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.
Are there other candidates in the race?
...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.
