SpeakOut 1/17

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Call 471-6636

After reading Your View on Jan. 7, Priorities wrong by Mr. Edmondson in Ballwin, Mo., thank you sir. You have it all nailed down the way it is. I just realized that the reason they don't raise pigs around southeast Missouri is there is too much "pork" here now.

I'd like to speak out about the Sikeston-Charleston game robbery. The guy who broadcasts on the Sikeston Channel 12, he's the most biased announcer I ever heard. It's obviously biased. If we talk about a rivalry between Sikeston and Charleston in basketball, it's not even close. We're talking about a program that's trying to get going. Sikeston has had three Final Four appearances in their history, Charleston has had five state Final Four appearances in the last five years. It's not even close. We have 10 state titles. We've had probably six All-American nominees in a small town like Charleston. You've beaten Charleston two times in the last two years. But you can beat them for the next 10 years and you're not even going to come close. Congratulations to you Bulldogs for winning two games in a row. That's about all I have to say. Charleston is the best and always will be. Big time program with a big time schedule. Get that straight.

I'm looking for some Nancy Drew games. The games I'm looking for are number two, seven, nine, 10 and 11. If anybody would be interesting in selling them, call 573- 703-3255.

Wake up folks. You want Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to join Obama in the White House? Vote for Hillary. Women don't want war. She won't be like that crazy Texan that's quick with the guns and wants to rule the world. She'll take care of America and its needs. We'll come first. Go Hillary!

I address this to the SpeakOut caller who spouted lies about Barack Obama and then claimed he found them listed as "facts" on a website called snopes.com. That website exposes urban legends, you know, rumors and lies that have been passed around so much that they are commonly believed to be true. They are telling you that these stories about him being a radical Muslim, that he refuses to say the Pledge and that he was sworn in with the Koran are false. Remember your Commandments: "Thou shalt not bear false witness." He's not my candidate, but I won't stand by while you spread such ignorance. I hope you're not from Sikeston. I'd hate to think I live in the same town as you do.

I would just like to know what is happened to Mary Ann Maloney. We just see flashes of her once in awhile. But she's never on the news like she used to be. We would like to know what has happened to her.

According to KFVS-12, Mary Ann Maloney was on vacation during the holidays, but is now back on the air.
