Tonawanda News — The Canal Fest organizers need to do more to institute basic food sanitation. One worker was squeezing lemons for refills with her bare hands in between handling money. I asked her if she had just used her bare hands and she straight up ignored me. I couldn’t drink it. Also saw many workers handling money with their food gloves on. Nasty.

What is this flawed but give Spitzer another chance argument in the Other View in Friday’s paper? Why? What makes him so deserving and what does he have to offer? So forget setting an example or standards. If he was a Republican, would it be any different?

Obama says he could have been Trayvon Martin years ago but Obama went to a high school in Hawaii where many millionaires went, and he always lived in good areas. Mr. President, that Sanford neighborhood has a lot of crime and Zimmerman would be going to jail if the prosecutor did a third or fourth degree manslaughter charge, not the murder charge that couldn’t be proved beyond a reasonable doubt — it’s not racism but an incompetent, high-on-self prosecutor.

Great idea for the money expected with the Tonawanda Coke verdict — maybe money could be given to the workers who lost their jobs so the fines could be paid. Or the fines could even be used to refit the smoke stacks so as to fix the pollution problem. But what if Coke goes bankrupt and there’s little money left to pay the fines? Guess they could go to China?

Gays should not be so “proud.” Don’t you know that is why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah? Mainly because of homosexuality. Scriptures in Romans says those who practice homosexuality and those who approve of them will be destroyed.
