To The Daily Sun,
Tom LeMay, I want to thank you for mentioning me in your letter and for not mailing it to my home, laughing out loud. I admit I had to go back and look for old letters to shake my memory in regards to your name. Sadly, I cannot remember what I did five days ago anymore without a posty. I am so sick of the news as well and I go out of my way to read anything happy and positive. Which can be very hard (and often ignored) to find in the papers, on TV, online, and even from people's own mouths.
I am still opposed to Free the Nipple. I am all for equality for women, but not in that way. You considered me "prudish," I consider myself in this matter as "respecting." Not everyone feels "happy" about toples ness. And the "views" of those who are against it matter just as much as those who want to be topless. I hope that someday there will be a happy middle ground for all. As far as researching my "opponents" in this matter, damn straight I did. You don't walk into a gunfight with a fork! The two men who wrote in were from out of state. And what I wrote about their lifestyle(s) was the truth, not an attack. I just shared some of the information that was available online for anyone to look up. And now I am happily moving on from this topic.
I have had to "look" into a few writers and their letters to get a sense of what I was "entering" into lately. It has been quite interesting at times. With that being said, I did find online the "Bishop's" letter about Halloween as mentioned and his views on that holiday. I will leave it at that and just back away slowly. I agree FULLY with you being a good honest person and enjoying life is the way to live. And if you "mess" up along the way you're not going to Hell in a handbasket! I find all religions fascinating, as well as many cultures. And I get a sense you are good person with a wonderful zeal for life and a wicked sense of humor.Thank you so very much for sharing that in this paper. We need more of it and less anger,judging,and entitlement.
So I will leave you with this: An agnostic and a Catholic went into the Holy Grail for a drink ... and they had a BLAST! Have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy and don't forget to share a smile or two with anyone you may pass. Your smile maybe the only kindness they have received that day.
