Speak out

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Generous family

After church services recently my husband and I, along with another couple, went to Bob Evans for lunch. When we were ready to leave, our waitress, much to our surprise, said our lunch had been paid for by a young family at an adjoining table. I had bumped this young man trying to get my husband's wheelchair up to the table. The message they left was "Merry Christmas." This reassures our belief that there are wonderful people out there who truly care for others. This act of generosity and kindness makes us want to go and do something good for someone else. We wish to extend a special thank you to this young family and wish them a Merry Christmas and God's blessings.

Swan, trolley

We're going to miss Kathy Swan in the city of Cape Girardeau. And I think the trolley is a wonderful idea.

Illegal immigrants

I was watching the news where they are trying to provide drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. For the life of me, I still don't know why they are letting illegal immigrants drive in the first place. If we can identify them, why not send them home or make them apply to be legal? It doesn't make any sense to me. Why give a license to someone who is illegal?

No more Elmo

To Elmo of Sesame Street: Sorry buddy, you won't find your place under the Christmas tree this year.

Generous family: The spirit of Christmas lives.

Illegal immigrants: First things first, they only get a drivers license when they have insurance. That's for our protection. Next you know where they live so ICE can go pick them up.

No more Elmo: Elmo didn't do anything wrong, it was his handler.

In just 12 days, according to the Mayans, the world will end. This gives me just under two weeks to save the world. If you are still here on December 22nd, you will know I was successful.

In appreciation for saving the world, I will accept money, exotic cars and property as a form of payment.

Now, I have a job to do. Semo471 out.
