Network TV likes sex! Just not within marriage.
Another school year begins, and despite consistently rising gas prices and the latest war (Russia-Georgia), which in all likelihood is to secure future access to known oil supplies, there are still lots of folks who park and burn Texas Tea waiting to pick up their kids.
Your editorial cartoon comparing the U.S.S.R.'s 1968 invasion of Czechoslavakia and America's global war on terror in the Aug. 16 paper was not even fit to use as fish wrap.
I recently participated in a conference call/town hall forum with our local congressional representative "Buck" McKeon. I was one of many callers who got to listen in and vote on the issue of what to do about our oil crisis.
