Regarding thefts on the East End: I live on an obscure back street in South Hills, and have the same problem. This town is full of thieves stalking up and down the streets and roads. If you want to keep it, you had better lock it up somehow.

There is an instrumental song released by Duane Eddy in 1959 and the song should be the theme song for the state and each of the counties. The title is, appropriately, “Forty Miles of Bad Road.”

It is very long overdue that term limits be imposed upon federal judges. Their individual power is overwhelming and they can only be removed through impeachment. Lifetime appointments are clearly the worst feature of American government. (Although it is absurd to think today’s Congress would tackle such an issue when they do nothing with even simple matters.)

We need to follow the money both in West Virginia and Washington. It’s not making it back home but going somewhere. Schools left downtrodden roads with not even mediocre repairs. Those in charge are delinquent in their duties and doing nothing.

There’s more to the Paris yellow vest protest than Notre Dame. French government’s actions has set the stage leading to attacks on Christian churches. People are more worried about rebuilding the church than they are fixing the problem that destroyed it.

Questions about the Kanawha County board of ed cuts. Interventionists at Mary C Snow are federally funded, how can they be cut? Why cut 6th grade positions in middle schools instead of 7th or 8th? The middle school concept should be making the adjustment from elementary to middle school easier to manage, but cuts to 6th grade make it more like a junior high than a middle school.

The latest on sports betting: Delaware North is a joke. Turned Mardi Gras into a cookie cutter casino. Blames their mediocrity on outside parties. Typical and sad.

If you don’t understand how the Electoral College works and feel there’s no need to vote because of it, might be better for the country if you didn’t vote.
