    For many, this program has brought awareness of whom their Perry County ancestors were, how they lived and believed and, for some, answered questions about their family’s folklore.

  • Going to war in Iraq won’t work any better this time

    Insanity is sometimes defined as doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. By that definition, the United States’ engaging in military action in Iraq now would be insane.

    It didn’t work before, which is why there is basically a civil war going on there now. As we said before, the only way the United States can control who governs Iraq is to make it a permanent U.S. territory or state, which few, if any, would be willing to do.
