Sound Off

President Puffer

Now it turns out that pot causes brain damage. Since both President Obama and Eric Holder have admitted to one and all that they smoked pot, I guess that explains why they behave the way they do!

Biden was right

To the Sound Off writer who said VP Biden made a gaffe: What gaffe? He was right on target. You're mad because there wasn't a Republican at the podium. Oh, well.

Suspicious

I am starting to get suspicious about this missing plane that cannot be located in over five weeks. In today's world of rapid communication and modern technology, there is no way I am convinced they cannot locate this missing jet and all its passengers.

Zohydro vs. pot

The People's Republic of Massachusetts has once again jumped into the fray. They want to ban the pain-killing drug Zohydro so that those who are suffering get only the lesser relief that has been available up until now. However, they're on it big-time when it's time to legalize pot, even though it's been proven that pot causes abnormalities in the brain with minimum use.

Not the weapon

To "Stick to knives": I am sorry to be so blunt, but your statement in Wednesday's Sound Off is the most idiotic statement I've ever read in this column. Just because the student didn't kill anyone in his knife rampage, doesn't mean he couldn't have killed them; they were lucky. It doesn't make a difference which weapon you use — a knife, a gun, a hammer, etc. These weapons don't kill people, people kill people. How hard is that for you to figure out?

Snowden a hero

Kudos to the Pulitzer Prize Board for recognizing the importance of reporting Edward Snowden's revelations of the NSA's covert monitoring of all of our phone calls and email messages. I'm taking a collection for a statue of Snowden to be erected on the White House lawn. Any donors?
