More on Newt Gingrich; More on Priest Sex Scandals …

To the Editor:

Newt Gingrich is a very peculiar politician. He is well‑read, intelligent, and calculating. He uses his knowledge to out perform most politicians, and can craft an argument that seems to make sense. He is so good at it, you have may not realize he slipped a knife betweem your ribs.

I do not care what he thinks, but he could be just the kind of person the Tea Party‑ites, and other right wingers, might find attractive. He is literate, he can put a good speech together, and he knows all the points to make in order to appeal to that audience.

He has not been idle these last many years. He has been watching everything and has been busy crafting a strategy that believes will make him politically relevant once again. I don’t care what he thinks, but Newt Gingrich knows how to position himself in order to sieze whatever opportunity comes his way. We may not care, but we should keep an eye on him nontheless.

To the Editor:

One doesn’t have to be a homosexual to be a pedophile; getting married doesn’t cure or stop pedophilia. Child abuse is a crime. Period. Neither the clergy nor laity of any religion whatsoever should be above the law.
