SpeakOut 10/20

Monday, October 20, 2003

Call 471-6636

Our enemies are among us. Those who cheat and steal; those who treat their fellow man with disdain and hatefulness; those who spread lies and untruths; those who put down our President because he is not of their party. We can fix this. Start with yourself and work outward.

Woe to those who make unjust laws, who those who issue oppressive decrees to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of the people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches?

In the Oct. 15 paper, the part about Hunter Moore's new song, about pulling his own weight and some worked hard or not at all, that sure is right about Sikeston.

There is a store in Sikeston where I buy all my groceries. But for several months, I had to go out of town to buy meat because theirs was so terrible. I don't know what happened, but I'd like to commend the manager. It looks great and is pleasing to look at and I'm buying my meat here in town again.

This is in response to the person who called SpeakOut demonstrating a limited past of business and intelligence when they complained about their boss. Try to limit the number of piercings one could have on their face and yet work for him or her. Let me explain to that person that if I went into that store and was waited on by a person with multiple earrings, maybe even two (certainly more than two in an ear), any eye piercing, nose piercing, lip piercing or tongue piercing, that would be the only time I would walk into that store. Yes, dear. It does have an effect. I am one of the store's customers.
