Whoever is responsible for the Speak Up columns that are in the paper daily, I am trying to wonder if you are pro-Trump, are you alt.right?

I was calling to thank Bill Stancil for the wonderful article for Darrell Johnson. It really made it sound like Darrell.

Darrell's mom had asked for any of his teammates to come back and be honorary pallbearers.
