In your campaign, you emphasized the need for change, and I want to respectfully challenge you to reconsider your position on the abortion issue, and by so doing guaranteeing freedom and liberty for “the least of these,” i.e., countless lives waiting to be born.
My disapproval notwithstanding, if the Legislature authorizes The W to sell the Carrier Lodge property, it is imperative that the school receives the maximum amount available from ANY willing buyer. This means no private, non-competitive purchase.
I was most pleased to see that Travis Childers and Bennie Thomson voted “YES” on the economic stimulus bill. I, on the other hand, think it most shameful that the rest of the Congressmen from the poorest state in the country voted a big “NO.” What do Senators Wicker and Cochran and Representatives Taylor and Harper think will alleviate the economic crisis in Mississippi? More tax relief to zombie companies, many of whom are insolvent and pay no taxes anyway?
That was a great column on Sunday about Catfish Alley ... and I loved the title!
The Catfish Alley article was interesting. Those tapes should have a lot of history about Columbus during the last century.
I have enjoyed the write-ups on Catfish Alley. I remember the very first Bob's was in Catfish Alley.
In Mr. Bill Parker’s letter, The teaching of science, Feb. 3, he blames “anti-science” movements for crippling teacher’s effort to teach science, especially evolution. I have great respect and admiration for instruments of education like Mr. Parker, who are concerned about the welfare of our children.
I was disturbed to see a full-page ad in Sunday’s Dispatch with the headline “The Obama Abortion Agenda.” The ad blamed the Democratic leadership for targeting “unborn children and their mothers” and made several generalized statements as to what would happen if the “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) were passed by Congress. It referred readers to a Web site to “learn more.” Much in this ad is misleading, half-truth or patently false.
I watched the documentary on Ted Haggard last night on HBO. 45 minutes of me crying over this man who was caught having a homosexual relationship and who used drugs. He is a man who made a whole lot of money, who did admit to the men he was accountable to his “sin.” He was ousted from leadership, and with that I have no problem. The kicker for me was he was removed from his home, his, not one the church owned, and ran out of Colorado altogether.
Re: your recent headline “Child porn cases not taken lightly.” Really! What about cases of actual sexual abuse on a child? Last year Gill Dishongh, a ‘prominent’ white businessman and churchgoer of the community received two years for the despicable crime. Admittedly guilty.
We write to you today as concerned citizens and as followers of Jesus Christ.
