John McCain and one reader's definition of a hero To the editor: There have been several letters to the editor and several calls to Mail Call about John McCain being a hero.

"Hagerstown, John McCain isn't alone in wanting the 14th Amendment changed. Founding fathers didn't intend for us to be used by illegals coming here for medical, free food, housing, when some seniors cannot afford medication. Our veterans are rationed financial and medical help. The 14th was added after Civil War so the slaves could have citizenship upon being freed. Slaves were born here and Native Americans were added too, as they were not considered citizens as they were tribunal.

We need more conservative-minded women in public life such as Sarah Palin To the editor: Sarah Palin burst on to the personality scene as a result of her being named as the vice presidential candidate alongside John McCain in his run for the presidency in 2009. Why has this attractive and accomplished lady caused such a stir? She has been adored and vilified from the outset. It seems that women in particular find her not to their liking. And these are often the very same women that have touted women's rights in the past.

"Do you tweet?" "How long have you been twittering?" "You need to get on Facebook!" "Oh no, I got the fail whale. " Sounds like a different language, doesn't it? It kind of is. Six months ago, if I heard the word twitter, I would have thought of a bird. You know, tweeting. Or I might have simply said, "Excuse me?" Now, I'm learning that twittering is a new way to communicate. It's still kind of new to many journalists and people in our business, especially to some of us old dogs who occasionally turn our noses up when new tricks are proposed.
