READERS’ FORUM: Aug. 19, 2012


In response to the recent letter by Shirley Thomas:

I am not a Chuck Norris fan, nor do I subscribe to the NRA newsletters, but I do know our right to bear arms was not intended for us to be able to hunt game or have sport. It was specifically designed for “We the people” to be able to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government.

I hate to beat a dead horse, but it’s true. If you outlaw guns then only outlaws (and crazy people) will have guns. One of the first things Hitler did was to outlaw and confiscate firearms from the civilians. You shouldn’t wonder why.

Your views sound passive and liberal, but that’s OK, that’s what makes the world go around and I thank God we all still have our freedom to express our opinions.

Still some good people out there

 I don’t remember your names but my wife and I would sincerely like to thank the individuals who were first on the scene and came to the aid of my wife at her auto accident on Aug. 6 at the Rea Park entrance and South Seventh Street. Your thoughtfulness, kindness and caring made her feel safe and secure in a very difficult situation.

We would also like to thank the emergency response people, THPD officers and the staff of the Regional Hospital ER, all of these people’s foremost concerns were the safety and well-being of my wife.

Again, thanks to all,

— Sharon and Ernie Horrall

Terre Haute

Would real Saul please stand up

OK, what did you do with the real Saul Rosenthal?

The last three letters that the Tribune has published from a man claiming to be Saul Rosenthal have been succinct, lacked any kind of name-calling, quickly made a cogent point, and supported the opinion with documented references.

What did you do with our real Saul?
