You had plenty to say regarding recent editorials.

Charles Turnipseed emailed:

"Thank you for your editorial urging a return to civil discourse.  While I often engage in memory modification to create a past far more pastoral than the reality, the goal remains attainable and would benefit us all in discussing matters with an attitude of cooperation and compromise rather than the fusillades that have become far too common."

Ted Wallhofer  from Grennville  emailed:

"After watching the little boys in the  Senate argue over who gets to play with what, it's time to take them out behind the woodshed.  What a farce they make of the so called working session.  The only thing they jumped on in a hurry was to give themselves an outlandish pay raise...  Our memories will be called into play come election time. "

William Murray emailed:

"I am a Black Hawk pilot and have served twice in Iraq. What you said after the Soldiers Creed means a lot.  You said to support the Solider.  No matter what your opinion is of the war we must stand behind the soldier and our families.  My wife has one of the hardest jobs out there.  When I am deployed she has to comfort three boys...We still have along road ahead and we need to remind the American people to support the soldier."  

And Arthur Wallace from Prattville sent a letter with a poem from an unknown author titled "A Soldier."

It reads: "I was that which others did not want to be.  I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do.  I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness...should I fail.  I have seen the face of terror; I have felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love.  I have cried, pained and hoped, but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.  At least, someday I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was ...A Soldier."

Please keep your feedback coming.
