Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Wealth gap

A surprising thanks to uber conservative Phil Gramm for pointing out the growing wealth gap in the U.S.

School rankings

Kudos to both the Cape Girardeau Public Schools and Notre Dame Regional High School for receiving above average grades from the authoritative and comprehensive review given by the prestigious and online school ranking service, niche.com.

Smoking problem

Cape Girardeau still has smoking in public places. And everybody wants us to come there for health care? Huh.

Voters overruled

Did you read the headlines in the paper today: "State ban on gay marriage overturned"? What good does it do for the people in the state to vote for something, if a judge, one judge, can overturn the constitutional ban on gay marriage? What's the use of voting? I cannot see it. I'm getting more disgusted every day.

Where's Obama

So, Mr. Obama, you hear me. Where have you been for six years? Why haven't you been listening to what the people said for that long, instead of crying in your beer now?

Thanks, government?

The word carries an undeserved negative connotation. We need to be more respectful of and thankful for the work of government bureaucrats.


This time of year I hear a lot of complaining that Thanksgiving is forgotten. We jump from Halloween into Christmas. If you want Thanksgiving to be remembered, spend the day with people you care about, not shopping. We have 12 months in the year to shop. Take a break on special days.


The constitution means what the Supreme Court says it means, not what David Limbaugh opines.

Tracks repair

Speak Out, the train people must have put a Band-aid on the tracks and the Band-aid came off, because the tracks are just as bad as they were. I don't know why it can't be fixed permanently.
