Not unpatriotic to disagree with leaders

In response to Dave Gibson's letter; I am not sure I agree with Rep. John Murtha, but perhaps the reason he "hates" Bush is the love of his country.

I am growing tired of the rhetoric of being unpatriotic just because someone disagrees with Bush and holds a different opinion.

It is for the love of this country and the love of democracy that people voice their opinions and debate the issues of what they think is best for this country. Yourself and Rep. Murtha included. What is lacking is the spouting of rhetoric and not arguing the actual issues out of love for our country.

'Photograph' may be a sappy classic - Johnny Jackson

Apart from their usual brunt tenor, the rock band Nickelback finally created some semblance of classic music in their latest album single simply named ‘Photograph'. That is to say that the band, even with the same resonance of past albums and singles, has formulated a tasteful mix of song and music that would otherwise sound trite and frankly annoying.
