Attacks on the innocent deserve execution To the editor: I believe I speak for many when I question just what this world has become. It seems with each and every passing day some small child is either abducted, murdered then discarded like refuse, or abused in so many other incomprehensible ways.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Forty-five years ago, Mark Rosette sat in front of his television watching history. The president of the United States had been assassinated. Rosette was a teenager when John F. Kennedy died in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. Rosette decided to honor Kennedy's memory on the anniversary of his death by participating in Saturday's JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon. But not as a competitor. "I wanted to volunteer," he said. Standing behind a table near Dam 4 Road, Rosette lined up bottles of water and Gatorade in anticipation of thirsty runners.
