The Rant

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 12:01 am

The Rant is The News-Sentinel's anonymous sound-off forum. The readers' views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The News-Sentinel.

America is in trouble. The people don't trust the government, and they don't trust the people. Our leaders are wrapped up in scandal after scandal while our enemies are laughing and preparing for our destruction. Most of this is due to shutting God out of America. Morals are not being taught any more is our schools. We are reaping what we have sown.

Sports teams are often named to portray strength, like Bears, Raptors, Tigers. So if a team is named for a Native American, Braves, Warriors, etc., isn't it a compliment to their positive traits rather than an insult? Redskins is celebrating warriors. I'd rather be a Brave than an Oriole or Cardinal any day.

Regarding the construction on West Jefferson Boulevard: Too bad they're not including a sidewalk/bicycle lane. Guess the pedestrians/bicyclists will have to risk their lives again.

Dear ACPL (Allen County Public Library): Anything by V.C. Andrews is not young adult. Put it back in the adult fiction area — shame on you! Just because it happens to be about children does not mean it's for children!

I can't believe all the sports articles since March on all the AAU basketball players. They give their names, scores of no-count games, points, assists, etc. Would like to read just one sports article on the academics of all these players. How many enroll at Ivy League schools? How many quit school after their season is over, never get a GED, never graduate and don't have SATs to attend college? There are very few lifetime basketball jobs available.

Having sex is a choice. Having a baby is a privilege. Think about your choices before a privilege is produced.
