The Catfish Alley article was interesting. Those tapes should have a lot of history about Columbus during the last century.
I have enjoyed the write-ups on Catfish Alley. I remember the very first Bob's was in Catfish Alley.
In Mr. Bill Parker’s letter, The teaching of science, Feb. 3, he blames “anti-science” movements for crippling teacher’s effort to teach science, especially evolution. I have great respect and admiration for instruments of education like Mr. Parker, who are concerned about the welfare of our children.
I was disturbed to see a full-page ad in Sunday’s Dispatch with the headline “The Obama Abortion Agenda.” The ad blamed the Democratic leadership for targeting “unborn children and their mothers” and made several generalized statements as to what would happen if the “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) were passed by Congress. It referred readers to a Web site to “learn more.” Much in this ad is misleading, half-truth or patently false.

I watched the documentary on Ted Haggard last night on HBO. 45 minutes of me crying over this man who was caught having a homosexual relationship and who used drugs. He is a man who made a whole lot of money, who did admit to the men he was accountable to his “sin.” He was ousted from leadership, and with that I have no problem. The kicker for me was he was removed from his home, his, not one the church owned, and ran out of Colorado altogether.
Re: your recent headline “Child porn cases not taken lightly.” Really! What about cases of actual sexual abuse on a child? Last year Gill Dishongh, a ‘prominent’ white businessman and churchgoer of the community received two years for the despicable crime. Admittedly guilty.
