I love to write for I feel I have an opinion on a lot of subjects but few ever agree with me so why not send them to the editorial page of the local newspaper. I learned many years ago that the newspapers are starving for things to put on those empty pages and they appear empty again day after day without a break. This also relieves a lot of frustrations without taking them out on my dear wife. Not all my entry’s are published but over the years, many have been.  I guess it is a bit of an ego trip as well to see your name in print alongside notables that we enjoy reading every day.

The Bradenton Herald has been good enough to print my last two rants which follow.  “Jimmy Fallon” is self explanatory if you saw the show and if you didn’t, you didn’t miss much.

“Leonard Pitts” is a black man that carries a big chip on his shoulder and has no use for those who don’t agree with his left wing politics.


“First Lady’s appearance on Fallon Show a disgrace”

David Letterman has nothing to worry about after watching Jimmy Fallon failing last night in a foolish humorless skit including this country’s 1st. Lady, Michelle Obama. Why she, the wife of the President of this great country would degrade herself and her position to being a part of such a second rate TV show is beyond me. It shows a lack of class and respect for her high position.

“Obama criticism not racist but on failures”

I find it hard to like or understand Leonard Pitts of the Miami Herald. His comments in the Bradenton newspaper of Sunday Jan 26th were offensive and racial.  He has likened the entire white conservative population in the country to racial bigots. I had a number of facts that would argue Pitts dumb rhetoric but reading his article a third time causes me to take his remarks as those of an angry immature man that needs to get a life.

Sir, you make little sense at all in your writing. You need to sit quietly and relax and stop being so angry. Use your writing skills to help those that you are presently inflaming with your hate. Hopefully a different approach will help improve the situation in this land. You have an enviable position as a newspaper commentator that can be channeled to do good and positive works.

The White population helped put Mr. Obama in the White House, and then did it a second time. They are not criticizing him on the basis of his color, but solely on his inability to govern.
