Don't forget Bill

Somebody ranting about Trump and those of us who voted for him must have forgotten about Bill Clinton.

Slick Willie set the bar on sexual misconduct in the Oval Office and in Arkansas. The battle axe he's married to led the "Bimbo Eruption" destruction team. Does that jog your memory?

So, leftists and liberals, climb down off your high horse on who did what and try your best to make America a better place.

Keep in mind that Denton is still a small town and a lot of people know your actions and lifestyles and find a lot of things awry there. I'm not judging but just being a "fruit inspector."

As the good book says, by their fruit you will know them.

Alice Gore,

School lesson

"The white men were roused by a mere instinct of self-preservation ... until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South, to protect the Southern country."

-- Woodrow Wilson, 28th president of the United States,
in the film "*
Birth of a Nation*"

This is racist.

Just this morning, we were headed to Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. My son is in kindergarten and gently asked me, "Who is Woodrow Wilson?"

In that moment, I had to tell the truth and replied, "He was president of the United States and a very racist man.

My son didn't miss a beat, "So, why is our school named after a racist?"

I replied, "Because racists named it and racists continue to protect the name."

I dropped him off shortly thereafter. Walking outside, I looked up at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and wondered how we could ever teach our kids not to be racist when we educate them in spaces that honor racists?

We can't.
