Maybe Herenton will run against Steve Cohen next year. And then all those folks who fled Memphis to escape him will have to move back to vote against him twice...
It is amazing to me that people cannot weigh the good versus the bad that people do in life before totally condemning or glorifying. The measure of respectability in the world should be how we walk the road and not how many times we wind up in the ditch. Every person who sins can win in this game and Tammy Faye was an example of that philosophy. She was a victim as well as an adversary for many, but she always wound up at her destination regardless of the trips to the wayside. Give her AND GIVE JIM some credit. Jim Bakker has resurrected his sorry existence to become a fine Christian man who is performing in Branson at a Breakfast Club there working along with his son and others to give help and assistance to those in need. This time he takes NO money! The show struggles from day to day trying to pay outlandish bills, but always has a great group that appears and performs with him. He took nothing from me and millions of others who couldn't stand him while he preached at Heritage USA. Most of those that sent money to support Tammy and Jim did so willingly and wanted to see their dream become a success. Too bad it didn't and now we recognize the playland is grown up in weeds along with the air conditioned dog house. What a pity! We need to see folks for the good they do and not the evil they commit. Let's remember that when the index finger is pointed toward others, that 4 fingers point back to our lives and living modes.
Frankly it would be better if you circled a S and put a bold red line through it. A lot of readers of this paper would prefer to surrender and have chosen to profaine our nation's leaders and military in doing so. Vote Joe Lieberman for president and I'll go from red to blue. People who know a lot about being prisoners should be willing to help others gain their freedom in spite of the politicians who don't want to give that freedom in Iraq.
