I have mentioned this point before, but it needs to be repeated so that you all remember it. An attempt on the life of the presidential candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt failed, but Mayor Cermak of Chicago was killed. His assassin was captured by the crowd, and he was found guilty and put to death in 30 days after Cermak’s death.
Why is Hasan still alive today, three years after his crime? In addition to that, he has drawn $300,000 in Army pay while the victims, our citizens and our soldiers, cannot get proper care and lost compensation. What do you think?
I just read that the Japanese government is in debt by one quadrillion yen. That debt is more than twice the size of the Japanese economy, according to an article by John Schwartz in the Star Telegram. A quadrillion is a billion millions.
That sort of made me think of our national debt and the debate about it. I think it is much too high. What do you think?
Cowboys and the press
I heard that if you keep telling a boy that he is a bad boy, he will eventually become a bad boy. Perhaps if the Dallas Cowboys players could read something positive about the team they could become a winning team.
As it is now, all they can read is some silly sports writer telling them how bad they are. I stopped reading these sports writers’ opinions because they are constantly criticizing Jerry Jones and his team. We should be encouraging the team to be a winner. What do you think?
I am sure happy that in September I will be 93 years old, but in some ways it does have its drawbacks. I just read that Eydie Gorme, the wife of singer Steve Lawrence for 55 years, died at the age of 84.
