Speakout: July 3, 2013

Servers

Call me old fashioned, but when my kids served as altar boys, they sat on the altar and didn’t talk with one another the whole Mass. How times have changed.

Firefighters

Five senior high rises, several student housing towers, nine-floor hospital, three nursing homes. Call in volunteer firefighters in the middle of the night? I don’t think so.

Tattoos

If you want to cover your body with tattoos, that’s your business, but by all means cover up when you’re not at the beach or other appropriate place. School graduations with impressionable children is no place to wear tube-tops and short shorts, even with no tattoos.

Disease

They say obesity is now a disease. Now fat people will get more entitlements and demand privileges beyond what we can afford.

Marijuana

Our corporate-controlled government shuts down medical marijuana dispensaries because they would treat many conditions more effectively and with little to no side effects than the “ask your doctor” nonsense.

Class

If a person goes to an exercise class and feels people are not being nice or feels that gossip is going on, there should be a place to report that. Being mean to new people is rude and not good for business.
