Tip of the Hat

Saturday, October 6, 2012 - 12:01 am

One year since Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been repealed! And despite Republicans' warnings that this would destroy our military, there have been virtually no problems with military readiness and cohesion. Our best and brightest are adults, unlike the fear-mongers.

On July 19, my husband, Pastor Haugen, was killed in a pedestrian-auto accident at the … Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana. A tremendous thank you to everyone at the bank, especially Eric, the TRAA ambulance people, the police lady who drove me to the hospital, Dr. Reed, the trauma surgeon at Lutheran Hospital, and all the ER staff. Your thoughtfulness, expertise and kindness will always be remembered.

Congratulations to President Carter's grandson for his part in releasing Mitt Romney's “47 percent video.” Given how much Republicans dump on Mr. Carter all the time, this is sweet, poetic justice!
