“People wonder what's wrong with Washington. Well, it's the people themselves, that re-elect people like this former governor from South Carolina, who cheated and lied to his wife, and also lied to the people, by thinking he was above the law, and using taxpayer funds to fly to South America to meet his lover. Even though he paid the money back, the fact that he thought he could do it means he doesn't belong in Washington, D.C. But we keep sending these kinds of people to represent us, which is what is wrong.” - Hagerstown “We as humans do things from A to Z that God does not like.

Man who performed CPR is family's hero To the editor: I have a wonderful story I would like to share to honor an amazing guy. On Nov. 26, 2011, at 9:30 a.m., my mom got a phone call saying my pap, George Cunningham, had killed a deer and needed help dragging it out of the woods. My little brother went down with my mom to help my pap. My pap took the deer to my uncle's house around 11:30 to skin it and to get it cut up. While he was there, he was not feeling so well.

My three favorite phrases are, in reverse order: No. 3. "What the Founding Fathers really said was ... " No. 2. "What the Founding Fathers were trying to say was ... " No. 1. "What the Founding Fathers meant to say was ... " I think it's really cool the way we can, two centuries hence, all travel back in time and place ourselves squarely in the Founding Fathers' respective lemons. The woman who's running for Senate in Nevada recently said if one reads the Founding Fathers' writings, it's clear they were conservative.

Which document contains the main set of laws for the United States: The Declaration of Independence or The United States Constitution?

The Declaration of Independence declares, which means to state or announce openly, our country's independence, freedom from influence, control or determination of others. A constitution is the act of setting up or making up something; an establishment, an appointment, or a formation.

firstname.lastname@example.org WILLIAMSPORT - Though the sun beat down and temperatures soared into the 90s, directors of the Town Museum of Williamsport donned wigs and Revolutionary War costumes Monday morning for a ceremony to honor Williamsport's founder, Brig. Gen. Otho Holland Williams, at his grave in Riverview Cemetery at 11 a.m. "This is part of what the Fourth of July is all about," said Jerry Knode, the museum's chairman, who called Williams a great hero of the Revolutionary War and said he was one of George Washington's most trusted soldiers.

To the editor: With the situation in Iraq far from being stabilized, and possibly headed toward a civil war, Donald Currier's op-ed proclaiming George W. Bush as "a man with a vision" seems a tad premature. Actually, if you consider that Bush proclaimed an end to major military operations more than a year ago, and was wrong about WMD and any Saddam-9/11 connection, one might be inclined to say his "vision" is of the impaired variety. Currier goes on to favorably compare our president to the likes of our founding fathers - true visionaries who were misunderstood in their day. Comparing George W. to Thomas Jefferson, the father of The Declaration of Independence, among many other accomplishments of genius, is laughable.
