I hope and pray you have time to research this question and put the answer in your paper. I wanted to know if a woman got pregnant with twins, is it possible for there to be two different fathers? I know this was documented about 30 years ago in a magazine.

There wasn't a whole lot of information available on this subject, but here's what we came up with: Source: www.ananova.com, January 13, 2003. A Croatian woman who slept with two men at the same time has given birth to twins with two different fathers. The 23-year-old student, who has been named only as M B, gave birth to non-identical twins in Zagreb seven months ago. However, she has revealed that DNA testing has shown the children have different fathers. She told daily Jutarnji List, "I was shocked at getting pregnant and even more surprised when doctors told me that my two sons had different fathers." Doctors have said twins being born to different fathers is extremely rare.

Yes, there was 63 million votes cast on America Idol. More than any American president ever. But in what American election was everyone allowed to vote as many times as they wanted? Come on Mr. Seacrest, America "ain't" that stupid.

I am happy to provide a solution to our current immigrant problem. Why not round up and imprison all of the crooked Republicans and hire the illegal immigrants to guard them? I'm sure there will be a serious guard shortage, so perhaps we could open up the borders for a while until we have enough. Some will not agree with this, but maybe a few will be scared straight. Just thinking, A disgusted Missouri voter.

The next time you need an ambulance to take you to the hospital because you are in labor, why not wait until your husband (ha) comes home from work (ha) in your car that has gas (ha) and insurance (ha). After all, you had nine months to plan on getting to the hospital to have this baby. I am sure this is not your first time.

I would like to thank the Semo Drug Task Force for the bust they made in Morehouse a couple of weeks ago. We the good people of Morehouse were glad to see it. It has been needed for several years now. I have to wonder why it took so long?

To the lady that called in about the rolling stops. Honey, if you haven't lived in Southeast Missouri long, that's called a St. Louis stop. Deal with it. The other thing is, the person who called in about the speeding on North Ingram, I live there. If you don't want people to know who you are, don't write "slow" on the asphalt in front of your house. Goodbye.
