In the company of my wife, and Gigi, Julie, Alice and Anne, I enjoyed supper and the Saginaw Bay Orchestra last night. Despite all the talk about crime, we all went into downtown Saginaw last night and escaped with our lives.

I would like to add a thought to this, also. I don't believe that the media are the only blame-worthy interests engaged in blowing this incident up into an international flap. I think there are lots of Christian groups out there, and individuals as well, to whom this clash between Islam and Christianity is considered a good thing, that a showdown must come, and that perhaps the showdown is the violence that ends the world. That out of this, Christ will come again.On the other side are many Moslems who want to encourage the conflict.I have concluded that neither the Christian nor the Islamic religions (as a force on earth) is, or deserves to be called, "a religion of peace."

Dashmann sent this letter that was printed in the newspaper. Dashmann says it's a better statement on "right-to-work" laws than any of us could have written.
False promises in right-to-work laws: "This state of ours is on its knees with the national economy and, compounding it, the manufacturing collapse that has devastated the families of
"Don’t believe it. The only ones who benefit from right-to-work laws are corporations and their executives, with huge profit increases for them. You never will hear of the top executives of our state’s companies taking 40% salary cuts, joining with rank-and-file employees for fiscal belt-tightening, sharing the burden equitably as we go forward.
"The real statistics are proof: 21% lack health insurance in right-to-work states, workplace deaths are 51% higher, infant mortality is 16% higher.
"Research the states that now regret voting for this law — it only brought the standards of living down for the majority."

I did not like the tie Obama was wearing yesterday when he made his speech. The red color made him appear to be a know-it-all. When he seems to know it all, he cannot possibly connect well with the average American viewer. Americans don't like to think their presidents are too well informed. You'll notice, for example, that on BIG BROTHER, the men do not wear ties, and the actors have a much higher popularity rating as a result. But if they did wear ties, you can be sure they would not be red.
