It's time to set aside petty bickering about the economy, war and boyhood terrorist friends and direct our focus to an issue that threatens the fabric of this nation. The issue to which I'm referring is: Why does the Dispatch put the Sunday crossword in the middle of the page and not up in the corner like the weekday editions? This makes it impossible to fold the paper into a comfortable crossword-working position. Call your representative and/or the Dispatch and voice your opinion on this crucial issue. Thank you. I'm a crossword geek and I approve this message.
How do others feel?
I think the $2.1 million should go back to the people who have to pay the taxes that are going up. The best would be getting those children back on the buses, thinking of the safety for the children. How do the rest of the readers feel? Forget any more sports. It's too expensive for the parents to pay. The three "Rs" are what they're in school for and you won't have to pay the "overtime" for the teachers that means saving money.
Why they crossed the road
I just can't handle it. Of all the silly things the Brainerd City Council has done over the years and many jokes have been made of it, deservedly so, I just can't lower myself to do a chicken joke about the Brainerd City Council. I just can't go that low. Sorry.
Up in smoke
Forgive me if I'm wrong but I've just driven under this new bridge and I can't believe that the people who approved Paul Bunyan, or whoever he is, would allow a pipe in his mouth. Now isn't the object of walking to better your health? This is, like, so stupid. Why in God's green Earth would you promote the Paul Bunyan Trail for health, environment and safety with smoking causing fires, and put a symbol of somebody with a pipe in their mouth? This town has gone crazy.
Editor's note: The Vox Pop Department of Health wagers Paul will never get to the other end of the bridge because he's smoking.
