Pope Benedict recently called huge government deficits a moral problem, describing them as “living at the expense of future generations.” Our big-spending politicians should listen intently to his wise words.
It makes me sad that people live their lives based on a book that was written several thousand years ago with talking snakes, rivers of blood and seven-headed dragons, and that they need unconditional love from a mythological being to feel good about themselves and do the right thing.
The city leaders should be focusing on enlarging and making improvements to the satellite libraries rather than building a $30 million library in the downtown area. Surely the usage of the satellites combined is far more than of the downtown facility.
A new library? So we’re going to print a chunk of the Internet and put it on shelves in a new building so homeless people will have a place to nap during the day?
Keeping the city buses running was absolutely the right thing to do. How ignorant to suggest that only ex-cons and people who’ve made poor decisions need buses. Those able to work are expected to have jobs to support themselves. But without a bus system in place, many would be unable to do so.
In recognition of our legislators, it’s time to retire the state song, “Home on the Range,” and replace it with “Send in the Clowns.”
So Missouri legislators have dedicated a bust of Rush Limbaugh at the Capitol. Somehow the Kansas Legislature doesn’t seem quite as loony now.
No one is more unreachable than someone with a cellphone.
If people spent as much time and effort on their children as their pets, our prisons would be empty and our world’s problems would be few. People are the problem and, therefore, also the answer.
This old, bald white guy says it’s really too bad “American Idol” is such a popularity contest. Joshua Ledet should have won it all.
Donna Summer: We loved to love you, baby. Rest in peace.
I understand the need for variety regarding TV sports. But skateboarding and snowboarding seem less like sports and more like people trying not to fall down. And people playing poker? Boring. Give me a lot more horse racing. It’s underrated, interesting and, as they say, “the sport of kings.”
