The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Dogs have killed people also. Does that mean they should be illegal as pets? The problem is the person keeping the pet and not properly educating themselves on the pets care needs. But, of course, there are always those who jump to the most simple fix which may not always be the best fix.

You don't like columns written by Leonard Pitts? Guess what? Ignore his column, just as I skip the writings by hypocrites like Star Parker and Cal Thomas. From my point of view Leonard Pitts is right on target with his insightful analyses of daily events, telling it as it is.

I’m very pleased with the judge’s decision in favor of Deep South Sanitation. It would be in poor character for the county to appeal. We should start replacing those commissioners responsible next election.

Doctors seem to care and try hard when they first get in practice but after they have their patients enough to support their money-loving wives, all that goes. Then it is to just push us through like a herd of cattle. CHA-CHING!

I am not a senior citizen but I know several who are that love animals. It helps to have one for your blood pressure, companionship, and a lot of things. Vet care is important for animals, as it is for humans to have physician care. Vets over charge because they know we love our pets like a baby. Animals give so much love but no one should have one if they can’t afford to keep it safe and healthy.

This is disgusting. Talk of raising Tricare premiums, doing away with commissaries ... these are my entitlements for serving my country for 20 years. I hear nothing about those that check out ahead of me with a full cart using an EBT card, or getting free government housing with my tax dollars. They aren’t entitlements if you haven’t earned them so take those perks for those that choose not to work away.

It was good to see the Peanuts gang gathered in the yard and Snoopy on the roof at the home on Jerry Jones. Many thanks to that family for keeping their tradition going that we all have come to look for and enjoy so much each year at Christmas time. God Bless!

If I have chosen to not have children, then one could reasonably argue that I shouldn’t be required to pay for another child’s education. However, the point that is being made is simple — the right to a free and public education is a good thing, regardless of whether your child utilizes it or not.
