Unhealthy pastime trimmed down to holidays - Justin Boron

“Some people have a foolish way of not minding, or pretending not to mind, what they eat. For my part, I mind my belly very studiously, and very carefully; for I look upon it, that he who does not mind his belly, will hardly mind anything else.” – Samuel Johnson

On technology and shopping malls - Michael Davis

Letters to the Editor

Murtha's comments just short of treason

Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., is totally off base in his demands to pull out of Iraq immediately. This is just short of treason in my book. He has given a tremendous boost to the enemy, who must now believe Americans cannot stomach war for any cause. For those who think out losses have been horrific, consider that America lost more than 50,000 men in a six-month time frame during World War I. Every life is precious, but our losses have been miniscule by comparison to other wars.

A redneck listens to a little classical music - Bob Paslay
