Sound Off for Dec. 25

Equal in his sight

Who do you think you are? That question is directed to any group that thinks one life matters more than another. "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight." Jesus loves all of us equally.

I hope I am wrong, but I don't think it matters who the Republican candidate is. The Democrats could run Peter Rabbit for president and win. Here's why: The entitlement mentality so pervasive in this country and the anti-Republican voting blocs are in the majority. Sadly, I think the fat lady has sung.

This happened

To expand on a Sound Off on Wednesday regarding people who cannot tell time on an analog clock, about 40 years ago when I was managing a large retail store, I had a new employee. His second day at work, I had him bringing items from the stockroom to put on display. After showing him around the stockroom, I sent him for more items telling him which aisle and which shelf. He came back saying he did not see the items. I told him to go back and look up right at 10 o'clock, and he would see them. He looked at his digital watch and said, "It's just 9:30 now, why do I have to wait until 10 o'clock?" A few years ago, I was a customer at the deli counter in a store needing just one-third pound of sliced meat for a recipe. The young man behind the counter appeared to be in his early 20s. He thought and thought and looked at the scales. He handed the sliced meat to me, the label showed .13 pounds instead of .33 pounds.
