It’s that week again: the one with the day to give thanks. In the Lebanon of my youth, “Thanksgiving” was pretty much a stand-alone event. Sure, the children knew Christmas was a month away. Yet, we weren’t chomping at the bit. Until my late teens, a month was a long time. I was worried about being good, because that old man up north was “making a list, checking it twice, trying to find out who’s been naughty or nice.”

The gun haters like to equate the presence of guns with the rate of crime. This is an extremely baseless claim but the haters cannot be deterred by facts. They like to point at England, Canada and Australia as having strict gun control and a lower crime rate than us but they are not willing to discuss the actual facts on the ground.

To the Editor: Claims that the public schools in Tennessee are indoctrinating children by teaching too much of any religion are a logical fallacy at best.

Dear Editor: So much is happening in our world with politics and opinions and persecuting of Christians that it’s hard to even keep up anymore. I have more questions than answers. I long for the days to come back when we truly were the “Land of the Free.” What about the way our higher courts are treating God’s people? True Christians promote peace. Isn’t that what we stand for in our Country and what everyone wants? The media tries to make us look foolish and malign us.
