Worth reading from the St. Joseph News-Press
Neither of these pieces is all that recent, but it has just taken me some time to post them here.
A few weeks ago, there was a great column in the News-Press by Alonzo Weston. Here's a taste: "To truly restore America’s honor, we must help the least of us. That’s not socialism, that’s compassion. We need to make education, social services, mental health and unemployment our priorities, instead of worrying about whether Obama is a Christian." The comments on the web site and the nasty notes in the paper have not stopped since!
