Speakout 3/2

I contacted an insurance agent for my car insurance. I had to give them my Social Security number for a credit check and then when I checked on my real estate number, they also needed my Social Security number for a credit check for them to base the amount my premiums would be. This is against the privacy act. Is there an insurance lawyer around who could provide information about this?

I just found a good replacement for Dan Rather, the little blonde reporter on Fox News, named Martha. If she hasn't got him beat any way you look at it, I would be mighty fooled. She's a super reporter. Remember, Martha on Fox News.

Jesus was not specifically targeted for torture by the Romans. Torture and crucifixion was the standard way the Romans killed non-citizens. Remember the Spartacus revolt when 2,000 slaves were crucified along a big highway there? It was standard. And for the churches to dwell on that, as if He were specifically targeted diverts attention away from the important thing, which is what Jesus taught. I'm sure if He were here, He would say the same thing.

It's rather disgusting to listen to so-called smart Americans downgrade President Bush. He's a good, decent man, stands for what's right and has a good wife. People talk about him like he's a piece of trash. This America, as we call it, has slipped right into Sodom and Gomorrah. God bless him. They talk about him like they did Christ, and they crucified Him. I guess that's what they'll do to Bush.

Would it be possible for you to print the TV guide in the newspaper a little larger so we can see it? We who have vision problems can't read it.

If the St. Louis Rams don't want Kurt Warner, I would love to see the man go to the Oakland Raiders. I think he would be a good quarterback.

I am calling about the Winter Princess travesty. I was there by 6:30 p.m. and they told us they could get people in. I waited for an hour until they finally told us it was full. I did not get to see my granddaughter in the Winter Princess Pageant. I had to wait in the freezing cold. They need to have bigger accommodations. At 6:30 p.m. they said they were full. That was ridiculous!

I'd like to give a great big thank you to a lady who called and gave my handicapped daughter some large clothing. We appreciate everything she has done for us. She really made her day. My daughter was able to use the clothing she gave her. This lady was just a Godsend. She did more than she had to do, but apparently this is a lady with a big heart. God bless you.
