“Thanks for the comments about the food bank. When I read the rant that described how well people dressed when they went there, I thought that this person doesn’t know what he or she is talking about. Recipients do not go directly to the food bank.
They are screened and the various agencies that screen them pick up the food. Seek the truth and it will make you free. Also, you might want to try volunteering at the food bank. You may be humbled and you will certainly get a better perception of what it’s all about.
“Am I the only mother who thinks there are too many middle school kids that are allowed to have boyfriends and girlfriends? Making out and having sex!

“To the ranter who said Lincoln had less experience. Lincoln began his political career in 1832, at age 23. He was elected captain of an Illinois militia company, he ran a store, he served four successive terms in the Illinois House of Representatives and became a leader of the Illinois Whig party all before being elected to President in 1860 as a Republican.

McCain may have chosen the backup he deserves, but it short changes us by a factor of one in having the two viable ticket options on Nov. 4 that we deserve.
“Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but Obama has been a real gentleman in his remarks about Sarah Palin. I respect him for his substance as opposed to one-liners. The presidency is not a joking matter, present office holder excluded.
“The Falcons looked like a real football team on Sunday. The emphasis being on the word ‘team.’
