Letters to the Editor


I want to thank you who parked in my yard.

I want to thank you who left your beer cans in my yard.

I want to thank you who decided it was OK to run up and down the street at 3:30 a.m. yelling and carrying on like you are in your own little personal snow globe.

I want to thank you who think it is OK to urinate on fences and the sides of houses as you walk to your destination.

I want to thank you moms, who are too busy sipping your fruity-flavored drinks, to stop your child from roaming free in the street while cars whiz by.

I want to thank you dads, who get excessively drunk and curse and fight, while your child tugs along.

I want to thank you who fight over plastic beads worth 3 cents.

I want to thank you who believe it is OK to dump your trash in parking lots, streets and residential yards. After all, that is the correct location to place the trash, right?

It is amazing to me how much respect and decent human morals are lost just because of a holiday, a fair or a parade.

I love having fun just as much as the next person, but I always remember one simple rule: R.E.S.P.E.C.T. for others.

If I offend anyone with any of the statements above, mainly because they apply to you, then maybe you should join the rest of us and adhere to the simple rule previously mentioned. I hope I offend you in some way or another. Maybe it will do some good â?¦ then again, maybe not.

Until next year â?¦ cheers!
