Tonawanda News — This is in response to the person who wrote about the football fields having kids playing football every sunday and assuming that none of these kids or parents go to church.

How about the storm that just went on in the East Coast — Sandy. The president was there immediately. Where was Bush when that storm in Louisiana took place a couple years ago? It was over a week before he made his appearance and he was in an airplane flying over it. Let’s think about it before you knock the president.

I think it’s about time New York state legalizes the opening of brothels because New York state is in a state of decline. They can make all kinds of money on the sales tax on these brothels.
