Speakout 5/10

Thursday, May 10, 2007

Call 471-6636

This is in comment to the SpeakOut, Jabbing Jensen. To the person who said Mike Jensen was a racist and that he has kept this town divided because of the paper. I've never seen where it was written anywhere that you had to live a certain place because of color. So the racist stuff is just in your mind. And for this Virginia Tech stuff, he was just printing the news. Did you not see that on TV? I guess that must have just been only in the Sikeston Standard-Democrat. Quit whining and get you a hobby. You have too much time on your hands to complain. If there is a racist, you need to look in your closet. As far as the immigration and boycott. We have plenty of them here at the restaurants in Sikeston that are not legal. So is that racist or what? You tell me. So Mike, just keep on printing. These bigots who can't stand the truth or reality are always going to be there with a teardrop on their face.

Following the death of Josh Hancock, I have a suggestion for Busch Stadium. I think they ought to erect signs as you leave the stadium that say, "Don't drink and drive because the life you save may be your own." I think that would be very, very fitting especially during this time. I think that would be a good reminder that drinking cannot only kill you, it can kill someone you love.

This is regarding the person who was wanting the 45 rpm records. I have some available. They can reach me at 471-4323.

I just read today's paper on the front page where it said this gentleman just got up and started stabbing him, about the teenage stabbing on the school bus. How in the world can anyone call somebody that gets up and tries to kill someone a gentleman? I wonder if rapist and child abusers will now start to be called gentlemen? Answer that in SpeakOut.
