Where are you?

When will we the people have the opportunity to meet with our Representative Steven Palazzo? Congressman, if you fear us, you have no business in Washington!

Overlooked

President Trump earlier this week presented fake news awards to several media outlets displaying his hostility toward them. Strangely enough, he did not give himself an award since he is a bigger fake news broadcaster than all those media combined.

Not interested

Please stop asking me what I think of the next princess or starting conversation about the next princess. I know nothing about the next princess, and I’m really not interested. God save the queen or whatever.

Speed limit

Government Street in Ocean Springs has residential houses, schools, and pedestrians all along the whole length of it. Make the speed limit 30 mph. It would be safer for everyone and accommodate golf carts.

Fake News!

Just read Charlie Mitchell’s article in the Jan. 17 Sun Herald. He states in Trump’s first year not much had been achieved. Did he miss the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act? Mr. Mitchell should win a Fake News Award.

Think about it

Amazing to me how many in Congress rant more about foreigners and illegal immigrants than us lowly, run-of-the-mill American citizens they are all vowed to protect and serve. Think about that.

What next?

The state flag has not seemed to stop visitors from visiting Mississippi. Summertime, the beach parking bays are full of Louisiana tags. The way I see it is that if the flag is changed, then something else will be next. Until words like “South” and “Mississippi” are not spoken and removed from the dictionary, some will not be happy.
