Speak Up: War and Sugarplum fairies


Wednesday, January 17, 2018

I would like to make a comment about the Speak Up in the Dec. 31st paper.

The caller thinks it would be a good idea to send convicts over to fight the wars.

Sure thing.

That is what we need to do is to trust our national security to criminals who may shoot anyone at will including their own.

What's the worst thing that could happen to them?

They get sent back to jail or just run off and live in another country.

Also, to the caller who wants the sugarplum fairy to hit someone in the head and knock some common sense into him, that sugarplum fairy is not strong enough and doesn't have a big enough stick to knock some common sense into that man.
