was amiss. Problem is, she never was able to convince her husband that there was anything newsworthy going on, and in fact her husband generally dismissed her as being nuts.

    Gun solution that respects 2nd amendment

    President Obama recently stated that, in the face of increasing gun violence, the road to stricter gun control laws should obsess us. Many people, along with the NRA, believe that our second amendment right to bear arms is important and should be protected, with the problem being that too many mentally ill people continue to have access to guns. I agree that the second amendment grants us an important right, and I have a suggestion that addresses both viewpoints.

    Pipeline problems

    I saw the Williams pipeline’s cheery ad in Sunday’s The News-Enterprise. Maybe instead of the ad copy there should be the caption “Head for the Hills.” 

    That was the message on shirts worn by some of the pipeline’s protesters recently, a play on words from a Williams pipeline information sheet: “Actions to take in the event of a leak.” 

    The material continues:

    Paying it forward

    I am writing concerning a letter that came to the editor last month about sharing kindness with strangers. Pay it forward, if you will. She received a card at a drive-thru window along with a free meal in memory of Kelli Shaw. She spoke of how it opened her eyes to sharing with others and the importance of God, family and friends.

    Supporting Boutwell

    Several people have complained about Ike Boutwell choosing not to show “Lee Daniel’s The Butler” due to Jane “Hanoi” Fonda being cast and I agree with him just on that point alone, but there’s more.

    What I find disturbing is that people would be so accepting of a traitor.

    Every baby deserves a chance

    September is National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, a campaign sponsored by the National Healthy Start Association. During this month, people are encouraged to become more aware and educated about how they can help ensure babies reach their first birthday.

  • Theater owner’s decision a hot topic

    I salute Mr. Ike Boutwell on his stand not to show a movie that has the traitor Jane Fonda as a cast member. Her actions during the Vietnam War aided and abetted the enemy while we had our armed forces fighting in theater. There is no doubt in my mind that her actions of encouraging the North Vietnamese army led to direct casualties of U.S. armed forces.
