To the Editor: November 6, presidential election day, many Democrats and Republicans will vote not in “The Spirit of Love” but in “The Spirit of Hate.” Hank Williams Jr., a few weeks ago, entertained his southern audience at Billy Bob’s with the lyrics, “We have a Muslim for President,” and “We hate him.” No one got up and left!
On the local front, Charles Lennon in the Sept. 16 Daily Sun opinion page, in my opinion, is promoting hate. Mr. Lennon commented that people are waking up to the reality that we elected a dictator who hates America. Mr. Lennon suggests we pray for forgiveness. For what, I might ask?
I’d suggest Hank Williams Jr. and Mr. Lennon read “the Gospel according to John.”
Before the feast of the Passover, Jesus talks to his disciples about love and hate.
John 15:18 If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
Remember — when you hate or promote hate, you also are hating “our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
Need more world news
To the Editor: I like the Corsicana Daily Sun. The only thing that concerns me is there is barely any national news, I take the Dallas newspaper, so I get most all the national news I need. But, what about the people that don't take another paper?
We are having trouble big time in a lot of countries in the middle east right now, they have killed our Ambassador and other American people while we are there trying to help them. This started on 9/11. Now our President is playing this down saying it wasn't planned, they are just mad because someone made a movie they didn't like. If you watched it on TV it looked very well planned. Whether it was planned or not, is not the question.
Why do we keep giving millions and billions of our hard earned dollars to terrorists that buy guns with that money. Does that make sense to anyone? They hate us, you can't make friends by giving them money.
Our country is broke, we can either print more money, or borrow it from China.
But wait. Why can't we just stop giving money to those who hate us?

Some stories I’ve heard
Sometimes, stories come to me second- or third-hand, but they stick with me and I just need to share them.
‘Yeah, but ...’
“I’ve got good news, and bad news.”
It’s a time-honored phrase that boiled down to it’s simplest terms is really explained best in only two words — “Yeah, but ...”
Let’s hear it for butterflies
Let’s face it. When national leaders agree to attend summit meetings, we don’t expect many tangible and/or desirable results.
If I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times — I hate computers! I don’t want anything to do with cell phones with their myriads of applications. I don’t want anything to do with “blogging,” “tweeting,” “friending,” and “liking.”
Often, you start off your Monday with some semblance of an idea what the day and week will hold. Although working in a newsroom will teach you one thing: you don’t have control over anything.
There is nothing gradual about spring in Texas.
It’s Round-Up Time in Texas
For the longest time, “round-up time in Texas” meant “headin’ up and movin’ out” cattle. Cowboys atop horses undertook the massive undertaking.
Our new neighbor
Our house sits almost in the bottom center of a horseshoe of new homes which all back up on a man-made lagoon. Ours is one of the few homes that does not have an extended screened-in lanai but we are perfectly satisfied with the standard one
Smoker no more
So, I quit smoking.
Of course, just admitting that I once smoked is almost sinful in this day and age, akin to admitting I used to sell heroin to orphans, but it’s different now than it was when I started.
Read a book
No secret here, I was one of those odd children who would rather stay in her room reading books than play outside.
Fortunately, little Nancy (the madre) limited our television watching, and video games included nothing but Pong on Atari at that time, so once you were done with your alloted 30 minutes of television viewing for the day, you were on your own.
