I think that Iron&clay's comments were about the most insensitive that
I have read and the DN should be ashamed for printing them. What a horrible
thing to say to those familes who had loved ones killed or mamed for life. I can
think of a thousand things to say to you, but the DN would not publish any of
them. Sometimes I just don't understand the censoring at the
DN. It must just depend on who is working at that particular time.

repentance are possible, even for something as serious as whatever caused this
to happen. It's hard and it takes a real change in what you believe
sometimes. You have to believe it's possible first, then believe it is
right, then desire to work towards that goal. Sometimes we doubt that
possibility in ourselves, sometimes in others who have wronged us. But it is
possible. We all know right from wrong and we all choose which one we follow
Yikes! Was the father trying to stop his son from doing something crazy?
And all I can wonder is how much this episode will cost taxpayers.
Huma Abedin, the wife of Anthony Weiner (new candidate for mayor of NYC) and
chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, apeaks Farsi.
