Two hands better than one

I was taking my granddaughter to school the other day and saw a school bus driver turning onto one of the side streets to pick up some more children. As she was turning, I noticed she was turning the steering wheel with one hand and with her other hand she was talking on a cellphone. In 21 states, it is illegal for school bus drivers to talk on a cellphone while driving. Missouri is not one of those states. But come on, I think there should be some kind of rule set forth by the school system to prevent this. They cannot be paying full attention to what they are doing if they are on the phone. Our children's lives are in their hands and I want it to be in both of them, not just one.


Here comes the judge

Okay, here's my deal with people like you. You are the "Christian." A real true Christian can read the Bible and see that judging another human being regarding the color of his skin, his sexuality, who he marries is none of your business. The Holy Bible says this, and I quote, Matthew 7:1 "for in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you." As well as Matthew 7:3 "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye?" Don't worry about other people and what they do, who they marry, worry a­bout yourself! It is not your place to judge. This is a free country based on principles obviously higher than most Christians who don't even follow the word of Christ. You need to read up and learn, please. And shame on the Standard Democrat for including such disgusting discrimination in their paper. This isn't the place to talk about someone being wrong for what they do. Such a hick town.
