Two comments, Paul. I like JS's suggestion about taking a poll of the pilots who land at the airport and see what they would like to name it. Another suggestion is the Sandhills Airport, with the idea being it encompasses all of the Sandhills, not just Whispering Pines or Southern Pines.
Thank you for a wonderful piece on Captain Thompson. I truly appreciate his service and what he accomplished not only for our country, but for the people of Afghanistan. May God bless him and his family. They will be in my prayers.
I'm all for serious and sustained questioning of terrorists. But waterboarding is just plain ridiculous. How can you trust the results? If someone was pouring water down my throat, I'd say almost anything to make the pain stop. And therein lies the problem-you can't trust human nature, especially if it belongs to a terrorist.
Barry, thanks for the website information about euthanasia. It is very helpful in understanding local attitudes towards animals, not only in life, but in death as well. It seems that in many counties cheaper is the way to go, regardless of how animals suffer in their last moments of life. What just amazes me is that don't people realize animals have feelings, feel pain, and deserve the best that we can give them? How we treat our furry friends is a statement about us, and how far we have come as human beings.
Sylvia, I know I'm responding late, but I just saw your editorial. It is so true. I'm from out of state as well and I'm furious over the cruelty of animals that is so prevalent here. Look at all the poor dogs that stay outside at night all winter. These owners should be held accountable. Thank you for your courage in writing in.
Here's another take on why I don't go to the gym anymore. How about people who don't clean the machines after they use them? I've tried to use machines and had them dripping with sweat! Disgusting! Of course I can go to a staff person and ask for a clean-up, but what's wrong with people and common courtesy? Tom Embrey wrote about real-life experiences and that's mine, and unfortunately it's what turned me off at the gym.
