I am for Hillary Clinton for vice president or president. Whoever said Clinton ran around and gave away everything and moved jobs out? What do you think Bush and Laura are doing? Giving away thousands of dollars overseas for uniforms for school kids. We could use this money in the United States. I have lost my job to Mexico. Now I have no money, no insurance and no job and there don't seem to be any jobs available. I have a lot of medical bills. Who's going to pay these? Also, if old big-mouth Bush has his way, we won't have Social Security for the elderly. It doesn't take much brains to figure out the Republicans think only for the rich and not for the poor and elderly. Look how many jobs are being lost and look how many are being downsized. I sure hope you know what you're talking about. I'm for Hillary any day.

If anyone needs canning jars, you can find plenty of them at 615 S. New Madrid St. All you have to do is come by.

I would like to make a comment about the little Wickliffe boy that was killed at his grandmother's house by the neighbor's dog. If the dog was chained up, the boy had no business going into the neighbor's yard. The grandmother should be responsible for not watching the boy. It should not be the neighbor's fault, especially if the dog was chained up.

It's remorseful when a child or anybody dies because of an animal. However, it's more tragic that the animal's owner, if the animal was properly chained, the animal hadn't broken the chain and a neighbor's child was allowed to wander out of his yard and into the owner's yard. It's more negligence on the child's grandparents for not keeping a closer eye on the 5-year-old child.

This is to the person who said the attorney general could have stopped the attack on 9-11 by signing a thing with the FBI on Sept. 10, like the next day it would have stopped the Sept. 11 bombing, just by him signing that thing one day previously. I think that's pretty ignorant.

If you have lost a tan and white cat with no tail, it's been at the emergency room parking lot for a week.
