We all pay for obesity in the long run
As some parents apparently are not too concerned about their children’s health, once again it becomes someone elses responsibility to look into this matter. Why would anyone want to contribute to the one-third already obese or overweight? Junk food is usually cheaper in the short haul, but costly in the long run. We are seeing the results of faulty diets in the past with obesity and diabetes. Why have to pay more in the long run, rather than trying to redirect the wayward from binging on food that only creates problems down the road? Let’s not play politics with our future generations!

Bergdahl should feel the weight of military justice
I want to make sure I got the basis for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release correct: He went AWOL during time of war. He professed his shame at being an American. So, for that, President Obama releases five terrorists. These terrorists are going to be involved in killings in the Middle East. It is not if, but when. I hope the military gives Bergdahl the full weight of military justice and, if found guilty, he spends his life either in a military prison or as a pariah despised by every military member who served or is serving.
