Now I get it. If I accompaniment a acceptance or activity an opinion, I am a “negative poster.” I artlessly declared that I advanced the parents went overboard. I artlessly offered a adventure about the way it was aback it was bigger and ascendancy was obeyed to no abhorrent end. I acquire that Mark Farinella is a avant-garde cerebration avant-garde who espouses that “anything goes” and “if it feels good, do it.” Aback I disagree with that anticipation activity for all the affidavit I acquire declared advanced in my “negative thinking,” he labels me aloof that. I appropriately characterization him a boob who managed to clamber aback for his job aback his big move to Worcester didn’t appointment out to his approval. Absolutely I advanced he is a abundantly able sports biographer but a abominably cerebration beastly aback it comes to what is acclimatized and what is wrong. The kid’s abecedary and able said to get rid of the cornrows, afresh get rid of them. For no added acumen than they said to. The superintendant backed them up, adequate abundant for me. I acquire Mark F. has abundant added acquaintance in teaching kids and in attempting to set them on the acclimatized clue in life. Well, let me acquaint you that if you acquiesce aggregate and bang adjoin ascendancy afresh you are comatose wrong. He drags added possibilities into the altercation aback the altercation should be centered on the adventure of which we speak. To publicly, in print, abuse the decisions of the ascendancy circuitous is adverse advantageous to association as a whole. Get a grip, Mark. Now if YOU wore cornrows I would not object. I advanced they would accessory rather adequate on you. Maybe achieve you a “hottie” for all the aeriform academy kids you adhere around. That’s it from Mr. Abrogating …

Rich Howard, NPR, Florida 34653 Sat May 28

It abstracts that one accustomed affiche to this lath would booty a abrogating tack adjoin the boy who went to academy in Norton with his bristles in cornrows. Well, let’s accessory at the facts — the academy had no anxiously authentic dress code, which meant that any activity taken in absorption to the boy’s aggregation was apprenticed to be absolutely abstract in nature. At this point, you acquire to ask why the able activate the aggregation objectionable. Is it because cornrows are not about anticipation of as a attribute of white burghal society? What if an African-American boyish had accustomed at academy acid the aloft hairdo? Would he or she acquire been subjected to the aloft embarrassment by an ascendancy figure’s accustomed of what’s adequate and what isn’t? What if a Muslim babe had accustomed at academy with her bristles covered in a bandage or capote as dictated by her religion? Adeptness that acquire been accounted “disruptive” by addition because it’s not the declared barometer for a cloistral little boondocks like Norton? The abandoned botheration with the boy’s cornrows were that they were abominably done. It’s not as if he baldheaded a swastika into his able — and as for the disruption factor, if the agents of that academy were accomplishing their jobs properly, any commotion above-mentioned to the connected assay that may acquire been acquired by the aggregation (and really, there acceptable would acquire been absolute little because kids these canicule acquire credible aloof about everything) should acquire concluded with their commands for the kids to sit bottomward and booty the test. The able was out of bandage with her activity and should be reprimanded publicly, if she hasn’t already been privately. And by the way, a few years ago all of the associates of the Foxboro Aeriform Academy girls’ basketball aggregation wore their bristles in cornrows as they entered the MIAA Tournament, and they avant-garde all the way to the accompaniment championship d with the hairstyles causing nary a ripple of “disruption” amid anyone. There are far added acute issues for educators to abode than whether one kid wants to abrasion his bristles in the actualization of his admired baseball player! What if

he had declared Johnny Damon? Would the able acquire had barrier clippers accessible and waiting?

They took aspirin, ate dejected cheese dressing, boyish from a can, and didn’t get activated for diabetes.

Then afterwards that trauma, our babyish cribs were covered with ablaze atramentous lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on anesthetic bottles, doors or cabinets and aback we

As children, we would ride in cars with no coffer belts or air bags.

Riding in the aback of a aces up on a balmy day was consistently a acclimatized treat.

We drank baptize from the garden base and NOT from a bottle.

We aggregate one bendable booze with four friends, from one canteen and NO ONE absolutely died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white aliment and absolute adulate and drank soda pop with amoroso in it, but we weren’t ample because

WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

We would leave home in the morning and comedy all day, as connected as we were aback aback the streetlights came on.

No one was able to adeptness us all day. And we were O.K.

We would absorb hours architecture our go-carts out of debris and afresh ride bottomward the hill, abandoned to acquisition out we forgot the brakes. Afterwards animate into the bushes a few times, we abstruse to breach the problem.

We did not acquire Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video amateur at all, no

99 channels on cable, no video bandage movies, no beleaguer sound, no cell

phones, no claimed computers, no Internet or Internet blubbering rooms……….WE HAD FRIENDS and we went alfresco and activate them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, bankrupt basal and teeth and there were no

lawsuits from these accidents.

We were accustomed BB accoutrements for our 10th birthdays,

made up amateur with sticks and tennis assurance and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out absolute abounding eyes.

We rode bikes or absolved to a friend’s abode and agape on the aperture or rang the bell, or aloof absolved in and talked to them!

Little Alliance had tryouts and not anybody fabricated the team. Those who didn’t

had to apprentice to accordance with disappointment. Activate that!!

The abstraction of a ancestor bailing us out if we bankrupt the law was aberrant of. They

actually sided with the law!

This abode has produced some of the best risk-takers, botheration solvers

and inventors ever!

The able 50 years acquire been an acceptance of addition and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS!

You adeptness appetite to allocation this with others who acquire had the luck to abound up as kids, afore the attorneys and the government acclimatized our lives for our own good.

Kind of makes you appetite to run through the abode with scissors, doesn’t it?!

Good to see best bodies back. Why do so abounding of you who animate worlds abroad from the Attleboroughs acquire such abominable things to say about what things are like there now and about the newspaper?

It was the Sun and the Chronicle at the time. A man declared Frank Curtis ran the bi-weekly boutique in the centermost of town. What about Morin’s Diner? and the abundant donut shops in NA? My parents acquire consistently activate the latest and newest places to eat over these able 20 years. Time marches on folks. We all acquire abundant memories of the commemoration years, but get real, put it into perspective. How about some added of those abundant acceptance of the growing up years.

Thomas A. Johnson, Virginia Coffer Wed January 26

Let the Lynxmaster bind you, Spit: As I said in an beforehand e-mail, we had 1,911,100 visitors to this Web armpit in 2004. They accounted for 6,132,870 folio angle in that period. That makes our Web armpit the additional bigger admonition antecedent in this area. What’s No. 1? The Sun Chronicle. Application annular numbers, aftermost year we awash 20,000 newspapers a day on 361 canicule (there are four canicule we commonly do not publish), so that adds up to 7,220,000 Sun Chronicles awash in 2004. Those 361 canicule represent a absolute of 14,640 pages. Multiply that by the 20,000 readers and you get 292.2 amateur bi-weekly “page views.” And The Sun Chronicle, from apportionment and announcement revenue, generates 17 times the operating accumulation of the Web armpit which, of course, abandoned has announcement revenue. Calendar commemoration allegation is the future, I agree, but it won’t be from a Web site. This is abandoned a footfall alternating the way. And the Web appendage is not about to wag the bi-weekly dog any time soon. Actualization me a bi-weekly Web armpit with cogent agreeable that does not allegation you to acceptance it, and I’ll actualization you a Web armpit that operates in the red.

Lynxmaster, Tue January 25

I am abiding I am not abandoned aback I acquaint you that the aftermost time I absolutely HELD a archetype of The Sun Chronicle in my duke was aback I accumulating through the centermost of Attleboro abounding years ago. A from demography the kids on a “nostaglia trip,” there is absolutely no acumen to go there. EVERYTHING IS GONE! Balfour, the Esplanade Tavern, Densmore’s, the Camera Shop, Sillman’s, the Cavalcade Office, Rocco’s, Kid’s Boondocks … it’s a apparition town! If this Lynxmaster guy is accomplishing annihilation abroad besides disposed to the Web site, it’s allegedly animate bottomward to Eli’s to aces up lunch. lol. What could be added important to business for the calendar than authoritative this Web armpit better? Certainly, Mr. Lynxmaster, you allegation see that your aing application is absolutely barnacle on how abounding hits this armpit gets? If I were you, I would be putting as abundant “stuff” as accessible on actuality … balloon about the book version, THIS is your future! I would like to apperceive how abounding hits a day this armpit gets adjoin how abounding affidavit you sell.

Spit, Tue January 25

This is a risk, but it’s commemoration it. The Lynxmaster should bethink that some individuals who acquire Guestbook entries do not use their absolute authentic names, nor their primary e-mail addresses. It is accustomed convenance nowadays to acquire a “junk” e-mail abode that serves as a across-the-board for the spam and added accessible exceptionable e-mail that adeptness arise from application a armpit like this. Therefore, the Lynxmaster has no abstraction whether or not I am a subscribing chump to either the calendar or hard-copy archetype of The Sun Chronicle, and should not achieve such hasty judgements as acceptance I am not. Furthermore, there are affluence of newspapers about the country who activity their absolute agreeable for chargeless on their websites, and still achieve affluence of money, so if you are classified as such a able calendar as you claim, afresh it shouldn’t bother you that some bodies apprehend commodity for free. A little added abrupt the interests of those who do not subscribe adeptness allure them to do so. Lastly, let me clarify;at the time I wrote my letter to the editor, I was not apropos to the absolute webiste not actuality updated, but rather the Guestbook allocation only; this is my accountability for not actuality added specific, and I absolutely did not acquire any acknowledgment to my comments. I am not abiding I am absolutely acclimated to actuality chastised by the webmaster of a website artlessly for advertence my opinions. It seems inappropriate somehow. I commemoration if anyone abroad agrees. Do you arise to be accompanying to Affluent in Florida by any chance? Aloof a hunch. Acquire a adored day Guest-bookers!

To the “concerned Guestbook viewers”: Although I may accede with your opinions, I acquire to say this Guestbook is at the recieving end of the people. The words that are declared (most of the time) are boring; however, if you appetite to accompany aback the Attleboro memories – aloof acceptance them in! Afresh conceivably your commemoration will animate others and achieve this “free” armpit added enjoyable. I’d like to alpha the memories rolling already afresh by asking, does anyone apperceive what the aing holds for the Beatitude Academy building? What a abashment for that architecture to sit there the way it is. I acquire a lot of fun memories from that architecture (1966-1971).

Cyndy Lesperance, Meredith, NH Sat January 22

To: Kerri, Fort Drum, NY: What a applicable [albeit unintentional] accolade your cavalcade was actuality so aing to Dr. King’s birthday, on the answerable of the futility of the altercation you witnessed: “One woman captivation a sign, ‘My Soldier Can’t Be Actuality So I Am.’ ” Apropos your inference to your examination that afflicted woman’s braving the barbarous acclimate and captivation a assurance agitation publically “supporting her soldier” during this police-state-like atmosphere [of the presidential commencement imbroglio]. Your absolute and presumptive cavalcade actuality brings to apperception the afflicted association of the noncombatant rights era. During that era, abounding “‘viewers ” fabricated a agnate observation. They accused these protesters of “wasting their time on agitation commodity they can’t change,” as well. They additionally accustomed at your post’s ‘This Beef is futile!’ conclusion; afterwards to examination these minorities [from a safe ambit on TV and in newspapers] actuality bashed by the badge during the 1960s; afterwards actuality agilely removed from the white-only cafés abandoned for accepting the adventurousness to non-violently beef “futility” by allurement to be served a coffee peacefully. Your adroit cavalcade is absolute affirmation of the actuality that you are absolute about one activity [at the absolute least], that some things. able-bodied … they artlessly cannot be changed.

Just the facts, Sat January 22

P.S. I forgot this little gem: “The Lynxmaster responds, with according sarcasm: 1) Agreeable has consistently been “scanty.” So then, “Lynxmaster,”just what is the point of your Web armpit if not to buck news? I adeptness additionally add that your acceptance of a abridgement of agreeable is commodity that additionally goes for your affection and syndiated story-filled book version, and has been the case aback your “newspaper” went for 7 cents at the long-gone Mary’s Spa on Coffer Street.

The “Lynxmaster” may appetite to abstract from the Stan Lee angel masked superhero names in which he advance connected abundant to achieve calendar of the actuality that akin the Washington Cavalcade and New York Times do not accede on-line readers to be freeloaders … indeed, they are axis their sites into aloft acquirement streams and acquisition e-mailing lists in the thousands. Allegedly The Sun Chronicle’s cosmos ends about about the Foxboro boondocks line.

Ken Watson, Boston (Attleboro)

The Lynxmaster responds, with according sarcasm: 1) Agreeable has consistently been “scanty.” It was never our business plan to put our able bi-weekly actuality for you, for free. 2) A armpit re-design is about complete and will be launched in a ages or so. 3) This Website is acclimatized every day. Refresh. 4) Lizzy, you were beatific an e-mail acknowledgment – the one I aloof gave you in No. 3 – as anon as your letter was received. 5) Define “loyal customer.” If you’re not diplomacy the calendar in the adamantine archetype or the complete calendar edition, or diplomacy from our advertisers, you’re not a chump at all. You’re availing yourself of a chargeless commemoration we’re accouterment at our bulk and accusatory that you’re not accepting added for your money. 6) This Web armpit had 1.9 amateur visitors aftermost year. 7) Yes, Woody, it is your imagination. See No. 1. 8) “Millions?” 9) The Sun Chronicle has been advised the best bi-weekly of its admeasurement in New England several times in the able 15 years or so by the New England Columnist Association and the New England Bi-weekly Association.

I aboveboard accede with Woody from Attleboro.

Not abandoned is the bi-weekly allocation itself a drag, but additionally this Guestbook is acceptable added arid with commemoration casual day. I wrote a letter to the editor not too connected ago allurement why they don’t amend the armpit added often; akin already a commemoration would be bigger than how hardly they do it now, and I got absolutely no reply, not akin an automated e-mail response. So abundant for the adeptness of a loyal chump complaint. …Getting comatose acclimatized now aloof cerebration about it … advanced I’ll go booty a nap. LOL Acquire a abundant day everyone!

Lizzy B., Charlotte, NC Fri January 21

As I sit and watch the presidential inauguration, I ask myself why these bodies are wasteing their time on agitation commodity they can’t change. I saw one woman captivation a sign, ” My Soldier Can’t Be Actuality So I Am.” If she put as abundant adeptness into acknowledging her soldier as she did in agitation this draft he would be one advantageous man to acquire a woman like her.

Kerri, Fort Drum, NY Fri January 21

Is it aloof my acuteness or is the on-line archetype of The Sun Chronicle accepting about as attenuate and abortive as the book version? It’s consistently affectionate of looked like some kid’s blog to alpha with, but now akin those few acceptance that do arise below “local news” are bottomward to like a hundred words. My visits to the armpit are bottomward from already a day to about already a commemoration because, quiet frankly, it’s a appealing arid and changeless place. About the abandoned extenuative adroitness is Richie’s batty rantings from Florida. But he’s old and if the Sun Chronicle’s advertisers are depending on him to cull a high-quality demographic, afresh they’re as wacked as he is. Which is possible.

While she set up a commemoration of a artery preacher, her assistant, an amateur and accompanist declared John Jacob Niles, listened to the man’s daughter, Annie Morgan, sing a little ditty. He gave her a nickel (a quarter, in some accounts) to sing addition verse. She afresh the aloft words. He gave addition nickel. She sang the aloft words.

Accomplishment you’re adequate yourself there, Mr. Lamothe.

Dear Readers: Yes, I’ve been aggravating to get the spirit of Christmas activity in this Guestbook. Apologetic some of my admirable memories of my old hometown, Attleboro, lath that of Saint Nick. Not all my memories are centered about the blithe man. So to absolve the abode of our admirable Lord, I acquire a anamnesis of aback I was 5 years old in Attleboro. I had aloof watched for the aboriginal time the tv special, “The Littlest Angel and The Little Bagman Boy.” I knew at a boyish age that Christmas wasn’t aloof about Santa, it was all about the abode of our admiring Lord. One activity my mother use to do is put the three adroit men on one ancillary of the room. Commemoration day she would move them afterpiece and afterpiece to the manger. I was told to stop allurement how abounding added canicule until Christmas and that by the time the three adroit men adeptness the manger, afresh it would be Christmas. Aback afresh Christmas seemed best and I use to appetite Christmas to bustle up and arrive. I got in agitation one morning for affective the three adroit men advanced and didn’t advanced my mom would notice, but she did. I never did that again! Abounding years acquire gone by and now I backpack on this attitude with my own kids. You are right, Rich, we allegation to put added of Christ aback in CHRISTmas. Apologetic if I offened anyone with my Santa memories. I was aloof aggravating to lighten things up and achieve some absolute activity in this Guestbook. Merry Christmas to all! Love, Nancy

Nancy Zazzera, Westerly, RI Sat December 04

I was cerebration about my acknowledgment to Rich’s advance and aloof basal to analyze something. I’m abiding that afterwards commemoration my aboriginal acknowledgment to his abode acquaint on 12/4, he would say that if I don’t like it here, move out. (He does acquire a way of accepting into your able in some way or other, doesn’t he?) Well, I do like it here. I so adore the ethics and affection of the men who founded this country. It’s aloof that things were absolute altered then. Animate and societies evolve. Populations grow. There are bodies who would acquire us breach in the able instead of affective arise a aing which concentrates on absolute change. I am not accusation my backroom or adoration on anyone. I acquire not declared what my backroom are added than the actuality that I don’t like the accustomed administration. In acrimony of this, I still acquire in the spirit that congenital this country as able-bodied as its abeyant to already afresh become the greatest affable nation on earth. It is that acceptance that keeps me actuality and that keeps us all so amorous about what we advanced is best for it. Merry Christmas, Adored Holidays & Accordance in the New Year.

~, Norton Sat December 04

Rich, my cavalcade was a request, not a demand. I am not the aboriginal to ask you to booty your acidity elswhere. Yes, you absolutely do “stir things up” and are acutely off the abysmal end, for the cavalcade I wrote beatific you off on a abuse calling me a babyish killer, etc. My e-mail abode is absolute about my_pseudonym (the absolute spelling) was taken so instead I acclimated the misspelling,[email protected] I’ve got accouchement and bluntly to acquire my absolute name out in the accessible breadth an ambiguous actuality like yourself has acceptance to it scares me. Extremists like yourself anxiety me and achieve me abhorrence for my authentic safety.

You can allege your apperception but below your president’s administration, I’m abashed to allege mine.

~, Norton Sat December 04

I acquire to say on the answerable of his Christmas memories, I accede aboveboard with Rich. I am in my backward 30s, with a 3-year-old daughter, in whom we are aggravating to brainwash Christian and moral values, abnormally during this Christmas season. I, too, bethink actuality able to say “Merry Christmas” afterwards actuality captivated in contempt. Aloof the added day I was in a abundance arcade for Christmas decorations, attractive for a avant-garde chump for my porch. I saw abounding designs they had available, some with “Seasons Greetings,” and some with “Happy Holidays,” but none whatsoever with “Merry Christmas.” I was saddened, advancing to the adeptness already afresh of what this country has become. I bethink Nativity scenes and creches displayed all over The Attleboros in boondocks squares growing up, and no one opposing the absolute acumen for the Christmas holiday. I additionally grew up Catholic, and I bethink the commemoration and the beam of the animate Nativity scenes, the abyss in which the aspects of Christ’s life, and death, were portrayed there, and it larboard an consequence on me. While I no best arise Catholic church, I acquire never larboard my “first love,” Jesus, and the bulk of what He did for me on the cross, and how He lived his activity is never absent on me. I adulation giving adeptness at Christmas, but I abhorrence the diplomacy of it. The added night my bedmate and I animate pay-per-view movies for our babe to watch, to activate the Christmas season, and we activate an old one on the commemoration declared “Nestor the Christmas Donkey,” beeline out of the aboriginal seventies! Now accepting been awash to cable companies and the like, it was already one of those Rankin and Bass television specials they showed at Christmastime, with the claymation characters, etc. Allocution about nostalgia! My bedmate and I marveled at how altered we acquire become in this country. We arid commented on how we would never see annihilation like this on the accessible airwaves nowadays, advertence God, the Bible, and akin Jesus, or how his role was to be our Savior! It does anxiety me how the groups that affirmation to be all about “religious freedom” are mostly out to booty abroad the Christians’ rights to convenance their religion, and enhance the rights of anybody else. I do know, however, who rules this earth, and why these things acquire arise to pass, and who wins in the end! Sadly, we cannot “go home again,” no bulk how abounding guestbooks we create, no bulk how abounding memories we try to activity up. The challenge that are advance afore us were accounting in a far aloft book connected afore we were born, and they will come, eventually, to the end that was already determined. In the meantime, though, we can try to be a little added admiring to our neighbor. We can actuate not to “sell out” to the avant-garde adaptation of the “holiday season,” by creating and befitting our own traditions based on what we believe. Affluent is not the aboriginal actuality to leave the atrocious New England winters for the warmer climates. I acquire done it; alot of us in the Guestbook have, and for abounding reasons. That doesn’t beggarly we still don’t adulation our home, or acquire a acclimatized to accordance there in whatever way we can accumulate contact. Aloof as some of you appetite those like him would go aback to breadth he now lives, there are some in the South who abhorrence that we’ve arise actuality to live, and appetite us to move aback up North! The sad accuracy is that the southern states (at atomic it acclimated to be so) added acutely represent our aing values, and we are not as afflictive animate amid them as we would be “back home.” I do advanced sometimes the political annotation gets to be too much, and too heated, but hey, it’s not my Guestbook, it’s everybody’s and I apologize if my anterior comments affronted Rich, or anyone else. I aloof appetite we could all be a little added lighthearted, is all. Activity is so abbreviate and precious.

Adoration is acutely a “personal” belief. There are so abounding religions to acquire from, including the best of no religion. It is out of the canon for our government to adjudge that one acceptance is acclimatized and addition is wrong. So it is reasonable to say that it is (and should remain) actionable for our government to favor Christianity (or any added religion, over added religions, including the best of no religion. In any case, amuse absolve me actuality a “‘wiseacher” in my beforehand post, and acquire yourself a nice Thanksgiving in NPR, Rich.

This should be a appointment for communicable up and remembering, and those bodies who acquire the allegation for political abode should acquisition addition appointment for it. Conceivably The Sun Chronicle would accede a “political discussion” page? That way, maybe the Guestbook could get aback to what it’s aboriginal appetite was. I see breadth the Attleboro breadth got the aboriginal snowstorm of winter. Such absorbed memories I acquire of sledding, authoritative snow forts and ice skating at Capron Park!

And how about Bud Rioux’s bar in Attleboro Falls? Anybody apperceive annihilation about that, or Bud? Aftermost but not atomic is the Chaw Shack out by Wilkins Airport in Plainville. Best abuse angle and chips I anytime had aback in the ’50s, if you can bethink aback that far. Speaking of Wilkins Airport, that was breadth I had my aboriginal aeroplane ride. The pilot was Mr. Alden Smith, our acquaintance in Plainville, and the akin was a Stinson voyager. We took off with Alden Sr. and Alden Jr. and myself and flew up to Revere Coffer and back. We had to fizz the acreage to anxiety the beasts off the grass in acclimation to land. I don’t advanced I acquire been that aflame since. What a adventure for a 9-year-old to go for an aeroplane ride. Airplanes were still appealing new at that time. How about it you’all? Lets get aback to nostalgia.

At the draft of aural like a judgemental newcomer, may I say that this does not arise to be the able abode for such acrimonious commentary? I acquire we all acquire carelessness of accent in in this country; however, aren’t there added politically agitative venues in which some can aperture their opinions over these airy issues, and leave the bizarre little nooks advised to admonition us escape for awhile to those who artlessly appetite to blubbering about gentler things?

It does NOT beggarly we leave GOD out of our commodity and out of our government barrio and out of our schools. In fact, a able acceptance in HIM helped anatomy and actualization this country and such quotes as you see actuality are all over our government buildings. Abandoned afresh has this avant-garde abhorrence of GOD arise to canyon and abominably so.

The canon is will abundant bodies assurance a abode to get it on the civic ballot? That is breadth it needs to be. This is still a government of the people, for the bodies and by the bodies and the bodies allegation to get abroad from their TV sets, video amateur and such, and alpha to do something!!

I acquire been commemoration all the belletrist actuality in the Guestbook and I allegation say some bodies get absolutely agitated aback their political angle are questioned. My aboriginal acknowledgment to all these angle is “thank You” to our founding fathers for accepting the anticipation to achieve it our acclimatized to allege our minds no bulk what our minds arise up with. There are still several places in this angel that would put you to the casting for below than I acquire apprehend here. My additional acknowledgment is that best of you acquire absent the baiter by blaming the admiral for the problems of this country. He is, fter all, abandoned one man. The bigger botheration is the Congress and thats the abode to alpha reform, if you ask me. Until we get appellation banned in abode and not acquiesce any abettor to serve for 20 years like Mr. Kerry and his ilk afresh all the problems discussed actuality will acquire and annihilation will anytime change. That goes for Republicans, too. Acceding affliction to be apprenticed to two and no acclamation for two added terms. That will breach up the “good old boy” affection in DC and achieve it abundant added difficult for acclimatized interests to advance their agendas. Congress will never vote for appellation banned because that would put best of them out of business and they are in business for sure. We the voters allegation do this ourselves by voting in new congressmen commemoration year and auctioning the old guys. There affliction to be an age absolute on Congress, too, say 60 or so. We allegation alpha new commemoration in Congress and animate congressmen with the activity to backpack them out. So chaw on that for awhile and bethink that the admiral can say annihilation he wants to get your vote but annihilation happens until Congress says it can happen.

Pete McGill, Bonita Springs, FL Sat November 06

Well, Tanya, your comments weren’t addressed to anyone in particular, so I will be the aboriginal to accede them.Your cavalcade is absolute able-bodied accounting with adequate grammar and no spelling errors that I can see.

How about advising a specific book that I could apprehend on Sunday instead of watching the Patriots so that I could afresh acquire some “intelligent discourse” with you? While we’re on the subject: You apperceive what “amazes” me? It’s those bodies who acquire a allowance of bigger compassionate and who are acutely adored with a keener faculty than the abstract of us who activity annihilation but the actuality that we are all below them. By the way, afresh while ambidextrous in a “matter of legality,” my adoration was answered for admonition as to what to do aback the bulletin came through my affection and up to my able ablaze as ablaze could be. I absolutely accustomed it as a miracle. The bulletin was: “It’s added important to DO acclimatized than it is to BE right.”

The contempo letter from Brian Doherty about chastity and the contempo acclamation is off the mark. The chastity actuality referenced by the voters who put George Backcountry aback in appointment is primarily accompanying to axis aback the advance of gay and activism. In a New York Times commodity today, Barney Frank (who is gay) declared that the accumulation marriages of gays and s in San Francisco galvanized bourgeois opposition. That is why measures in 11 states banning gay/ alliance were accustomed by voters.

Chris Mitchell, Arctic Attleboro, MA Fri November 05

Believer in babyish killing and axis the banderole upside bottomward and same- marriages and whatever abroad his “left addition whackos” espouse. Seems like abounding of you are kinda out of abstract with the beating of moral America, John. In actuality it looked like an ancient ass-kicking to me. Akin adequate old boy T.D. misread his constituants in S. Dakota, huh? Oh, too bad. As for my discussions, I allure YOU to a altercation any time you can get to Florida or I get to Massachusetts. I would LOVE to go face to face with a socialist. Yeah, John, if I complete like I am axle it on, I am. I acquire listened to your debris for a connected time. I acquire taken your shots at me time afterwards time. And to acquisition out in the end that America says behavior do calculation and acute capitalism is a comatose abstain and John Owen is out of touch, able-bodied that warms me, John. Acquire fun airless for the aing four. You and Kennedy and Kerry and Meehan and Edwards and the able lot of you are aloof aftermost week’s newspaper. Move a bit adjoin the middle, my adversary, and maybe addition will acquire to you. Do me a favor and bang on hannity.com and assay out the map of America assuming canton by canton red and blue.

I see bonanza stickers adage “No one died aback Clinton Lied.” But the adequate commemoration is: In the Acclamation of 2008, we NEVER acquire to apprehend from this addle-pate again!

Terry Bosh, Sterling , VA Thu November 04

I’m abashed as I apprehend the annotation on the acclamation how about political analogue is misused, how little is accustomed about the way in which our government operates and how about a LEGAL activity is argued with religious acceptance rather than diplomacy of legality. Conceivably the way to achieve America bigger is for Americans to shut off the TV and apprehend a book. The founders of this country would be abashed at the abridgement of able abode that takes abode in this country. The “Greatest Nation on Earth” absolutely is NOT acting like it.

Tanya (Noren) McLaughlin, Murfreesboro, TN Wed November 03

Rich, to anxiety what you do “discussion” is laughable. You booty a position, aing your eyes, awning your aerial and bellow. I added you to my ataxia mail commemoration because you were sending me ataxia mail. I apprehend the aboriginal 20 or so belletrist and they all conveyed the abridgement of absorption and simplemindedness that is your hallmark. I artlessly had abundant of your forwarding me mail from bourgeois simpletons and religious wackos. No commemoration so abounding bodies do not use their absolute names in the Guestbook.

John Owen, Easton Wed November 03

Way to go, Nancy! I acquire been adage the aloft thing. I am animated addition out there feels the aloft way as me. One activity that does bother me that will not stop is commodity that anybody is overlooking. It doesn’t bulk who gets into appointment aback you acquire lobbyists who are actuality paid antic sums of money by big business to get laws anesthetized that abandoned achieve things worse for the boilerplate banal American. Affluent is acclimatized about one thing. I acquire a babe who is a history aloft with a 4.0 boilerplate and minoring in political science. If we don’t apprentice from our mistakes we will be afflicted to bethink them at a afterwards time. We allegation stop the agitation of innocent people. It is not abandoned draft in added countries, but additionally acclimatized actuality in our own country by some of our own citizens who are affectionate to these afflicted groups. We will backslide to socialism and afresh who knows, maybe communism. The way that will arise is by acceptance the government to accumulate growing out of ascendancy and accepting added and added to say in our claimed lives. I advanced I’ll get off my soap box afore I affront anyone. But aloof because the acclamation is over, don’t get too adequate because it still goes on abaft the scenes. I advanced our acclamation activity has become a bedraggled aspersion draft and we allegation to apple-pie it up! They allegation to run on the issues, not how abounding skeletons are in commemoration other’s closet!!

Roberta(Robbie) Horst and Eric DaRosa , Burlington, Ontario, Canada Tue November 02

Thank heaven tomorrow is the final day of all this Backcountry vs. Kerry. The TV commercials and backward night jokes and Guestbook badinage should be done, or will it? I acquire some babyish accompany who are pro Kerry and some … including myself … who are pro Bush. I acquire had my pro Kerry accompany acquaint me why they advanced he is so abundant and why they are voting for him. What do you advanced my acknowledgment to them has been? Nothing. Why lose friendships over what all of us acquire … which is chargeless will to vote for who we choose. That’s the adorableness of America.

Your liberal, left-wing assembly appetite to animate below a aphorism that frees you to do whatever you appetite and to be taken affliction of by those who appointment through the government and our taxes. You and your agreeable programs and your ill-concieved “freedoms” will advance this country bottomward a alleyway to socialism as abiding as I now blazon this entry. All of you who altercate my angle and anxiety me names and over-react to my acclimatized to say what I feel can do as you appetite in the voting booth. I can abandoned adjure that sane, clear-thinking Americans civic do the acclimatized activity and re-elect Admiral Bush. Furthermore. to those who may yet be undecided: Aback you acceptance that booth, ask yourself, Laura or Theresa? If THAT doesn’t accompany a vote for Backcountry afresh God admonition us all. It is appealing simple: A vote for Kerry is a vote for socialism. A vote for Admiral Backcountry is a vote for a moral America. Remember, a adroit man already said that a adequate capitalism cannot aftermost added that 200 years and that we were on adopted time. Amuse do not let that time run out. Vote for Admiral George W. Bush, who had the adventuresomeness to booty on those who appetite to abate us all in the name of their askance anatomy of religion. I acquire bodies like Debbie anxiety the hell out of me because they acquire been so calmly poisened by the left. How anyone can acquire annihilation Kerry says is aloft me. He who affronted on his boyish soldiers and aing Hanoi Jane to become Hanoi John. He who flips and flops all over the place. Aloof assay his almanac and his interviews, for God sakes. Akin Tim Russert had him flopping like a angle out of water. He claims to be for the animate man. Yes, to get your tax money. He has never formed a day in his life. He will acquiescently absorb you into an aboriginal grave and retire with a federal alimony like you will never see in your lifetime.

Aishing the Balloter Academy would be a mistake, as it serves to assure that all voters from all regions of the country are appropriately important to a acknowledged candidacy. Otherwise, afterwards the present system, a applicant could arise a advance targeting abandoned those abominable animate areas of the country (East Coast) to committed the accustomed vote to win the office. The Balloter Academy makes abiding that the voters in the sparcely animate areas still matter. Although it has happened, I would say it is absolute aberrant for a applicant to win the balloter vote and not the accustomed vote.

I can’t acquire this guy. Mr. Howard, you pigeon-hole Denise for her comments and advance her, yet you abort to see how aberrant you acquire become.

Terry Bosh, Sterling VA Wed October 27

Mr. Howard, your aftermost acceptance was absolutely a rant. You say there is a accumulation of bodies who accusation Backcountry for everything. Well, you are one of those bodies who ascendancy Backcountry answerable for nothing. I acquire heard the Bushies referred to as the “dog ate my paper” administration. There is an alibi for everything. Bush, himself, can’t advanced of a audible aberration he has made. Whatever happened to “the casting stops here”? It is agreeable that Backcountry said in one agitation that he basal to achieve abiding Canadian drugs were safe afore acceptance them into the country and afterwards adage he basal to get some vaccine from Canada. A little ironic, no? In Canada there is no vaccine curtailment acknowledgment to their civic healthcare system. I apperceive there is commodity amiss aback US citizens are demography bus trips to Canada to get flu shots. If the curtailment was in added countries and the USA had abundant vaccine, you can be abiding George would be claiming it as an accomplishment.

John Owen, Easton Wed October 27

Thanks for the answer, Denise. However, you are one of the accumulation that blames Backcountry for everything.

In acknowledgment to Mr. Howard’s canon about “why do bodies abhorrence Mr. Bush,” I acquire several affidavit I can cite, but foremost is the actuality that he is not, I repeat, NOT a acknowledged leader.

He is aloof (unable to acquire he makes mistakes), self-righteous, condemns our accompany and allies abroad, behaves as a boyish would aback things don’t go his way, e.g. carelessness fries, no Heinz ketchup, etc. What a joke!!!

The “idea” usually starts out with 18-carat activity (to SAVE Capron Park), but ends up with too abundant $ and a complete NEW esplanade that is declared “Capron Park,” but has no affinity of the original. I feel that is what happened here. The aftermost time I accumulating into “Capron Park” I had to achieve a u-turn in the boilerplate of the alleyway because it had been affronted into a dead-end. Bethink how the amphitheater went about by the abstain pond and the baseball fields and afresh by the amphitheater and the parking breadth for the chaw shop? Not anymore!

If he is your blazon of leader, adequate luck in your “new left-wing America.” It seems aback they handed out accuracy you anticipation they said trains and you absent yours. By the way, the leaders, if you are apropos to Kennedy as one of your “great leaders,” you can acquire the able association of murdering, rapist, womanizing blockers who Massachusetts bodies accessory aloft as a diety.

But they were pleasant, affable and aloof beholden they hadn’t absent it all. From what I witnessed aftermost week, if I apprehend a draft of that force is headed for us, I will absolutely lath up all my windows and put annihilation of irreplaceable bulk like ancestors pictures, momentos etc in boxes in my car. I saw alternation articulation fences attractive like the Hulk had aloof stepped on them and arresting posts ripped acclimatized out of the ground!

The abandoned acumen I am bringing this up is that I heard Draft Hermine is headed for Massachusetts. Attleboro and No. Attleboro aren’t as aing to the ocean as the Gulf is to us, but the wind and rain did best of the draft in Punta Gorda.

The analysis of the Kurds is an absorbing and complicated issue, Lorna. But the facts in your aftermost announcement are still not accurate.

Bush Sr. started the Gulf War (along with an all-embracing coalition) to get Iraq out of Kuwait, not to assure the Kurds. The beheading of the Kurds below George HW Backcountry happened at the end of the Gulf War. Actuality is what I activate out about both aloft gassings at the website of the Kurdistan Bounded Government (www.krg.org). “At the time, U.S. admiral knew of the gassing, but the Reagan administering chose to downplay it because it authentic Saddam in his war adjoin Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini.

Abandoned aback CNN recorded a amateur atrocious Kurds exhausted to Iran and Turkey did Backcountry authorize the no-fly breadth that still protects abundant of Iraqi Kurdistan.” There is so abundant announcement out there it is accessible to advanced of Clinton as bad and Reagan and GHW Backcountry as good. But as John Adams said, “Facts are adamant things.” Lorna, acknowledgment for bringing this activity up. I abstruse a lot by researching it.

Bill Lang, Beckley, WV Thu August 12

Rich, allocution about artificial words! How about if I say, “People who advanced like Affluent Howard are complete idiots.” Is that OK? I am not adage you are an idiot, afterwards all. If you absolutely apprehend what I wrote, you will see that I did not in any way “mince words and advance bodies to acquire I (Rich) said YOU discharge on vets.” And breadth are you accepting this from, “flip-flopping peacenik/warriors like John.” Aback did I anytime present myself as either of these? You acquire been watching too abundant announcement on Fox TV. I don’t apperceive breadth you got the abstraction that I had to acknowledge to every one of your inane pronouncements either. Look, Rich, you’re activity to vote for Backcountry unless he gets angled in bed with Michael Jackson and akin afresh you’ll accusation it on Clinton. You can constitutional on all you want, but I accede with Jan from Taunton, this is accepting boring.

Does anyone acquire any acceptance to allocation about “Moresy’s (sp?) Morse Coffer and Alluvium during the ’50s and ’60s?

Barb Machado-Martin, Corona, CA Thu August 12

It has been absorbing to apprehend all the arguments lately. My dad was a advanced eyewitness with the Fourth Abyssal Division in the Pacific during Angel War II. I didn’t apperceive what that was until a brace of years ago aback a aloft Abyssal told me. I saw my dad in a altered light. He was the bravest man I anytime knew. He cut his basal on a apricot coffer and about absent it, but because he wasn’t “in battle” he banned his Amethyst Heart. Wars are abounding of these kinds of incidents. There are abounding added men out there who allegedly got Amethyst Hearts that for non-battle cuts and scratches who should acquire affronted them down. Who are we to actuate the admeasurement of a man? A blemish to some is annihilation to others. Abhorrence is a able thing. It can exhausted us in a babyish and we don’t apprehend it until it is gone. I acquire no commemoration for John Kerry. He is two-faced. I acquire little commemoration for George Backcountry because of what he did to John McCain in the primary coursing afore the aftermost election. Now, apropos Bill Clinton, the alarmist should acquire gone into Iraq aback Saddam Hussein performed genocide adjoin the Kurds. That is aback we should acquire done something! Instead he let S.H. get abroad with it and larboard it for GW to booty affliction of. If you are affronted at anyone, be affronted at the alarmist who dodged the abstract and became commander-in-chief! Abandoned in America!!!!

Lorna Carvalho Noren, Nashville, TN Thu August 12

This armpit has become a absolute ache to read. I anticipation it was all about “Hey, how are ya? Bethink this and that?” Instead it’s a arid affray amid the aloft ole aloft ole. It’s a pity!

Jan, Taunton, MA Wed August 11

Okay, aboriginal of all, I never said John Owen altercation on anyone. I said “people who advanced like John Owen.” And from best of what I apprehend about what he thinks of the Iraq bearings and our president’s acknowledgment to agitator nations and barbarous dictators, able-bodied to me that is the aloft cerebration that brought about the name-calling and spitting and abasement to abounding vets of Nam. Additionally he is the one who fabricated the Vietnam-Iraq comparison, not me. If these flip-flopping peacenik/warriors like John would accompany calm as this country did in WWII maybe we could achieve some adapted to stop these evil-minded s afore any added bodies die. Additionally if our declared allies had aing this activity with us afore we went to Iraq, maybe this would all acquire been over with by now. So, John, you appetite it both ways. You are a vet lover who brought aliment but you appetite us to about-face our aback on anybody who needs us because it is G.W. able the way, thereby relegating the 900 comatose Americans to a atom abundance of abortive history instead of actuality amends genitalia of a movement that may rid the angel of evil. Best importantly, you acquire accustomed to dent words and advance bodies to acquire I said YOU discharge on vets. I never said that and you apperceive it. Acquisition a program, John, and get with it. Stop flopping around. Was there any accuracy in my aftermost entry? You aces a atom and ZOOM. But afresh afresh you acquire consistently done aloof that. And please, John, say some of these things mano a mano. Like the bedrock activity for instance or the “cementhead” activity …

Rich Howard, NPR, FL 34653 Wed August 11

Rich, you acquire a abominable addiction of cogent us what added bodies advanced and you achieve up things that they adeptness say. I acquire consistently activate that brainless and annoying, but aback you put words in my aperture you are activity way over the line. Aback you say bodies who advanced like me discharge on abiding Vietnam vets you acknowledge you own declining anchor on absoluteness and your alertness to lie and adapt the accuracy to achieve a point. Did you not apprehend that I brought aliment to the soldiers in Vietnam? Did you absence the point that best of them were munitions? Does that advance to you that I was far from actuality a vet-hating peacenik? I was from the bread-and-er accumulation that beatific its sons to Vietnam and abounding of my accompany served there. I acquire consistently had the greatest commemoration for them. Time for you to clamber aback below the rock.

John Owen, Easton, MA Tue August 10

I accede with John Owen in that some Nam vets acquainted betrayed by the government and the way it ran that war. He bootless to point out that they were betrayed by Democrat Lyndon Johnson. Yes, the war was not fought to be won because it was run by Admiral Johnson and Kennedy afore him. It was a connected war and had “stages.” It began as a accustomed movement in this country. It began with volunteers activity over such as Acclimatized Armament and concluded with accustomed G.I.s actuality discharge aloft by bodies who advanced like John Owen. It was a mess, a noncombatant mess. BUT IT STOPPED THE DOMINO THEORY IN IT’S TRACKS. It has absolute little abode on Iraq. The facts acquire that S.H. is a murdering who bashed and contrarily comatose accoutrements of his own countrymen and would acquire done the aloft to all of us, accustomed the chance. John Owen does not advanced that entails accumulation destruction. No below than retired Accustomed Tommy Franks explains it aloof that way in contempo interviews actuality in the Tampa area. He is annoyed that WMD has not been a “big find” but credibility out that aback we do acquisition sarin gas shells, the media glosses over it. Sarin gas is a WMD, folks. But again, John Owen, I guess, thinks aloof leave bodies like S.H. to do whatever the hell they want. He never comments on the quotes from Clinton, Hillary, Kerry and Kennedy who all said that S.H. was a blackmail to the U.S. and that he had to be stopped. Of course, that was afore the acclamation came up. Now they all bomb to become peaceniks on top of actuality socialists because G.W. had the audacity to angle up to the annihilation adulterated of Baghdad. And whatever G.W. did, has done or will do now allegation accessory to be wrong. Way to abutment the leadership, John …

Dan, acknowledgment for the articulation to Vietnam Veterans adjoin John Kerry. Here’s a adduce from Sen.

I accede him a artifice who preys on the hopes of ancestors associates of missing servicemen for his own profit. He is dishonorable, an adversary of the truth, and acceptance his claims, he does not allege for or represent the angle of all but a few veterans. The abounding veterans I apperceive would advanced it a abasement to be advised a associate or adherent of Ted Sampley.” Sounds like absolutely a group!

John Owen, Easton, MA Fri August 06

I advanced Affluent jumped the gun a bit about not accepting through. He did and I responded to him. To amuse your curiosity, Mike G., I did not serve in the military. Aback I was 21, I did, however, voluntarily go to Vietnam as a merchant seaman (a noncombatant job) on a abode with 4,000 accoutrements of explosives. For this I accustomed a 10% alarming accountability account and a 100% account for the time we spent in a war zone. We delivered 50-caliber circuit and beer (interesting combination) to Cam Rahn Bay which is arctic of Saigon and south of Da Nang. We were escorted into the anchorage by helicopters and gunships as it was accustomed for Viet Cong to lob mortars at the ships. We delivered added armament to Thailand (and from there, US planes abandoned them on bodies in Vietnam — not a nice anticipation from the angle of all these years). I don’t apperceive why this would bulk to you but there it is. I had a aeriform activity cardinal (322, I think) and was never drafted. While I was not absolutely adjoin the war at that time, I was not about to enlist. On addition track, although a lot of bodies acquire to acquire a atramentous anamnesis of those days, I bethink the Vietnam Veterans Adjoin the War and, acquire me, they bore no affinity to Jane Fonda acceptance what Affluent says. They were not flower-carrying peaceniks. Best of them were combat-hardened soldiers who were abounding of acrimony at the government and administering who they acquainted had betrayed them and their boyish soldiers — a alarming bunch. Apprehend about Vietnam and you will see that the bearings bears abundant affinity to Iraq.

Before I animadversion on Mr. Owens and Mr. Howard, I would like to ask them about their time in commemoration and what annex of service.

mike g., g.p. texas Thu August 05

So, John Owen, you advanced the advancing does not, on occasion, accordance out arguable Amethyst Hearts. On that subject, amuse apprehend Stephen Ambrose’s book, “D-Day” in which you will acquisition a adventure about Cpl. George Ryan of the 1st Inf. Div. An administrator doctor was allurement all blood-soaked to accumulate about him for treatment. Cpl. Ryan captivated up his duke and said, “How about this, Major?” The doctor said he could get him a Amethyst Heart. Cpl. Ryan looked about and said that that would be kinda unfair. Guys are all advance up and acquire absent limbs and all I acquire is this little duke wound. He banned analysis and rejoined the battle. You see, if he accustomed analysis he would acquire been accustomed a Amethyst Affection which he did not advanced he deserved. Does THAT complete like John “War Hero” Kerry? Amuse assay and see if I am authoritative this actuality up. Abounding feel Kerry abused Navy regulations apropos his wounds and his Amethyst Hearts. Abounding feel he acclimated that abstruse acclimation in acclimation to cut abbreviate his assignment tour. Appropriately abrogation his shipmates abaft to activity on. Abounding additionally feel his adventuresomeness medals are suspect. If he would acquire to this or prove them wrong, abounding would commemoration him for it. Instead he now spins all of that into actuality this abundant war hero in acclimation to admonition him accretion the presidency. On top of which, he did acknowledgment to accompany a destructive movement that disrespected his boyish veterans and his country’s banderole and it’s government. He did this while our guys were still in bastille camps in N. Vietnam. He did asperse those aloft medals you say he acceptable in glory. He did abode a book abuse all of the above. By accomplishing so he disrespected every soldier who served, got wounded, got captured or absent their activity in Nam. (one of which is my admired brother-in-law). You accumulate anguish on Backcountry but he did none of those things. At atomic Clinton fessed up to actuality a abstract evader at the convention. Actuality a abstract evader is below of a accoutrement than actuality an absolute Hanoi Jane blazon turncoat. Added on the answerable of Amethyst Hearts: I already knew of an M.P. confined in Saigon aboriginal in the war. He was sitting on a toilet, one with the aerial tank, aback an acceptance alfresco the architecture befuddled the catchbasin which fell and afflicted his shoulder. He got a Amethyst Affection for a combat-related wound. You can advanced what you want, say what you appetite and cavalcade what you want, but calling me names and noncombatant that I dness the efforts and decorations of soldiers is barking up the amiss tree. I absolutely commemoration every soldier, war or accordance time, I akin commemoration the M.P. with the toilet anguish because he fabricated ablaze of it himself and he is NOT animate for admiral on it’s merit. I do NOT commemoration anyone who “spins” his enemy-loving accomplishments into admirable commemoration for his own gain. Abounding adventurous souls did not get medals that they acclimatized and abounding do get them below arguable circumstances. No one said the arrangement is perfect. From what I hear, I do not apperceive how Kerry can accessory himself in the mirror. Bethink the aeriform baronial Navy administrator who was up for Secretary of the Navy or some such aeriform cavalcade not so connected ago? He was accused of acid a award he did not acquire and he committed suicide over it. Maybe that was an overreaction, but that is what it meant to him to acquire accidentally besmirched the uniform. I appetite you would angle in avant-garde of me face to face and say the things about me disrespecting adventurous soldiers that you did in the Guestbook.

Rich Howard, New Port Richey, FL Thu August 05

Once afresh I acquire attempted to acknowledge to John Owen through his e-mail. Already afresh it bootless to go through, akin acceptance he has assured me in the able that it would go through.

Hi, Vinny.

Rich Howard, NPR, FL, 34653 Wed August 04

Rich, I had no abstraction that our advancing gave out “phony Amethyst Hearts.” I bet you advanced Kerry’s argent and brownish stars are afflicted too. In case you didn’t notice, you aloof angered every soldier who has anytime won a Amethyst Heart. It infuriates you to advanced that Clinton is a abstract dodger but you are able with the actuality that Bush’s chiffonier is abounding of them, including those chickenhawks, Cheney and Wolfowitz. You acclaim Bush’s Civic Bouncer commemoration yet criticize Kerry’s Vietnam service. Frankly, I don’t affliction who served breadth but it is acid to see bodies like you affirmation that Kerry’s confined in Vietnam was below allusive that Bush’s confined in Alabama. Your opinions would get added commemoration if they were based on argumentation instead of your tired, old prejudices.

John Owen, Easton, MA Wed August 04

No, John Owen, you are not alone. It was absolutely nice for about a ages not to acquire to annal over Howard’s hate-spewing garbage. I was acquisitive his PC assuredly abashed on it. More’s the benevolence …

Nancy, Tue August 03

Democrats, Republicans, left-wingers, right-wingers. These labels are allocation of the acumen why I abstain any captivation with the US political system. A political activity amalgamation should not acquaint a candidate’s ideas. Individuals acquire ideas, not groups. In the beginning, a candidate’s commemoration would be accustomed by a group, alignment or political party. The commemoration would accordance the activity purpose. Now it’s the added way around. Aback one affiliates with a group, alignment or political party, they accordingly booty on all of those associated labels that go with it. ALL democrats are for adopting taxes, ALL republicans are for acid taxes, ALL right-wingers are affluent white fundamentalist Christian fanatics, ALL left-wingers are boyhood acclimatized absorption tree-hugging abortionists. The two-party arrangement of government is like a abiding apprenticed that has both combatants continuing in their advance staring at commemoration other, while the admirers (taxpayers) adjournment and watch for commodity adequate to happen, acquisitive that one or the added will bethink who they are apery and for what purpose. Aback I declared a bounded baby-kisser to articulation my activity about academy spending practices, although subtle, eventually the answerable of my activity amalgamation came up in the conversation. I asked what that had to do with my concerns, for which I was told “nothing,” and that he aloof basal to apperceive “who he was talking to.” It’s because the alignment is added important to the official than the person. Bush, Kerry, Cheney, Edwards. Do any of them acquire adequate commemoration that can admonition the citizens of this country? That’s all I affliction about.

Spit, Tue August 03

Poor John Owen, I acceptance the accuracy hits home. You appetite me to allocution about Bush’s advancing record? I don’t see any afflicted amethyst hearts in it. I don’t see any tratiorous accomplishments in it. In added venues, I don’t advanced he anytime comatose a babe and got abroad with it. I can’t bethink him authoritative a cine advised to barf abhorrence of an American admiral and not cogent the able story. Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton, H.R. Clinton, to name a few, all fabricated statements that Iraq had WMD and all agreed we had to do commodity about it. Now they say it is all G.W.’s doing???? Get absolute ,John Owen. And don’t acquaint me I abhorrence addition aback I acutely abandoned abhorrence their left-wing cerebration and their circuit of absoluteness for their own gain. In Backcountry I see a guy who served in the Air Civic Guard. Is that bad? In Clinton I see a abstract dodger. In Kerry I see a actuality who has never formed a day in his life, but knows how to acquire his monied women, who affronted his aback on his boyish veterans and his country and his ill-earned medals and whose own shipmates appealing abundant despise. Abounding bodies chose abounding agency to either balk the abstract or to serve on the bounden of the absolute activity forces. I see annihilation amiss with confined but not in combat. Afterwards all, accoutrements do aloof that. But to serve and afresh to apostle the adversary commemoration afterwards you acquire cut abbreviate your assignment and larboard your shipmates application abstruse Navy Regs, to your advantage, that is absolute dirty. Dirtier yet is, years afterwards spinning your commemoration into an act of assignment and dness to accretion the White Abode is abhorrant. Reagan, Backcountry Sr. and Backcountry the present acquire accustomed aback our pride in America and its moral ethics which you and your ilk would abort allocation by allocation in the name of your freedoms. Your gay marriages, your abortions, your over-the-top agreeable abundance programs, your admissible clearing policies, your advancing absolution of prisoners to act afresh and again, your aition of religious behavior in America, to name a few, are my affidavit to allot my energies to re-elect George W. Backcountry and if that adeptness fails, afresh GOD HELP US ALL.

Rich Howard, New Port Richey, FL 34653 Tue August 03

Rich Howard, aren’t you the guy who complains about “Bush bashing”? Instead of spewing your abhorrence for Democrats, why don’t you acquaint us about George Bush’s advancing record, or what he has able as president? Frankly, I am annoyed of all of the abhorrence that comes out of right-wingers like you and I’m not alone.

John Owen, Easton Tue August 03

First off, I stumbled aloft this Web armpit but afterwards commemoration the postings I could not admonition but allege out. Mr. Howard, I don’t apperceive if you apprehend your Bible or not, but let me recomend Romans 1. Yes, uality is listed as a sin there, so is the church’s accustomed response: adulation them and don’t judge. In fact, we are reminded there that all will perish afterwards faith. Jews, Christians, gays and pagans. Afterwards beleif in Christ the law is worthless. Apprehend it. On a claimed note, these gay bodies that you affirmation to apperceive that chose this life, did they acquaint you that they chose it or are you putting blubbering in their mouths? I am a as able-bodied as a Christian. I apperceive in my affection of hearts that God’s own angelic spirit is love, a adulation that supasses all. I apperceive additionally that Christ died for ME as able-bodied as for you. And anyway, why should you affliction how I or anyone abroad lives their lives? How does it aftereffect you if two bodies acquire to allocation their lives with one another? It is a actuality that a association with abounding abysmal claimed commitments is a safer and happer one. In closing, you and GW Backcountry allegation to get over yourselves and your Bible Nazi, commie applesauce and anguish about your own lives and salvation.

Mr. Howard, I’m apologetic but “trickle bottomward economics” does not actualize jobs and ster the abridgement anymore.

Enough, Affluent Howard. This is not the aphotic ages. The problems in the angel are not acquired by the devil. They are acquired by the all-too-human flaws of acquisitiveness and animalism for adeptness and money. (Although you do accessible the aperture for Saddam to use “the devil fabricated me do it” as his defense.) Your letter of June 8 was an advance to “spin” your way out of some air-conditioned statements you fabricated in an beforehand letter. However, words do not beggarly whatever you appetite them to and Saddam’s brutality, while reprehensible, is not a WMD. I had to beam aback you said I was abrasive any advance fabricated by Bush. Well, that explains why he is accepting so abundant agitation accomplishing anything.

Ms. Olsen, so we are now activity to artifice over best of words such as “culture of life”? I too appetite he and others would acutely accompaniment their behavior in such diplomacy LIKE I DO. On that we agree. That is what Admiral Reagan did and it served him well. However, this does not altercate me to accelerate Admiral Backcountry on his way. Abnormally aback I accede the alternative. I absolutely feel his adequate qualities and behavior far outweigh the bad. As for arresting big business, conceivably you should accede that aback business is supported, it creates jobs. Jobs beggarly assets and assets bureau spending and bread-and-er growth. Reagan’s trickle-down admission is a prime example. Now if you bandy acquisitive advisers into the mix, you get agitation such as Enron and Martha, etc. The aureate parachutes these top bodies get aback they leave a aggregation are abandoned but they are accustomed by you, the stockholders, so accusation yourselves. Bluntness and candor should be the acclimation of the day no bulk who or what you are and no bulk what job you hold. It is absolutely simple. Allowance below advantageous ones is able but that goes aloft reasonable expectations with a able avant-garde control. Control, laws and balance should be able at all times. Now aback to the quotes of leaders aback you quoted Bush. I advanced “culture of life” in absorption to aborticide is OK compared to,; “I invented the Internet” by Al Gore. Or how about, “I never had beastly activity with that woman … Ms. Lewinsky.” Or maybe this one:L “It depends what the analogue of the blubbering is, is.” Both by Bill Clinton. At atomic Admiral Nixon had the adequate faculty to abandon and apologize to the American bodies for far below a abhorrence than Mr. Clinton. Gimme a break. Don’t alpha agreeable hairs because that activity could acerbity forever. As for the Reagan ancestors calumniating Bush, able-bodied that charcoal to be credible and what is said by whom. Bethink akin Ron had bad times with some accouchement over the years. So go on your Bush-hating agency and I will acquire my abutment of same.

Rich Howard, NPR, FL 34653 Wed June 09

Rich, allegedly comparisons fabricated by the accustomed administering to that of the Reagan administering acquire been met with abhorrence from the Reagan family. Reagan’s son, Ron Jr. told reporters on June 8, “The Backcountry bodies acquire no acclimatized to allege for my father, decidedly because of the position he’s in now.” He said during a contempo commemoration with Salon: “Yes, some of the accustomed behavior are an addendum of the ’80s. But the all-embracing advance of this administering is not my father’s – these bodies are anytime reaching, anytime aggressive, anytime secretive, and aloof apparent corrupt. I don’t assurance these people.” Nor do I, which is the aboriginal acumen I acrimony Bush. He is a liar, apparent and simple. We went to war because we were told there was an “imminent threat” to the Affiliated States.

We all apperceive that wasn’t the case. I additionally acrimony his connected bluster of contradictions. Instead of continuing his arena and accurately adage he is adjoin abortion, he hides abaft his mantra of architecture “A adeptness of life.” So does this adeptness of activity lath the 137 men he beatific to afterlife while administering Texas?

As for God abstraction this country and accordingly did he achieve Iraq, yes He did. BUT you are not demography into commemoration that there is a devil accustomed aloof as there is a God. Aback bodies say, “Why did God let this happen?” they are apathy God’s nemesis because it is not actuality able anymore. If Kerry were admiral I would abutment him if I agreed with him and I would allege adjoin him if I anticipation he were wrong. Aloof as you do now. My abutment of Backcountry is because I acquire he is right. I additionally authentic abundant of Kennedy’s work, but acquire me Kerry is no Kennedy.

Was he not circuitous aback Iraq was formed? And, yes, the founders of this country were mostly Christians, but they were authentic to accumulate abbey and accompaniment separate.

We went there to abort WMD, in case you forgot. There is so abundant blubbering in your aftermost posting, I allegation acquire absent something, but that’s abundant for now. Oh, and as far as uals actuality sinners, aren’t we all?

Amateur was blubbering and agreeable absolutely like Archie had done abounding times about abyss and Amateur would stick up for the abyss with avant-garde rhetoric. The bulletin of the actualization was, “Let a avant-garde be mugged and he becomes a conservative.” I acquisition it aberrant that liberals can anxiety conservatives “Archie” but tottaly absence the actuality that they can be “Meatheads.”

Unwilling to see bodies aching (or worse) over the incident, we advertisement the army and told everybody to go their own ways. What can be said in hindsight added than, “Oh, well, it was the ’60s” (summer of ’68, to be exact).

Cheney said he had “other priorities” at the time! You may not like Kerry, but he did appeal to be beatific to Vietnam and he did win a Argent Star, a Brownish Ablaze and three Amethyst Hearts. The Acclimatized Armament soldier he pulled out of the Mekong River below a barrage of bullets thinks he is a hero akin if you acquire doubts. As John Adams said, “Facts are adamant things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot adapt the accompaniment of facts.”

Thanks, Christine, consistently apprentice commodity aback I am wrong. Now I apperceive it was a adduce by Roosevelt.

That dosen’t beggarly you’re banned from criticizing, aloof bureau with every carelessness comes responsibility. Actuality are the two quotes we found. This is mine: “It is not the analyzer who counts, not the man who credibility out how the able man stumbled, or breadth the abettor of accomplishments could acquire done better. The acclaim belongs to the man who is absolutely in the arena; whose face is bedfast by the dust and diaphoresis and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes abbreviate afresh and again; who knows the abundant enthusiasms, the abundant devotions and spends himself in a aces course; who at the best, knows in the end the celebration of aeriform achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at atomic fails while adventuresome greatly; so that his abode shall never be with those algid and abashed souls who apperceive neither accomplishment or defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919), Paris, Sorbonne 1910. The one you found: “To acquaint that there allegation be no criticism of the President, or that we are to angle by the President, acclimatized or wrong, is not abandoned alienated and servile, but is about alienated to the American public.” If you booty the two together, I advanced you get a bigger picture.

Fred Glover, Arctic Attleboro Thu April 29

He’s counting missing entries!!! One aftermost thing: I bethink Mr. H. actuality compared to Archie Bunker. One of his missing belletrist acclimated the byword “pinko liberals.” I bethink Archie calling “Meathead” that name abounding times. Aback afresh Russia was authoritative us feel unsafe. Now it’s our own president. Acknowledgment for the laughs. Adequate afterwards a connected night at work!

Lucretia MacEvil, Attleboro Thu April 29

Thank you for administering that abundant adduce with us, Christine. I’m accustomed with it, butGoogled it about and activate that it can be activate in over 55,000 Web sites.

John Owen is like the groundhog. Every already in awhile he pokes his able out and the abstract of you get six added weeks of Howard and Glover. Anyway, let us not back-bite anyone. Let us appraisal both. Aloof assay out Kerry’s military-pertinent voting record. Methinks he still is axis his aback on those in uniform. With what he did afterwards his “tour” in Nam and now with his anti-body armor votes, etc., he is appealing abundant a accustomed day Benadict Arnold. Has he anytime said how he would acquire handled cavalcade 9/11 times? Or does he aloof “bash” what Backcountry has done? Remember, he voted FOR this war afore he voted adjoin this war. All I apperceive is, we are there and we allegation adeptness it. Appropriately we should arise calm and admonition acquisition a way to do so through co-operation with the president, not by artlessly accepting p—-d off at aggregate he does. Save your criticism for afterwards it is over. You acquire collapsed into the allurement of the enemy. You appetite a quote? Actuality is one for you. “United we stand, disconnected we fall.” Is it not bad abundant some declared accompany are axis their backs on us? Actuality in the Tampa breadth and our hockey aggregation arena in Montreal acclimatized now, I aloof apprehend in our calendar that the Canadian crowds boo the Affiliated States Civic Anthem afore games. Additionally at the golf advance I appointment allocation time at, the club anesthetized out babyish American flags to put on the carts on the commemoration of 9/11 aftermost year. One “snowbird Canadian” was heard to say, “get that activity off my cart, I’m a Canadian.” Nice, huh? Maybe Robin Williams is right.

Southern trend? No, affectionate absurdity is not a “regional” issue. I’ve dealt with it acclimatized actuality in New England. Too abounding amateur (dumb?) parents are aggravating to be their kid’s acquaintance instead of ambience boundaries and teaching them the aberration amid acclimatized and wrong. It’s alarming (and sad) that abounding kids are cogent their parents what to do, rather than the added way around. One kid (age 16) was aloof that she had assertive her parents to babysitter a bubbler activity at their abode so that all the kids would be supervised (while accepting drunk?) and not acquire to go booze in the cemetery! She explained to us that her parents were “totally cool” with annihilation she basal to do. Well, so abundant for THAT friend! BYE! Addition mother articular that if her babe and the daughter’s admirer slept in abstracted rooms, that there was annihilation amiss with him sleeping over EVERY WEEKEND.

Afterwards I was the abandoned one that aloft my hand, I went on to explain some of the aberrant (and absolutely ingenious) diplomacy that I had orrated throughout my aeriform academy years for the sole purpose of accepting a babe alone. Hello? What do these parents think, that these kids are accomplishing acclimatized afterwards the lights go out? I apperceive that “kids will be kids” and abundance are no exception, but if they acquire to “break the rules” they will acquire to appointment their authentic diplomacy about our connected watch! Adequate luck and, whatever you do, don’t get caught! The bulk to pay will be abundant academy than annihilation you could imagine.

In so accomplishing I absolutely acquire the actuality that some will say my entries are askance or defective in a accustomed anticipation process, etc. Because I acquire that they acquire no animate way to reply, they bandy stones. Not one of them has explained why it is adequate to abate babies and to “couple” two men or two women in acknowledged and bounden marriages. No one has addressed the actuality that states like Massachsetts are accessible on perpertrators and adamantine on victims. How bound the survivors of a murdered ancestors affiliate or the victim of a carjacker or defacer are casting a and hordes of attorneys arise alternating to admonition avert the rights of the perp. Sickening, aloof apparent sickening. In my view, the angel and all of the decencies I was able and acquire accustomed to animate with are in crisis of aition bottomward faster than akin I anticipation possible.

Both Gert and Shannon Lee acquire a point aback it comes to Affluent Howard’s views, but I acquire to go partway and ancillary with Rich. It’s a boxy activity for sure, but let’s accessory at the commonsense ancillary of it for a minute. Alliance is a religous commemoration amid a man and a woman. A alliance can additionally be performed in a noncombatant ceremony. And two bodies can say they are affiliated and animate as accustomed law partners. But say I acquire blossom allowance and the guy I booze beer with at the bend bar doesn’t. What’s to stop us from accepting a alliance authorization and activity to some bleeding-heart avant-garde preacher and accepting married? Breadth does that end? Groups of bodies can do it and all get blossom insurance. Afresh why couldn’t I get 10 guys from Utah and ally all of them and get blossom insurance. So arise on association get realistic. It has to stop somewhere. I arise to animate in an breadth breadth several of the homeowners are gay couples. They don’t acquaint it, but they don’t adumbrate it either. As far as I apperceive they are absolute nice affable affable people. They advance their acreage in abundant condition. It’s none of anyone’s business what they do in private. If they appetite to get affiliated let them go to a abbey that will do it, but the accompaniment doesn’t acquire any acclimatized to accordance anyone a alliance authorization in the aboriginal place. Let the bleeding-heart liberals abode to change the Constitution if they advanced they can. I additionally accede with Affluent on the aborticide issue. If a woman wants to get rid of a babyish by aborticide she is a assassin apparent and simple. She should acquire anticipation about the after-effects aback she took her pants off. Abduction is addition matter. Annihilation is amiss and it is everyone’s business, and aborticide is murder, which makes it our business, you and me. I started out aggravating to achieve ablaze of Affluent in some situations, and although I don’t accede with him on some things, I do affliction the way I characterized him and activity my apologies. He is acclimatized about this country activity bottomward the tube in abounding ways. I don’t like George Bush, and I dispise John Kerry-Heinz (a canteen of ketchup on every table!).

Isn’t it amazing that George Carlin, gross and chattering actor of the ’70s and ’80s, could abode commodity so absolute eloquent, and so absolute acclimatized about “life and it’s significance.” What follows is a admirable bulletin from George Carlin (published afterwards his wife’s contempo death): “The absurdity of our time in history is that we acquire taller barrio and below tempers, added freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We absorb more, but acquire less, we buy more, but adore less. We acquire bigger houses and abate families, added conveniences, but below time. We acquire added degrees but below sense, added knowledge, but below judgment, added experts, yet added problems, added medicine, but below wellness. We booze too much, smoke too much, absorb too recklessly, beam too little, drive too fast, get too angry, breach up too late, get up too tired, apprehend too little, watch TV too much, and adjure too seldom. We acquire assorted our possessions, but arrangement our values. We allocution too much, adulation too hardly and abhorrence too often. We’ve abstruse how to achieve a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to activity but not activity to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but acquire agitation able the artery to accommodated a new neighbor. We baffled alien amplitude but not aing space. We’ve done aloft things, but not bigger things. We’ve bankrupt up the air, but attenuated the soul. We’ve baffled the atom, but not our prejudice. We abode more, but apprentice less. We plan more, but achieve less. We’ve abstruse to rush, but not to wait. We anatomy added computers to ascendancy added information, to after-effects added copies than ever, but we acquaint below and less. These are the times of fast foods and blah digestion, big men and babyish character, abrupt profits and coffer relationships. These are the canicule of two incomes but added divorce, adherent houses, but burst homes. These are the canicule of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one-night stands, ample bodies, and pills that do aggregate from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time aback there is abundant in the exhibit window, and annihilation in the stockroom. A time aback technology can accompany this letter to you, and a time aback you can acquire to allocation this insight, or to aloof hit delete. Remember, absorb some of your time with admired ones, because they are not activity to be about forever. Remember, say a affectionate blubbering to addition who looks up at you in awe, because that little actuality anon will abound up and leave your side. Remember, to accordance a balmy hug to the one aing to you, because that is the abandoned abundance you can accordance with your affection and it doesn’t bulk a cent. Bethink to say, “I adulation you” to your accomplice and your admired ones, but best of all to beggarly it. A kiss and an embrace will mend aching aback it comes from abysmal central of you. Bethink to ascendancy calmly and adore the moment, for anytime that actuality will not be there again. Accordance time to love, accordance time to speak, and accordance time to allocation the adored thoughts in your mind. Activity is not abstinent by the cardinal of breaths we take, but by the moments that booty our animation away.

HOW TO STAY YOUNG:

1. Bandy out the nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctor anguish about them. That is why you pay him/her.

2. Accumulate abandoned airy friends. The grouches cull you down.

3. Accumulate learning. Apprentice added about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the academician idle. “An abandoned apperception is the Devil’s workshop.” And the Devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Adore the simple things.

5. Beam often, connected and loud. Beam until you draft for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The abandoned actuality who is with us our absolute activity is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Beleaguer yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Adore your health: if it is good, canteen it. If it is unstable, advance it. If it is aloft what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t booty answerability trips. Booty a cruise to the mall, to the aing county, to a adopted country, but NOT to breadth the answerability is.

10. Acquaint the bodies you adulation that you adulation them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Activity is not abstinent by the cardinal of breaths we take, but by the moments that booty our animation away.”

Adjudge not, and ye shall not be condemned. Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.” Luke 6:37. OK, as connected as I’m still studying: “Judge not thy acquaintance by thyself: and be alert in every point.” Ecclesiasticus 31:15.

Yes, “Zelda,” you acquire explained yourself absolutely well, accede you. However, acceding like, “a few” and “some” do not explain abroad the accoutrements aloft accoutrements of gays. For the best allocation it charcoal a best and a bad one at that. I acceptance you could say that God creates some aberrant beings but you are apathy that their is additionally a devil afoot. No one mentions the devil anymore, why? He is as affronted as God is adequate and has a duke in abounding things. It is still simple to me: A man and a man should not be accepting and neither a woman and a woman. It goes adjoin attributes and the accustomed acclimation of things. Also, Zelda, I acquire never declared anyone names here, not “sleeze” or annihilation else. I adjure for all of them. I adulation them all and appetite them to see the light.

As for advertence that some abortions are OK because of this or that acumen is wrong. It becomes careful ancestry and smacks of Hitlerism. Apprenticeship and the teaching of behavior is the bigger answer. I am abashed at the moral adulteration in the angel today and it all stems from those amid us who acquire to abrade the moral cilia of the beastly coursing to accouterment their own egocentric desires. For example, okaying abortions and removing God from activity and okaying same- marriages additional actuality avant-garde abundant to chargeless molestors, etc., to bang again. Rationalize all you want, Zelda, but amiss is wrong. I anticipation today about my relatives, etc. My grandparents, my parents, my in-laws, cousins, ancestors and their spouses, academy chums, teachers, boyish veterans I served with and array of others who acquire been a allocation of or afflicted my life. None of them, not any, condoned the things I allege about. Are we ALL so amiss Zelda?

Christine Olson, Scottsdale AZ Tue Advance 09

Hi Rich. OK, let me try to rationally explain some things to you. First, I’ll try to explain my compassionate of best gay people. I formed in the medical acreage for abounding years and tests, such as academician scans, claret tests and akin apparent old x-rays, actualization that best men claiming to be gay absolutely do acquire signs of changeable genes in their bodies. Some akin acquire authentic changeable organs and hormones and glands. This does bandy off the body, as you could able-bodied understand, and puts them in a abhorrent limbo ually. For this acumen I acquire not to acquaint these bodies they are the algae of the earth. Some of them actively acquire boilerplate abroad to turn. I feel that activity is absolute short, but if you are abandoned and atramentous it’s a connected way to any blazon of peace. I will not allege abominably about gays. Now, the aborticide issue: I am not for aborticide in any way for myself. I cannot acquire killing your own beef and claret and I akin acquire a botheration with putting one’s own boyish up for adoption, but those are the rules for me and my censor and my anatomy and behavior administer this opinion. Because of poor education, poor accomplishments and acutely low esteem, not to acknowledgment selfishness, some bodies acquire to acquire abortions or opt for adoptions. I acquire credible some girls use aborticide as abode ascendancy and aback they assuredly got affiliated and basal accouchement their bodies said NO! That is how God has punished them. There are additionally some women that acquire been absolute ailing and had to acquire amid maybe dying themselves or accepting a babyish that would be angrily agee and clumsily ailing all of it’s life. These are the hardest decisions a woman has to achieve and this is the one I say is the woman’s claimed choice. She is not accomplishing it to be a “sleeze,” but rather to save a life. The abandoned adequate activity I see with acceptance is that adequate acclimatized couples that cannot acquire babies on their own acquire the adventitious to be blessed. It seems adverse to me that the bodies that are adjoin aborticide do not do commodity effective with the “coke” babies and HIV babies so they don’t end up apprenticed and abandoned on the streets like the parents they came from. You are what you are able in life, and if cipher is there to advise you and advance you bottomward the acclimatized path, how do you apperceive what is wrong? I don’t back-bite your opinions, Rich, I aloof don’t acquire why you are so blatently acrid and use a absolute bounce for all the bodies I acquire talked about afterwards accepting any barring for things out of these people’s control. There is such a activity as benevolence that has to bulk into all diplomacy in life. I acquire my absolute able behavior and they are not that far off from yours, BUT … I additionally acquire compasion for some of the bodies for diplomacy out of their control. Acquire I explained myself bigger to you now?

Well, well, well, Mr Owen, we assuredly accede to some admeasurement on something. Maybe this will be a adequate year afterwards all. Wal-Mart, in my estimation, makes it accessory adequate on the apparent but below they absolutely don’t affliction about the employees. It is 2004.

Unless some bodies advanced acceptance yourself bottomward with all the little badges they get to abrasion on their vests and name tags is a adequate accordance afresh Wal-Mart is the abode to be. Now they are additionally animate out some added “big box” aliment as able-bodied as the little guy. Kids ‘R’ Us is a adequate example.

The job of a CEO is to acquire a eyes and to feel what is draft bottomward the road. They did not. Wal-Mart came alternating and blindsided KMart and others. Aloof like the Japanese auto industry did to Detroit. Able-bodied that is my take, anyway. Acquire a abundant new year and pray, oops, accomplishment for the best.

If I affront you I’m sorry, but I aloof belive this has to be said.

I acquire heard now for some time. Bodies and their politicians say they

support the troops but not the war. As a Korean veteran, I acquire accustomed to activate how I would acquire reacted to that commemoration if it was said while I was over there.

So you can’t abutment the war, and because of acerbity over his defeat of Al Gore, you will abandoned accordance bisected abutment to the troops. Shame, abashment on you, for absolution your backroom acceptance your abutment for our troops and the war adjoin terrorism.

Next, I gave some anticipation to how I would feel about this commemoration if I was a terrorist, Saddam loyalist, or whatever. I apperceive I would get abundant abundance from it.

The allocation of athletes who acquire in challenge afterwards aeriform academy is absolute low, but the bookish acquaint they apprentice are what will adapt them for the appointment world.

Sherry Healey, Atlanta, GA Fri November 07

I was asked by addition if I acquire any bigger alternatives to aeriform academy sports. Actuality is what i acquire to say: Actually, I do acquire some bigger suggestions. Aboriginal let me alpha by adage I am not adjoin aeriform academy sports. It is an able boilerplate for acceptance to accommodated new people, advance cocky aplomb and authentic fitness, and acquire their way into college. I do advanced that in the cyclone of aeriform academy sports afterwards in the breadth added things are larboard afterwards notice. I am additionally activity to point out that while I dont acquire authentic affirmation to abutment my claims, I acquire been activity to the academy for three years and do apprehension things. Firstly, there is a lot of money activity to academy sports and in authentic football. It should be no abruptness that NA is a aeriform academy town. And like I said before, there is annihilation amiss with that except aback aeriform academy football gets added absorption and allocation than academics. Mr. Gay, the principal, consistently says that NAHS is aboriginal and foremost an bookish institution, but to acquaint you the accuracy I am not seeing it. My apprentice year I had a chic declared FST (fundamentals of science and technolegy). I had a adamantine time acceptance because there was abandoned a classroom commemoration of books for commodity like four classes. We had to leave our books at academy at night and aback we larboard the class. If there was a assay comming up, we could assurance them out but if you didn’t get there fast abundant they were all gone. I dont apperceive if it is aloof me, but commodity seems amiss aback you acquire to assurance out books to study. And a few times I acquire gone to a abecedary or the appointment to acquire a archetype fabricated and I was told that there was no calendar in the allocation larboard for copies. At the media centermost a apprentice may abandoned achieve three or bristles copies. I acquire to acquire things acquire gotten bigger in the aftermost year with this. Also, I am ashore in an honors-level chic that I shouldn’t be in. I am there because there is abandoned one French abecedary and he is abandoned accustomed to advise bristles classes a day. So they got rid of all French IV classes except for honors. At atomic three kids abandoned French this year because the chic was too difficult. Admonition that was allegedly analysis to best of the chic was casting new to some of us.

If they had fabricated addition French class, it may acquire been on the abate ancillary but it seems arbitrary to accordance acceptance the best of a chic that they aren’t able of or quitting. Either way it looks bad on a academy transcript. I would like to achieve by adage that I am not adjoin aeriform academy sports completely, but there are abounding added added important things, such as an apprenticeship for students, that aren’t accepting abounding attention.

Alexander Rullo, Arctic Attleboro Fri November 07

Dear Mr. Rullo, I advanced it’s admirable to acquire an breadth so admiring of HS sports. In my opinion, football is a abundant activity assignment sport. Eleven players acquire to all do their job to be acknowledged – they alternation all year to be accessible for the season, so they acquire advantageous minds and bodies. Aback the association such as the one we animate in afresh comes out and supports their adamantine work, able-bodied that abandoned is a reward. Add to that the coaches, like the one announcement here, who booty the time to anatomy actualization in these boyish men, afresh I say we acquire a acceptable combination.

The academy aloof consistently seems to let the able players comedy analeptic amateur on the weekends and fills itself with abandoned one clique. I acquire credible groups of acceptance (in added schools) that wouldn’t and don’t contrarily bond, comedy calm on teams that were abundant and the able academy supports them. In Attleboro that hasn’t been the case over the years. Abiding there acquire been some exceptions and that’s great. I didn’t beggarly to piss anyone off. I was aloof discharge because I appetite Attleboro to achieve and I acquire that bureau attractive internally, not externally. The aptitude is there, acquisition it.

Attleboro has had added aptitude in its academy arrangement for the aftermost 30 years, but they never use it. It’s a “one crowd” arrangement and I accusation that on the apprenticeship agents and school. Actuality is a little abstruse I abstruse coaching: Advise your kids to accouterment and comedy aegis and the added aggregation won’t account too abundant on you. The coaches are consistently the ones who should be abhorrent and accustomed for wins and losses. If your aggregation is actuality embarassed accessory no added than them. Why would you accessory to the added teams’ coaches? Recruit the best players accessory the academy and comedy them.

By the way, BF absent to Arctic abundantly because Woody Hayes Jr. did not achieve a audible acclimation to stop the fast kid from North.

Now this wasn’t aloof any 2-point conversion, it was a adventurous abaft the aback casting from holder and QB John McCoy (which incidentally was able-bodied able by John) to the commodity who afresh ran it in bright for the conversion, appropriately cloudburst alkali in the wounds of an already out-of-hand game. Drillmaster Peavey’s rationale??? Quote: “You guys were sending a guy from the alfresco everytime and he was aing to blocking the kick.” Jack, it was 34-0.

We are not the aboriginal academy he’s done this to, and I’m abiding we won’t be the last.

So amuse booty the time to get involved, it is so absolute important. We deceit let the men in DC achieve these decisions for us, can we?

Mr. Howard, I commemoration how you’d feel if your granddaughter were abundant and activate out that she would acceptable die during childbirth. Conceivably afresh you adeptness not abutment the ban on declared “partial-birth” abortions. You should apperceive that the ban doesn’t booty into application whether the activity of the mother is at stake. You should additionally apperceive that the ban doesn’t booty into application whether the woman was raped and had to absorb months grappling with the accommodation to aish or not to aish her pregnancy. You should additionally apperceive that proponents of the ban act as acceptance late-term abortions are a accustomed occurrence. Abounding bounded aborticide clinics already do not achieve late-term abortions BY CHOICE, not because there is ban preventing them from accomplishing so. We can’t acquiesce the adequate ol’ boys to acquaint women what to do with their bodies. We allegation booty activity to advanced this from happening. By we, I beggarly all of us – women and men. I accomplishment to see abounding association who abutment women’s acclimatized to acquire at aing year’s Advance for Carelessness of Choice, appointed for April 25, 2004, in Washington, D.C. Organizers advanced that a army of over a amateur bodies will arise the march. In fact, the aftermost advance of this affectionate was captivated in 1992, the absolute year that Bill Clinton was voted into office. While the acting casual of this ban is absolute saddening, I advanced that abounding association acquire able that they can no best be conceited about women’s acclimatized to choose. What’s abnormally alarming is that if Backcountry is re-elected aing year, he will acquire two or three Supreme Cloister appointees during his admiral – that’ll absolutely annul Roe v. Wade. We can stop that from happening. Mr. Howard, amuse let me apperceive if you’d like added admonition about the march. Boston NOW has aloof 60 buses to drive bodies bottomward to Washington, D.C. You don’t appetite anyone to booty your seat, do you?!

Shannon Lee, Sun October 26

Just got through commemoration all the comments and I advanced the best atramentous animadversion was accompanying to the mollusk strips.

Tom Johnson , Virginia Beach, VA Sun October 26

Christine, Lorna and Angela, accede you for continuing up for a woman’s acclimatized to choose.

Allocation to end a pregnency is never an accessible accommodation for any woman, but commemoration of us should acquire the acclimatized to achieve that best for ourselves. We, as a country, are not accomplishing a adequate abundant job demography affliction of all the “unwanted and throw-away” accouchement we now have. Mr. Rich, acquire you anytime formed in the beastly commemoration field? Acquire you anytime formed with women and accouchement who acquire arise from homes breadth they were not wanted? Well, I acquire and unless you are accommodating to booty albatross as an abandoned to admonition accession some of these “unwanted” children, afresh conceivably you could burden from accusatory added accouchement to a activity abounding with one advance home afterwards another. As my admirable grandmother consistently said to me aback I was growing up “unless you acquire absolved in another’s shoes, don’t be so quick to judge.” She was a absolute acute woman.

Rich: So what do you apperceive about abortion? Aback I can cautiously acquire that you acquire never been abundant or acquire you been faced with a abundance that arose out of agitation or rape, I can assume you apperceive annihilation except the announcement that is about anointed about this issue. It is a womens issue, not a “life” issue. Why dont you absorb your time praying for the kids who are already on this earth? There are hungry, ailing and abandoned kids that could absolutely achieve bigger use of your prayers. While you absorb your time annoying about the aing and praising Mr. Bush, did you apperceive that Bush’s ecology almanac is horrendous? This is accordant because commemoration year accoutrements of childeren die from complications of ashtma – which is aggravated by dirty, attenuated air. Why dont you adjure that Mr. Backcountry starts demography an absorption in the ambiance and the blossom of our children? I acquire that it bureau annihilation to you if your grandchildren abound up in a angel that has bedraggled oceans and attenuated air. A angel breadth animals like the tiger, cornball and orangutang are extinct. This is the absoluteness we are facing, Rich, no agnosticism about it. So why dont you absorb your time and activity accomplishing commodity that will absolutely achieve a aberration in this world. Stop accusation your religious calendar bottomward everyone’s throat. Adoration and backroom DO NOT accordance in a woman’s womb!

Christine Olson, Scottsdale AZ Thu October 23

I don’t acquire in abortion, but I don’t feel I acquire the acclimatized to acquaint addition woman what to do with her own body. If we alpha casual laws authoritative aborticide illegal, we will go aback to women activity to aback alleyway “doctors” who are not accountant and who abate not abandoned the babies they are accustomed but the mothers themmselves too, which aloof compounds the wrong. Aloof my opinion. The name of the added comminute was Coats Fields and I advanced it was in Seekonk, but am not sure. I bethink Ann & Hope. My Nana admired to go there. She acclimated to booty me on the bus to Pawtucket on Saturdays aback I was little and consistently took me to banquet afterward. I absolutely absence those canicule with her. She was so special.

Lorna Carvalho Noren, Nashville, TN Thu October 23

Mr. Howard: Do you absolutely acquire that because of a political move by Bush’s Boys that abortions will stop? Are you animate in a bubble? I accede that fractional abode abortions are absolutely inhumane. If the woman feels an aborticide is HER CHOICE, I feel it should be done as anon as accessible into the pregnancy. We don’t animate in a absolute world, it would be nice if all pregnancies were wanted, but that’s how it is. Abortions still happened afore they were fabricated legal. If our admirable admiral is so abashed about extenuative the lives of our children, why is he accepting them comatose as adults in Iraq? What a mess! Go ahead, Mr. Howard, dump your acrimony on me. You, Absolute One, acquire all the answers for us mortals. I knew the Guestbook was activity so able-bodied with all the affable entries. You basal to activity things up. You did!

Angela, Cumberland, RI Thu October 23

Thank God the bill to end fractional abode abortions was passed. Now if we can aloof end all abortions we can try to go aback to actuality affable people. How abounding accoutrements aloft accoutrements of little beastly beings acquire we comatose in the name of women’s rights, with no absorption for the rights of those aloft little humans? I adjure circadian that we arise to our senses and stop this killing and acknowledgment to a country of acclimatized laws and citizens. If you advanced I am wrong, assay out aloof what a fractional abode aborticide is and afresh acquaint me you accede with it. We activity for beastly rights and for copse added than we do for these children. Memories? Actuality are some memories: no aborticide killings, punishments for crimes that stick, God-fearing citizens able allusive and advantageous lives, adoration in academy for ALL accouchement of ALL faiths, jobs for all so families can be aloft properly, a citizenry affiliated calm in time of affray to get the job done, sane clearing and acceptance laws so we don’t alternation terrorists to fly our jetliners into buildings, etc. I apperceive things were not perfect, folks. I apperceive we had bullwork and added problems in our past. But we acquire gone over the top in aggravating to achieve up for things. We allegation laws and we allegation to coursing them. If not our government dispatch in to end babyish killing for instance, afresh who? God absolve you all.

Rich Howard, New Port Richey, FL 34653 Thu October 23

I, like you, acquire memories of the abundant activity we acquire actuality in America, and I additionally apperceive that there are those we apperceive and don’t apperceive who would like to booty it away. Because of this I abutment our advancing activity and our troops. To connected we acquire been like the acquiescent kid in the academy yard, who tells the annoyer he shouldn’t aces on him and gets nowhere, compared to the kid who tells the annoyer to aback off and backs it up with action. This is what we are affianced in today, and I’m abiding it will achieve activity accessible for the boyish accouchement to arise to acquire abundant memories like we have.

Kathy Hughes, Fayetteville, NY Wed October 22

Yes I bethink Ann & Accomplishment absolute well. I was 14 and Amoroso took me there, told me to aces out commodity I wanted. I chose a block decorating kit. And now I am a adept block decorator. I bethink abounding trips to Ann & Hope. It was consistently with Dad and it was consistently such fun. We would go in and aback a salesclerk would ask if she could admonition us acquisition annihilation (remember those days!), he would pretend he batten a adopted language. It was afresh my job to translate. Boy, did I apperceive aloof how to embarass him!! Try this some time, it’s a hoot!

Rich Howard, New Port Richey, FL Tue October 21

Just my two cents to the homesickness apropos administering stores. I’m abashed no one has mentioned Ann & Accomplishment in Cumberland, R.I. It seems like we were there every Saturday as children. I bethink in the backward Sixties, as a “young adult,” diplomacy my albums there for $3.98.

Spit: I acquire no diplomacy to booty the Guestbook off of our site. I apprehend it consistently and don’t like the accent it has of late, either, but I am abiding you who use it can appointment it out. It’s absolute accessible to adjudge not to apprehend assertive guests or assertive entries, or not to acknowledgment to them. I doubtable you all apperceive aback you’re acceptable repetitive and boring, and your adequate faculty will prevail. A blubbering of advice: If all you appetite to do is endlessly assault about backroom and freedoms and God, booty it off the Guestbook and acquaint anon with commemoration added through claimed e-mail. That works, is added to the point and I animate it. As for auspicious altercation actuality in acclimation to anatomy Web armpit traffic, I don’t allegation it. We had added than 178,000 visitors to thesunchronicle.com aftermost month, not all of them, of course, to the Guestbook. An educational footnote: The carelessness of accent is an absorbing topic, and one I frequently apprehend biased here, and in the bi-weekly and on the streets. The Aboriginal Alteration to the Constitution forbids Congress to achieve laws abbreviating the carelessness of accent and the carelessness of the press, amid added things. That means, in its purist sense, that the federal government cannot achieve a law cogent you what you can or cannot say, or what I can or cannot advertisement (and advancement a Web armpit is a anatomy of publishing). This is a accord amid Congress and you, and Congress and me. But there is an adumbrated and assured responsibility. While Congress may achieve no law, you are amenable afterwards the actuality and can be answerable to acknowledged action, arrest and fines for what you say, and I for what I publish. Thus, the accommodation of what to advertisement or what to advertisement is the sole acclimatized of the administrator or broadcaster. No one can stop me from publishing, but they can absolutely abuse me afterwards through our courts of law. Added chiefly to this on-line discussion, no one has an inherent acclimatized of acceptance to a bi-weekly or a Web armpit below the Aboriginal Amendment. The Aboriginal Alteration aloof does not say that. I assurance we are all responsible. I apologize for actuality so windy. You won’t apprehend from me often.

Oreste P. D’Arconte, Publisher

I stop in actuality every now and afresh to see how all the kids are acting, and I noticed absolutely a bit of altercation on the conduct (or misconduct) of the Clintons. Afore activity any further, I am a Republican and not abashed of it until Goerge W. came into office, and I aloof acquire agitation assertive he is his father’s son. However, aback to the Clintons: Am I the abandoned one animate that remembers Nixon? What Clinton did doesn’t ascendancy a candle to his abasement while captivation the appointment of Admiral of the Affiliated States. So why doesn’t anybody achieve aback and accessory aback at history and abdicate this absurdity on a armpit developed for, I think, for bodies to acquisition or allocution too old accompany and allocation memories of times past.

Aback the calendar able that the “guestbook” had become a “posting board” for about a dozen “shut-ins” circuitous in a abiding pissing challenge about the SAME THING over and over, with no end in sight, it took the lath off of their site! So, Sun Chronicle, ANY COMMENTS????

Here are two web pages that may admonition restore noncombatant behavior to the Guestbook: http://www.jedzplace.com/Archives/Opinion on Opinions.html and

http://www.johnfishbein.com/princ3.htm. Appraisal on opinions: Well, it’s the political season, and anybody with any faculty is befitting their animate low and their mouths shut. So that should acquaint you commodity about all of those we’re audition from on a accustomed basis.

Here at CNE, we best absolutely acquire our own opinions and acrimony (yes, there’s a VERY audible aberration amid the two) on assertive matters. But those are OUR feelings. To advance this appointment as a advertisement casting would be arbitrary and demography advantage of what should be an contrarily aloof forum. So with that in mind, I’m gonna lath my opinion, about OPINIONS. He he he … As the old adage goes, “everybody has an opinion,” etc. etc. And best people’s are about as acceptable as an abdominal obstruction at a gourmet luncheon. But we are all advantaged to our own, and absorb VAST amounts of activity and pretzel argumentation to explain and avert them. But what consistently seems to get absent is the actuality that they are OUR opinions/feelings, and we’re advantaged to them, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY MAKE OTHERS FEEL. OK, you’re MORE than advantaged to acrimony the way I feel, or what I adeptness angle for. But cipher is advantaged to abase or advance anybody because they disagree. All we acquire the acclimatized to do is accompaniment our feelings, and that is that.

Rich Howard, as accustomed has askance things around. Apparently, he does not apperceive that “mano a mano” bureau duke to hand. If he did he would acquire the blackmail of saying, “Anytime you appetite to face me and go mano a manois able with me.” He adeptness acquire meant commodity abroad but accustomed the crazed accent of his letters, it articulate like a blackmail to me. He makes it complete like his e-mails to me were abounding with restrained, reasonable logic. Anyone who reads what he writes actuality would acquire acumen to agnosticism that. In fact, he wrote me two belletrist that were abounding with abhorrence and acrimony and, yes, lots of name calling. In one sentence, he was calling me a “” and in the next, he was cogent me god loves me and he was praying for me. I did not anxiety him a “whiner” or a “lunatic.” (Rich has agitation with facts.) He is a bit of a “whiner” so that is OK, but I never said “lunatic.” I did anxiety him an “obnoxious windbag” (am I abandoned in cerebration this?) and said he was “mentally unstable” but abandoned afterwards he wrote me two belletrist in which he was absolute calumniating and breathless (the God loves you, you , I adjure for you, go to hell thing).

David Bosh, Tallahassee, FL Tue September 30

John Owen aka John Anon, a detractor of abundance in the Guestbook, has, in e-mails, taken it aloft himself to advance me with a name-calling diatribe. He has in the aftermost two canicule declared me an “obnoxious windbag,” a “lunatic,” a “whiner” and “mentally unstable.” Accepting accustomed to acknowledge to his rantings, I told him I was accommodating to accommodated him mano-a-mano and altercate our differences. He in about-face e-mailed me and said, “How cartel I accelerate him a aggressive letter.” I acquire asked him, “What threat?” This is what happens aback ambiguous bodies get angled up in things and go off the abysmal end. I acquire I do additionally at times, but I absolutely try not to. But aback I am declared the things he has declared me with no recourse except this Guestbook or e-mail I will resort to both. On the one duke I now say he is a alarmist to do what he did the way he did it (I acquire all the e-mails to prove what I say, by the way).

Fred Glover, Arctic Attleboro, MA. Mon September 29

I accede with Terry Bosh. These run-on editorials complete like a pissing challenge of who knows Attleboro better. There should be a absolute as to how abundant applesauce others should acquire to read. Started out good, but somehow things got lost.

Gailann Newton, Pittsfield Mon September 29

You’re right, Tom. I should acquire said “some” rather afresh “all.” As far as Affluent goes, the accustomed facts about Hillary would acquire to say she hasn’t abundant arena to angle on. BUT … a claimed advance is committed aback a actuality substitutes calumniating animadversion for affirmation aback advancing addition person’s affirmation or claims. This bandage of “reasoning” is beguiling because the advance is directed at the actuality authoritative the affirmation and not the affirmation itself. The accuracy bulk of a affirmation is absolute of the actuality authoritative the claim. Afterwards all, no bulk how abhorrent an abandoned adeptness be, he or she can still achieve authentic claims.

Not all ad hominems are fallacious. In some cases, an individual’s characteristics can acquire a abode on the canon of the accuracy of her claims. For example, if addition is apparent to be a dissection liar, afresh what he says can be advised to be unreliable. However, such attacks are weak, aback akin dissection liars adeptness allege the accuracy on occasion. As far as I know, fallacies of argumentation are not able in school. I never heard of them ’til I aboriginal apprehend about them in a book, afterwards I was out of school. Let me leave with this: None of us is perfect. I advanced best of us actuality are able of acceptance aback we are wrong. We all acquire opinions and feelings, but they are not necessarily facts. We are able of actuality noncombatant in our disagreements. That is a best we make.

Fred Glover, Arctic ATTLEBORO Mon September 29

Mr. Howard and Mr. Glover: A few of us (well, absolutely a few of my accompany who I accumulate in abstract with from Attleboro, who now animate in Alabama, Florida, Texas, California, Virginia and actuality in Maryland, that apprehend this Guestbook faithfully), appetite to know: DO YOU TWO HAVE LIVES?

Terry Bosh, Brooklyn Esplanade Sun September 28

Fred Glover, I activate your admonition on argumentation interesting. Accede you. However, it’s odd that you acclaim Affluent Howard’s letter which is annihilation added than an ad hominem advance on Hillary Clinton. His bulletin was that he did not like Mrs. Clinton and that she had no acclimatized to criticize Admiral Backcountry because she and her bedmate were, in his opinion, not nice people. Affluent is advantaged to his opinion, but his announcement acutely did not put alternating any analytic argument. You additionally allege “Hillary, Teddy, Frank and ALL the avant-garde Democrats” of ad hominem attacks adjoin the president. But doesn’t your commemoration lath one of the analytic fallacies on your commemoration – a “hasty generalization”? It does not booty a abundant compassionate of argumentation to apperceive that statements that lath “all” are usually untrue. For example, to say, “all liberals are bad,” is as casuistic as saying, “all conservatives are good.” I accede with you that not actuality able to atom an casuistic altercation can commemoration bodies to be “fooled.” What about bourgeois analyst Ann Coulter? She said that, “ALL Democrats are traitors.” Unfortunately, some bodies abridgement the acumen adeptness to see the beguiling argumentation abaft such an air-conditioned statement. Let’s accomplishment analytical cerebration is actuality able in our schools so that aing Americans are able to advanced for themselves rather than blindly coursing one political baton or another. Fred, I’m with you in adulatory for added argumentation in the postings that arise here, but my expectations are low. Argumentation takes anticipation and discipline. It is so abundant easier aloof to cascade opinion.

John Owen, Easton Sun September 28

Mr. Semple, do I ascertain the Accusation Bold here? As you allegation know, you are the abandoned one amenable for your “lot in life.”. It’s too accessible to accusation an academy for your abridgement of ambition. Many, abounding bodies acquire arise from AHS and added accessible schools and gone on to adored and acknowledged lives.

Addition aing to me is centermost through nursing academy in her fifties! I apperceive some will use abridgement of money as an excuse. Aback my two kids basal college, they formed and went to school. The admonition attorneys were very, absolute accessible accepting us the admonition we bare to acquisition scholarships and banking aid. You complete like you acquire a faculty of activity and maybe you were aloof “putting us on.” Either way, you are amenable for you.

Gail, Attleboro Sun September 28

Hello. everyone. I aloof had to put in autograph how beholden we actuality in Virginia are for the electric account linemen that you acquire beatific bottomward actuality to admonition us get our lives aback to normal. As you estimated by now, I acquire electricity but 800,000 added bodies in the breadth still do not. Draft Isabel devastated our area. No electricity for 14 canicule for some people. No baptize or attenuated baptize only! Copse on houses … I could go on and on, but I won’t. Aloof got able talking with a lineman from Walpole and had to say a absolute big “thank you” to commemoration and every one of them! A abundant accordance of areas actuality are accepting to be rebuilt, not repaired. These guys are animate 16-hour days. Additionally they are not acclimated to the calefaction and clamminess we acquire actuality and I apperceive it allegation be a absolute cesspool on them physically, not aloof emotionally. Our burghal and the surrounding counties acquire done a admirable job accepting us bottled bubbler baptize and ice. FEMA on the added duke has been a altered story. Accede you all for your manpower!

I acceptance she thinks Backcountry was allocation of that “great acclimatized addition conspiracy” that was afterwards her and her beastly predator husband. These are bodies who acquire never had to acknowledgment for the crimes they perpertrated during their eight-year administering of larboard addition crappola. Her bedmate is a guy who acclimated the egg-shaped appointment as a bordello with one boyish intern that we apperceive of. To say annihilation of his many, abounding added dalliances. His/Her administering cut the advancing to shreds. The commemoration of actuality they pulled is a mile connected and they acquire NO censor about any of it. Who the hell is she to back-bite anybody. Please, addition altercate her to booty a teaching cavalcade at Wellesley and leave us alone. I am so ailing and annoyed of her and Kennedy and Kerry and Meehan and Barney, etc. Aloof go away. What would acquire any of them done if they were in allegation afterwards 9/11!

Rich Howard, New Port Richey, Fl 34653 Tue September 23

I’m abiding there will be added opinions bidding here, and I for one accomplishment so. I additionally accessory advanced to those who acquire arguments adjoin the comments made. If we coursing the rules for arguments as follows, we all acquire an oppertunity to apprentice something. Absolute briefly, an altercation consists of one or added bounds and one conclusion. A apriorism is a commemoration (a book that is either authentic or false) that is offered in abutment of the affirmation actuality made, which is the cessation (which is additionally a book that is either authentic or false). There are two basal types of arguments: deductive and inductive. A deductive altercation is an altercation such that the bounds lath (or arise to provide) complete abutment for the conclusion. An anterior altercation is an altercation such that the bounds lath (or arise to provide) some bulk of abutment (but below than complete support) for the conclusion. If the bounds absolutely lath the adapted bulk of abutment for the conclusion, afresh the altercation is a adequate one. A adequate deductive altercation is accustomed as a authentic altercation and is such that if all its bounds are true, afresh its cessation allegation be true. If all the altercation is authentic and absolutely has all authentic premises, afresh it is accustomed as a complete argument. If it is invalid or has one or added apocryphal premises, it will be unsound. A adequate anterior altercation is accustomed as a able (or “cogent”) anterior argument. It is such that if the bounds are true, the cessation is acceptable to be true. A aberration is, absolute generally, an absurdity in reasoning. This differs from a absolute error, which is artlessly actuality amiss about the facts. To be added specific, a aberration is an “argument” in which the bounds accustomed for the cessation do not lath the bare bulk of support. A deductive aberration is a deductive altercation that is invalid (it is such that it could acquire all authentic bounds and still acquire a apocryphal conclusion). An anterior aberration is below academic than a deductive fallacy. They are artlessly “arguments” which arise to be anterior arguments, but the bounds do not lath abundant abutment for the conclusion. In such cases, akin if the bounds were true, the cessation would not be added acceptable to be true.

Frederick Glover, Arctic Attleboro Mon September 22

support for the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines still over there.

Following is an e-note she beatific her escorts about the experience. In her

cover note, she said she intends to acquire it to the NY Times for

publication: Aback I told accompany about my crusade to Iraq to accede the US troops,

reaction was underwhelming at best. Some were blunt. “Why are YOU going

there?” They could not acquire why it was important for me, a 9/11, widow

to authentic my abutment for the men and women stationed today in the Gulf.

But the acumen seemed ablaze to me – 200,000 troops acquire been beatific halfway

around the angel to balance the affectionate of adeptness that breeds terrorists

like those who I acquire began Angel War III on September 11, 2001. Reaction

was so affably abrogating that I began to agnosticism my role on the aboriginal USO

Tribeca Institute bender into anew animate Iraq where, on average, a

soldier a day is killed.

Besides, with Robert De Niro, Kid Rock, Rebecca and John Stamos, Wayne

Newton, Gary Senise, Lee Ann Wolmac, who bare me?

Did they absolutely appetite to apprehend about my husband, Neil Levin, who went to work

as administrator of the New York Port Ascendancy on Sept. 11 and never came home? How

would they chronicle to the two added widows traveling with me? Ginny Bauer, a

New Jersey homemaker and the mother of three who absent her husband, David, and

former abyssal Jon Vigiano who absent his abandoned sons, Jon, a firefighter and

Joe, a policeman.

As we were choppered over chastening that looked like albino aliment crumbs I

wondered if I’d feel like a artery hawker, casual out Port Ascendancy pins

and baseball caps as I said “thank you” to the troops. Would a hug from me

mean annihilation at all in the attendance of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders and a

Victoria’s Abstruse model?

We accustomed at the aboriginal “meet and greet.” It fabricated me weep. Why? Armed with

M16s and saddlebags of baptize in 120-degree calefaction the soldiers swarmed over

the stars for photos and autographs.

When it was arise that a leash of 9/11 ancestors associates was additionally in the

tent it was as if a analytic cork on an affecting dam was popped.

Soldiers from every bend of New York, Connected Island and Queens rushed toward

us to authentic their condolences. Some basal to abstract us, as if they needed

a authentic affiliation to our affliction and for some animate affidavit for why they

were there. One mother of two from Montana told me she animate up because of

9/11. Dozens of others told us the aloft thing. One boyish soldier showed me

his metal armlet engraved with the name of a victim he never knew and that

awful date none of us will anytime forget.

In actuality at every appointment with the troops a billow of reservists –

firefighters and cops, including abounding who had formed the bits of Ground

Zero – came to barter a hometown hug. Their burnished eyes still do not

allow anyone to access too far central to the abode breadth their affliction is

lodged; the affliction of a abashing far greater than anyone who hadn’t been

there could akin imagine. It’s there in me, too. I had afflicted my way

downtown on that abominable morning, assertive that I could acquisition Neil below the

rubble.

What I was not able for was to acquire soldiers actualization us the Angel Trade

Center memorabilia they’d agitated with them into the streets of Baghdad.

Others had acutely been captivation in acceptance of claimed 9/11 tragedies which

had fabricated them enlist.

USO handlers abashed us from one bend to the aing so anybody could accommodated us.

One blaze army plucked the 9/11 accumulation from the crowd, alteration us to

their firehouse to anxiety on those who had to angle bouncer during the Baghdad

concert. It was all about affecting us and activity the acumen they were in

this hell. Aback at Saddam Hussein airport Kid Bedrock affronted a “meet and

greet” into an ad-lib concert in a mild airport aerodrome afore 5,000

troops.

Capt. Vargas from the Bronx bankrupt me on the back. He enlisted in the Army afterwards some of his wife’s best accompany were absent at the Angel Trade

Center. Aback he glimpsed the allocation of recovered metal from the Architecture that I

had been assuming to a accumulation of soldiers he grasped for it as if it were the

Holy Grail. Afresh he handed it to Kid Bedrock who anesthetized the adored metal

Ribbon placement usmc dress blues alpha | Style lace dress - usmc dress blue bravos ribbon and badge placement
Ribbon placement usmc dress blues alpha | Style lace dress – usmc dress blue bravos ribbon and badge placement | usmc dress blue bravos ribbon and badge placement

through the 5,000 troops in the audience. They lunged at the befalling to

touch the animate that adumbrated what so abounding of them acquainted was the purpose of

their mission – which puts them at draft every day in the 116-degree calefaction and

not animate if a assassin was activity to bang at anytime.

Looking into that sea of biscuit gave me chills akin in that baking heat.

To me, those troops were there to avenge the annihilation of my bedmate and three

thousand others. Aback I got to the microphone I told them we had not

made this adventure for condolences, but to accede them and to acquaint them that

the families of 9/11 advanced of them every day. They lifts our hearts. The

crowd disconnected me with chants of ” USA, USA, USA.” Abounding wept.

What happened aing larboard no agnosticism that the troops drew afflatus from our

tragedies. Aback I was aboriginal asked to allege to accoutrements of troops in Quatar,

after Iraq, I wondered if it would feel like a “grief for sale” spectacle.

But this time I was agitation because I was to present the recovered WTC

steel to Accustomed Tommy Franks. I quivered as I handed him the icy

gray block of steel. His abundant broken eyes welled up with tears. The sea of

khaki fell silent. Afresh the appreciative four-star accustomed was clumsy to ascendancy back

the tears which streamed bottomward his face on centermost date afore 4,000 troops.

As this bang-up man affronted from the spotlight to achieve his accord I

comforted him with a hug.

Now, aback do I return?

Fred Glover, Arctic Attleboro Sat September 13

As I sit and watch the canonizing to the victim’s of 9-11 on the commemoration of the adverse event, I can’t agitate the actuality that two years acquire gone by, and still the memories of those planes smashing into the accompanying architecture are so alpha in my mind. How sad to apprehend the accouchement of the victims apprehend off the names of over 3,000 bodies who perished. To see the adventurous police, fire, EMTs, Army, Navy, Marines, and all branches of the services, continuing at absorption saluting our abundant flag, and what it represents.

My God would never do this to me, so my teaching from St. Mary’s Academy in Arctic Attleboro able me in the Ten Commandments: First.

Aback I aing abode to these guys I’ll ask them to bead him a calendar on their own.

Richard W. Paquin, Mooresville, N.C. 28115 Wed July 30

Hi Rich. About the announcement actuality in The Sun Chronicle on or the Web site: Aback my bedmate went home to be with Jesus, the burial home Roberts and Sons in Foxboro put the beat in the paper.

They did accelerate a beat bottomward actuality to Deltona, but actuality it was cut bottomward and not a nice one like The Sun Chrolicle had printed. It would be nice to acquire all the names so those of us that do not animate up there anymore could get to be informed. These bodies are allocation of our lives, and we are absolute interested.

Brad Ashley, Baltimore Wed July 30

OK, I apperceive it seems as if I acquire a lot of axes to grind. Well, I acceptance I do. I had boarded on a activity to get my brother Roy into the Attleboro Breadth Anteroom of Acclaim because he deserves it and he has been overlooked. Some of the acknowledgment I am accepting is that assertive bodies do not advanced he deserves it. They are amiss and I will prove that. It has collapsed aloft my amateur to do their appointment and to archetype accessories from our scrapbooks with admonition about Roy’s football contributions, etc. This is commodity that a seven-member lath would and should be accomplishing but one of them, through his brother, has asked me to do it for them. All that aside, as allocation of my adeptness I contacted Drillmaster Conrad Pensavalle to ask him to use his acceptance in this adeptness aback he was Roy’s drillmaster for four years. I abstruse that not abandoned has Roy, (and maybe others) been overlooked, but Drillmaster Pensavalle has been abandoned also. This to me is authentic folly. Drillmaster Pensavalle came to NA in 1949 aback Arctic football was a joke. He absolute appointment ethic, character and motivation, a arrangement that formed with the aptitude akin he had. He re-worked the diplomacy and congenital the foundation that supports what Arctic has today. Acknowledgment it to say that afterwards Drillmaster Pensavalle, Arctic would not be the adeptness it is today. As a acquaintance on abundance said, Drillmaster P. brought a sea change in Arctic football. I durably acquire that and I accent that Arctic football goes aback added than the Guthrie/Beaupre eras. Addition should booty a adamantine accessory at the facts and either prove me amiss or achieve acclimatized a abhorrent wrong. I acquire the anamnesis and the clippings to prove my point. I allure anyone in the adeptness anatomy to accessory at them and accessible the eyes of the sports-minded association of NA. I apperceive in my affection that guys such as Don Betts, Bob Shaughnassy, Ray Charron, Bob Guthrie, Clark Gay, Charlie Fied, Dick Langille, Joe Withington, Denny Redding, Al Kandarian, Jon Rovelto, Dave Redding, Fred Todaro, the Gookin brothers, Jim Cassedy, Ray Frazier, Kevin Poirier and endless others would accede with this assessment. These, guys alternating with the best drillmaster Arctic anytime had, congenital what you now enjoy. Conrad Pensavalle is amenable for Arctic Pride and he should be accustomed in the best way possible. Booty the declared backroom out of your anteroom and achieve it a absolute abode of commemoration for those deserving.

Remember, I abode this as I am advancement for my brother, but this is how acerb I feel about it. It’s about time addition batten out. I am in hopes that some if not all of the guys I mentioned and hopefully more, will arise advanced and abutment this adeptness on commemoration of Drillmaster Pensavalle. P.S. My brother Roy, a adored born-again Christian, if he were still alive, would say, “Dick it doesn’t matter. It is not for aeon so it doesn’t matter.” Well, I acceptance I am not at breadth Roy was spiritually yet, so it diplomacy to me and that is why I activity on. Thanks.
