Here's proof of 'Bush's Brownshirts'



To the editor:

A letter to the editor in the Sunday Opinion section criticizes a cartoon depicting a mob of thuggish people chasing a man labeled "Miami Dade Canvassing Board" and captioning the cartoon as "Bushes Brownshirts." The letter goes on to say these folks believed they were watching the theft of a presidential election and were rightly agitated.

This gang of protesters has since been identified as imported Washington political insiders - by name - from a picture in the Washington Post last week. Every one of 10 people in the photo was associated with a Republican office-holder or a Republican organization. This protest was obviously set up by the Bush campaign and it was not a spontaneous demonstration staged by agitated people.

Keedysville's bright lights



To the editor:

We want to express many, many thanks to the Keedysville residents who so graciously opened their 16 homes and churches for yesterday's Candlelight Tour. The quiet walk in the crisp night air offered a splendid view of the many lights and decorations on the buildings throughout the town.

Sam's Club makes a village



To the editor:

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Children's Village, I want to thank the many supporters who donated $1 each to Children's Village during the month-long fund-raiser conducted by Sam's Club to benefit our life-safety education program.

The Sam's Club "community involvement" team, chaired by Lynn Bibbe, provided the vehicle through which the generosity of many grew into the substantial amount of $2,600 (including a $1,000 matching contribution from Sam's Club corporate headquarters) recently donated to Children's Village. We are grateful to all who participated in this program. Your support helps us continue providing, to all Washington County second-grade students, the unique and valuable life-safety training program that is the hallmark of Children's Village.

We sincerely thank each of our sponsors and Sam's Club for being so generous. It does indeed "take a village." We are fortunate our students have the support of a very caring village!

Director for Development

College is a big choice



To the editor:

As a parent I am now involved for the second time in five years in helping a child in selecting a college to attend. I have learned that although as parents we can advise and counsel children in selecting a college, the final decision should be theirs.

Of course choices many times we will be restrained by finances and other factors. Our children will be selecting a college where they will be spending four years of their lives and I firmly believe they are capable of making a choice that is right for them.
