Hot feet

To the woman who stole my Teva sandles at Latitude in Methuen Saturday afternoon: I had to walk on the hot tar with nothing on my feet. I am 70 years old. I hope you are proud of yourself. What a low thing to do.

1-point rule

In a few months the basketball season will start and just maybe there will be new rules. Here is one I hope will change and make it more interesting. It doesn’t take too much to slam dunk a ball when a man is around 7-feet tall. Therefore, a slam dunk should be one point, a regular shot two points and one way out there three points. It will slow down all the traffic around the basket and give the players who can shoot a chance. I would like to hear some take on this.

Royal pain

I hope Kate and William’s baby comes soon. Poor Queen Elizabeth is anxious to get away to Scotland!

Counting the dead

While the nation was fixated on the trial of George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, many were left wondering when the media would tell their similarly tragic stories of lives lost to gun violence. During the trial, over 50 people’s lives came to an end in shootings in Chicago alone -- many of them black and many of them teenagers, just like Trayvon.

Clinton vs. Bush

The conservative Sound Off commenter who ended with the statement that America deserves much better than another Clinton has not been following what is going on in this country. Sir, you do realize that Clinton left us with a lot more money in the till than Junior Bush, who spent it all and left us with a deficit.
