    I am grateful I live in a country that has freedom of the press for both those that publish and those that respond. After living in several countries that don't have that freedom to express their feelings with repercusions and seeing people being dragged from their homes, it is refreshing to see people express their feelings about candidates, early in the morning on the celebration of the New Year. In some countries, they don't have the ability to use fireworks as we do to celebrate as it can be confused for gunfire and those people didn't even have the ability to have guns as they were banned. Only the police and army had guns, theoretically, as most had buried theirs to prevent capture of the weapons. The Deseret News is a positive light in the day. Thanks.

    ...Good human interest story...This is perfect now for DNewsews , as it does not require a huge worldwide reach, such as the AP.....P.S.It won't hurt the press corps a bit to do a little praying once in a while.

    "Romney just has to prove that he's conservative enough for me," said Eleanor Stump, a 70-year-old Tea Party member from Sheldon, Iowa. "I don't like the way he's flip-flopped."

    And he has to prove the opposite to me. Isn't politics grand?

    In western Iowa, Atlantic doesn't come even close to being "tiny", although at 7100 or so people, it's no metropolis, either. "Tiny" in that area would be under 1000.
