This is news? Anybody who has even remotely followed journalism knew Cooper was gay 20 years ago.
There have been gays in politics and the military for years. Time magazine even devoted its cover and a lead story to the homosexual in America as far back as 1969.
And let’s be real: Likening the LGBT movement to civil rights is like comparing Barney Frank to Ronald Reagan. With all of the coverage, worldwide and domestic, why does the LGBT movement feel it necessary to keep moving with its agenda? Now it’s gay marriage; what are next, gay astronauts?
I am not homophobic; I just think there are more pressing concerns facing us right now, such as the appalling suicide rate among our returning and wounded soldiers, a nuclear Iran, reawakening sectarian violence in Iraq, world hunger, drugs and totally insane fundamentalist terrorists.
So you are a man or woman who wants to marry the same sex? Fantastic! Mazel tov! Have a beautiful life.
Let’s just be aware we not lose sight of the other problems on the screen.
N. Kokomo deserves better treatment
At the end of our recent snowstorm Jan. 16, I ventured out from my home on North Webster Street. I did not encounter a single plow or salt truck from Smith Road to Sycamore Street.
When I tried to contact our Street Department, I was told it closed at 3 p.m. and was not offered an after-hours number.
Upon calling the Mayor’s Office, I was told he was in a meeting. Shortly thereafter, I was contacted and told he was out of town.
My neighborhood has been well taken care of since my last tete-a-tete with Mayor Goodnight. Doesn’t the rest of north Kokomo deserve better treatment?
I am calling for the resignation or termination of our street supervisor!
