Last week I wrote a letter to the Kansas City Star that was published in this morning’s edition (April 30, 2007). Lewis Duiguid, who is Vice President for Community Relations for The Star wrote an editorial last week on Gun Control. In his article he cited the Branch Davidian incident in Waco, TX and the Oklahoma City Bombing as reasons. I was first chapped because he had the year for both events wrong. As a native Okie, I remember well the bombing in 1995 (not 1997 as he wrote). I also thought his arguments were illogical and ridiculous. Why would you cite a bombing in an article about Gun Control? At any rate, you can click here to go the KC Star website version of my letter, which also has a link to Duiguid’s original editorial. On The Star's web version, you'll also be able to read people's comments to the Letter, which is always interesting. Though they're not always very flattering towards "yours truly."
Speaking of non-flattering comments about me....check out some of the comments on my "Transgender Kids" blog, it appears to have "struck a nerve" with some. Just keep in mind, the words of Jesus: "Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets." (Luke 6:22-23)
