A letter to those who litter
I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to the slobs, idiots and inconsiderate people who continually decorate the beautiful Texas landscape with their trash. I guess it’s really a form of art with beer bottles and cans, boxes, plastic drink containers, food packaging and just about anything else you can think of. It just doesn’t appeal to me. Thank you.
I also want to thank these lazy slobs for inconveniencing me, and many others who have the same problem, by making us have to clean up after you before we can make our places nice to look at. Thank you.
I also want to thank you for expressing your manners and education by causing an eyesore and danger with the glass bottles breaking. I love having flat tires! Thank you.
I would like to thank your mothers and fathers for raising such clean, upstanding and caring individuals like you. I’m sure they are proud of you (unless of course they taught you to do this like they do). Thank you.
It’s not just young adults but the older ones too that are guilty of this. I only wish that some day you are in my shoes, having to clean up after someone.
Beverly Hutton, Weatherford
IRS investigation of Tea Party
The news story about the IRS investigating Tea Party organizations has been totally misrepresented by all the news services I have seen, with the exception of one CNN reporter.
The reason the IRS is investigating Tea Party organizations has nothing to do with their political beliefs. The investigations were initiated by law when these organizations applied to the IRS for tax-exempts statu; under a law that gives that status to educational, religious, charitable and other social welfare organizations only.
