KELLY: What do you think?


Why do successful and supposedly intelligent men cave in to this silliness? What do you think?

Supreme Court

The court just denied the state of Arizona, and I suppose by extension all states, the right to require a person to provide proof they are a citizen in order to vote. Why would any honest government – local, state or federal – want non-citizens to have the privilege to vote? Maybe the decision was based on a technicality, but in my opinion the court just gave non-citizens the opportunity to be illegal voters. What do you think?

Dear Abbey

Dear Abbey, and other columns of that type in which people write in seeking advice concerning a problem in their daily lives are very interesting. I read these types of articles for only one reason: They give me confirmation that I am really a sane individual. What do you think?


It’s very good to see that these honor students have formed their own opinions and want to express them. However there is a time and place for everything and the valedictorian address is not the place for that form of expression. I believe the school authorities were correct in their decision to not permit a variation from the approved script. Some traditions need to be followed. What do you think?

I hope one or more of the items above caused you to think about the content in them. Let me know what you think.
