Two ironies

No. 1. We are told not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatic Muslims. But on the other hand we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. How is that supposed to work?

No. 2. The food stamp program, administered by the Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of food stamps ever to 47.5 million people. At the same time the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, tells us “please don’t feed the animals.” Their stated policy is because “the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
