Really good show
Bravo, Biloxi Little Theater! We attended your matinee performance of " And the Ball and All" Sunday, and it was so much fun. Hats off to all involved -- from James the gentleman who helped us park and took us up the elevator to Frank and all of the other wonderful performers/workers. This was our first attendance at your theater, and it won't be our last. You are another jewel in Biloxi's crown.
I can't believe how gullible the voters in this country have become. It is like people have been brainwashed into believing every word that comes out of that ego-maniac (Trump's) mouth. Do the voters of this country really believe that he is going to do everything he says. If, God forbid, he becomes president of the United States, it will be a very sad day in this country and for the world.
Thanks for the kindness
This is to the kind lady and her three children from Saucier who assisted me on the Tuxachanie Trail Saturday morning when I tripped and fell on my face as I was finishing up an 11-mile run on the trail. She and her children helped me up, picked up my hat and sunglasses and gave me tissues to wipe the blood off my face, and she very kindly insisted on walking with me the quarter-mile back to the parking area until I felt OK to go on. I would love to thank her again in person, but I will just take this opportunity to tell her and her children how deeply I appreciate their kindness and assistance and that I'm fine, with just a skinned nose and a bruised lip (and a slightly bruised ego to match). My wife thanks you also, although she was not happy with me when I got home. It's good to know there are nice people out there.
A better way
This is about the death penalty and missed opportunity. I am 100 percent against the death penalty -- it's barbaric, hypocritical and can't be undone. I have a suggestion that is perfectly logical -- instead of making it so complicated, with the three-drug fiasco that we currently use, why not give the condemned general anesthesia and kill him while he's fully unconscious? You could kill him by bleeding him out and donate his blood. You could harvest his healthy organs so others needing a transplant could live. As it is now, the drugs used to kill the condemned render their organs unfit for transplantation. Macabre and twisted you say? The whole concept of the death penalty is macabre and twisted, but this way he would feel no pain and his state-sanctioned murder could help others.
