Dyslexic children's letters to Satan

Back when I was employed as a librarian in May, I received 2 dozen letters of apology from a disruptive 2nd grade class. Here are a few samples:

I am Sorry that i was Playing with people paper But I am sorry for runing With Lupe and Maria and Rebecca. You are the Best teacher thank you ok.

I am sorry for daring Govonie to go inside the girls bathroom. Next time I am not going to dare Govonie or dare people to do bad stuff.
Sincerely Lucero

I think you should be more stricted with us. I think you should punish us more. I am sorry for our bevaher in libary today. I think you Should give us harder work to do.




I just read the news about the UU church in Knoxville, Tenn., where an out-of-work truck driver opened fire at a Unitarian church because he believed that liberals were ruining America. He started shooting during a children's performance of Annie (the one about the little orphan, not the other more ironically titled musical about Annie Oakley).

McCain Event Is Thwarted by Hurricane
Senator John McCain had splashy plans on Thursday intended to steal at least a little attention from Senator Barack Obama’s big speech in Berlin: He was to take a helicopter to an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and meet with Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, who is being mentioned as a possible Republican vice-presidential pick.

But Hurricane Dolly thwarted Mr. McCain’s plans to raise the issue of offshore oil drilling and the technology that he says has made it safe.

By midday Wednesday, just as blogs were trumpeting Mr. McCain’s coming campaign stop on the rig, the McCain team canceled the trip and postponed the meeting with Mr. Jindal.
The campaign blamed Hurricane Dolly, which had just crossed the Texas coast with winds reported at 100 miles an hour. It did not mention that an oil tanker had just collided with a barge near New Orleans, shutting down 29 miles of the Mississippi River and sending hundreds of thousands of gallons of heavy fuel oil into the water.

Obama Obsession

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Barack Obama: "I would say that he is well-equipped -- physically, mentally and politically."

So why is Obama getting more media coverage than John McCain? Blame free enterprise and market forces. Put Obama on the cover of a magazine and it will sell. Show Obama addressing a rally of cheering Germans and people will stay tuned. Of course, if the unfair and unbalanced liberal media bias is so pervasive, we could always revive the Fairness Doctrine...
