    Looking at pro-life record

    With no desire for disrespect toward a wife defending her husband (Letters, April 13), I’d like to respond concerning Jimmie Lee’s voting record as well as the state of pro-life legislation in the Kentucky House.

    Prompted by bumper sticker

    The other day my husband went to the post office. After he pulled into a parking space, a young lady in her early 20s pulled into the spot next to him. As my husband was rounding the back of his truck, he noticed the young lady had a bumper sticker that said, “Obama and Biden Forever.” Intrigued, he asked, “So, how is that working for you?”
