VOX POP - Nov. 10
Options are endless
Older folks aren’t marketable
Front page of the Brainerd paper Tuesday says they’re going to cut Medicare benefits and food stamps and all those kinds of things. I understand a point of the food stamps if anybody is younger and able to work should get out off their duffs and work. However, us older folks are not hirable, marketable people and it isn’t easy for us to find jobs and some of us certainly can’t work anymore.
Respect the flag
The flags on a building on Washington Street must be removed. They are all dirty, weather-beaten and need to be replaced now. Our United States flag needs our respect. Let’s show it, please.
What an absolutely marvelous picture in the Neighbors section, the turkey and the fawn. It’s just great. I think you should have a contest to have people see what you think they’re saying. I suppose that turkey is saying, “Stick with me, kid.” And the fawn is saying, “I’ll trust you. I’ll go with you wherever you want to go.” It’s great.
