Congratulations, Jacob Korba, on your Eagle Scout project!

Focus on the positive. Nobody wants to be around Debbie Downer, even your loving family members.

Please have more stories like the one on Floyd Johnson. What a lovely story. What a nice man.

These ridiculous gun vs. car comparisons are asinine and miss one big point: Someone may die in a car accident, but killing is not the purpose of a car. A gun, however, has one purpose, to kill or practice killing. I’m not against guns, but I am against idiotic arguments.

Thanks to whoever turned in my friend’s wallet at Kmart. I hope you spent his rent money wisely. He’s out of work.

Everyone in prison doesn’t have a mental disorder. Some are stupid, some are lazy, and some are just opportunists.

Give every taxpayer a stimulus check again — this time, a check that is enough to help someone. I think $1,000 for every taxpayer would be good, with the stipulation that the money be spent — and not saved — to help the economy.

It would be nice to have adults running America instead of squabbling children.

I’ve purchased every weight-loss program that has been advertised on late-night TV. So far, the only weight loss I have seen has been in my wallet.

I once had a little Ford Maverick with a hot V-8 in it. One day, I drove as fast as I could to see how long it would take me to get to work. Took 20 minutes. The next day, I drove normally and I got there in 22 minutes. Driving fast isn’t worth the danger of having an accident.
