Your vents, Tuesday, Sept. 17
When you play in a conference where East Carolina is the best team in the league, that ought to tell you a little something about the competition of the conference you are playing in, Marshall.
Ninety-eight percent of the American people are against the invasion of Syria and with good reason. Do you remember Vietnam and the north against the south and their civil war? It can come back to bite us big time and be very dangerous.
I believe West Virginia and Mississippi are at the top of other states when it comes to generous giving even though we are near the bottom of per capita income. Other states near the top of income are near the bottom of the list for generous giving. So maybe that is why we don't have half-a-million-dollar houses here.
Regardless of Iran's threats to attack Israel, if we attack Syria, Iran knows that Israel isn't a paper tiger like America has become. Israel will blow them off of the face of the earth. There is no red line drawing with Israel. God has given them power in these last days, and they can defeat any nation including Russia, according to Bible prophecy.
My heart bleeds for all the people killed during the two years of Syria's civil war, but our money would be better spent helping the refugees now living in Jordan. We should help them instead of attacking Syria.
It would be better and cheaper to build a bridge to Coonskin Park through the hill up around Capital High and stop wasting taxpayer money. The runners from the high school use the park every day.
Come on, St. Albans, and hire yourselves a good football coach by the name of Scott Tinsley.
Instead of the city taking almost $2 million and ripping up one mile of the iconic Kanawha Boulevard for a bike path, which would surely be a recipe for disaster, why don't they take that money and use it to get rid of the drugs and their dealers?
Some countries have two marriage services. One is a civil service and the other is a religious service. In our country, we overlook the civil services.
It wouldn't hurt to show respect for the president like you should do to any human being. Maybe he knows something about the Syrian situation that we don't know.
The lower level of Kanawha Boulevard on the West Side is already a bike path. It runs from Patrick Street to Magic Island. With a little ingenuity, they could run it to 35th Street. That would be much better for bikers.
Chinese proverb: He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool; shun him. He who knows not and knows that he knows not is willing; teach him. He who knows not and knows not that he knows is asleep; awaken him. He who knows and knows that he knows is wise; follow him.
If the Clay Center wants more rusted junk, we have it in our yards. Just let us West Virginians know, and we will drop it off. We don't like having junk in our yards, why do they?
Regarding the vent that Oliver Luck was wearing a black WVU shirt: You should get a life instead of worrying what color shirt people wear.
Vietnam, Iraq and Syria. Will we never learn? Why does Obama have to make the same stupid mistakes that Johnson and Bush made? Let those people settle their own fate. One side will win, the other will lose, and it will not affect us at all.
