Another great letter, by a thinking American. Want to run for office, Pharris?

RE "One last thing, in the matter that if we stopped providing funding for abortions, society would have to pay for all the orphans that would be produced"
The government does not provide funding for abortions.

RE "No way do I feel that I should pay taxes so that people who do not respect God’s laws and my beliefs can participate in sex outside marriage."
This is America. God's laws and your beliefs are irrelevant.

RE "If you want to have sex, have it on your dime, not mine."
I guess we know now that Pharris Knight won't pay much for sex, and thinks nobody else should, either. People who place so little value on sex shouldn't be instructing others in how to go about it..

This is the United States of America and on our currency it reads: "In God we Trust!" A Christian's beliefs are always held in higher reguard than an infidels. Does that mean the Government should stop teaching sex education in their schools? Who pays for sex? Prostution is illegal in this State. Kitty have you been spending too much time in South Fayetteville?

RE "This is the United States of America and on our currency it reads: 'In God we Trust!'"
So? That says nothing about God's law or individual belief-- particularly as either is exercised as a Christian.

RE "Kitty have you been spending too much time in South Fayetteville?"
Not as much as you have, apparently, but then I'm there voluntarily, and I pass through without stopping (except for meals at Mama Dean's). Let me know the next time you're there and I'll stop in and we can talk via those telephones on each side of the window.

I spend a lot of time on S. School. I like customers "stopping," (sic) in. I learned that sic thing from Freeby. He's so smart.

Its supposed to be "visiting" not "stopping" (sic) Come down and visit me, I'm lonely.

Can I expect a "visit" from you tomorrow, Kitty? Since you know my name and all about me, just ask for me and go up to that phone. I'll be looking for you.

RE "Its supposed to be 'visiting' not 'stopping' (sic)"
Reread my sentence. "Stopping" is correct and appropriate. When I pass through an area without stopping, "stopping" is what I am not doing. When I stop somewhere to eat, "stopping" is what I am doing.

RE "Can I expect a 'visit' from you tomorrow, Kitty?"
No, but the next time I visit the Arts Center of the Ozarks, I might contrive to stop at the old Jones home as well. Do you still inhabit the room over the garage?
