Paint globe pink to find a cure
In regards to the Oct. 16 letter crticizing the NFL’s “pink awareness” campaign, I say paint the globe pink if it means a cure!
I have lost a wife and my only daughter to breast cancer. My granddaughters are wondering about themselves.

Biden did great job in his debate
In response to Glenda Wellman Conn’s Oct. 18 letter concerning Joe Biden’s “smirking” during his debate with Paul Ryan, I would say that I am much more concerned about Paul Ryan’s devastating budget cutting of Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, Pell Grants and food stamps.
I also am much more concened about Mr. Ryan’s praise of Russian-born atheist and author Ayn Rand who he calls his inspiration. I am also concerned about someone being a heart beat away from the presidency who some journalists have called a habitual liar.
I think Vice President Biden did a great job. Instead of calling Mr. Ryan a liar, he smiled at each lie and conveyed the message.

Choosing Obama is scary thought
The Aztec calendar tells us the world will end on December 21, 2012. Christians should not fear this, for to be absent here is to be present in Heaven. There is, however, something greater to fear: Election Day, Nov. 6, 2012, when Barack Obama may be re-elected President of the United States. That is scary!
Consider Obama’s first term: Thousands of coal mining job losses, EPA controls, same-sex marriage, Obamacare, etc.
The Holy Bible, 2 Chronicles 7-14 states: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
As Christians, we must love and pray for Obama; we are not, however, required to vote for him.
Independent readers, vote your heart, for God and country.
