Hair apparent

Something tells me that the Republicans will never produce a healthcare bill unless and until Donald Trump and Rand Paul can come to terms with their hair.

Is this right?

Just to clarify, if an American president gets caught, he goes on with his job, retires and makes millions. When a football coach gets caught, he immediately loses his job and is disgraced and loses his future salary. OK, now I got it.

Disheartening

I find it a slap in the face for our environment to barter for two trash pick ups and recycle every other week. Instead of encouraging recycling Gulfport is discouraging it. So sad.

Better idea

Why doesn’t the city of Gulfport invest in an indoor amusement park, something that will make money instead of throwing it away on an aquarium that families can’t afford to visit? And, besides, when you visit it once you don’t want to go back. However, kids and adults will always want to go back to an amusement park. Come on, Gulfport.

Pencils 101

The numbers on pencils refer to the hardness of the lead point. No. 2 hardness is just right for test scoring machines and easier to erase with less smudging and for regular written work: neither too dark nor too light. Higher number pencils: 3, 4, etc. are ideal for artwork, drawing and shading. And that “lead” is actually a graphite mixture, not lead at all.

Donate please

The Salvation Army refurnished my entire kitchen after Katrina. My neighbors and friends also received large donations and gifts from the Salvation Army. I can only speak for myself when I say that no other organization donated anything to me or to any of my friends, although I was told that donations were given to several other organizations claiming to be helping hurricane victims. Please in the future send and or give all your donations to the Salvation Army. They are the only true non-profit organization on the Coast, no matter what others may claim.
