All mixed up

Although I don’t agree with Paula Deen for using a slur, I am sure in our lifetime we have all been guilty of the same abusive talk, especially in this great ethnic melting pot of the USA. The one thing I don’t understand is how it can make a person such a criminal as to lose everything, while some rappers can make millions spewing vile trash that includes the same word. Talk about getting our priorities mixed up.

Shame, shame

To the woman who left her cocker spaniel puppy locked in a black Mercedes on a hot Saturday morning at the Market Basket on Lowell Avenue in Haverhill and to the store employee who, when asked to page the license number, responded, “I don’t want to get involved, it’s not my dog anyway” — Shame on you both!

Rat bait

Whitey Bulger’s lawyer is trying to flip the focus of his trial. He’s avoiding testimony about the 19 heinous, cold-blooded murders. Instead, he’s trying to focus the testimony on proof that Whitey is not a “rat.” Oh, my, my, my, tsk, tsk. Will the jury be gullible enough to fall for that old used-car “bait and switch” sales ploy?
