There was a day when correct spelling and grammar was to be taken for granted from professional writers, B1RD., I feel sure Katie appreciates the eagle eyes of the commenters about these unnecessary errors.

Ah, but you are represented by your 'Pastor', right? Don't worry, "Our Father's house has many rooms . . ." Of course, as a Baptist, yours may be near the escalator and the laundry room, but you will be welcome, I'm sure!

An excellent comment! I tried, but you, sir, did your homework. Listen up, John! Mel Calvert Batesville, IN

Let not your heart be troubled, John. While this Pope is sometimes lacking in political understanding, as we are experiencing it here in the U. S., he has an impeccable record of fighting Marxism in Argentina. And, while I have long been a big fan of your erudite comments and conclusions, I urge you to be a little less strident against our Pope. After all, he is only infallible, as all Popes, in liturgical matters; he has a right to comment on any social issue and I will have no problem with either of you in the future. I hope you two can kiss and make up, (There, some grist for the mill of the few perverts in your following!) Mel Calvert Batesville, IN

Mr. Ransome: Erudite and to the point as always. But i almost missed it because of an ad that covered vertically the entire left half of my screen. Even though it was almost transparent, it was so annoying, (only one cup of coffee, so far) that I closed the page only to think, "OK, I'll give it one more try." This time it was gone. I am an advertiser online and if I knew my ads were doing this I would have a fit! Why annoy people that aren't interested in my product. If they want the info they will open the ad, so give them the option of opting out! Opt-in leads are the most effective, anyway. Keep up the attack on the anointed one!
John: It really puzzles me to see you cling to your contention that Obama is a failure. Reading all of the erudite posts on this page and the many that have gone before it, shows me that more readers, by far, recognize his genius. Obama is a spectacular success; more so than any other leftist who has ever attempted to take us down the path of Socialism. I know you are a very intelligent and am holding out for your announcement that "It's all been a strategy, guys. I can now say that the huge majority finally see it for what it really is: "A well conceived, if rather ham-handedly run plan and enabled by the so-called conservative opposition!" Please, Mr. Ransom, say it's so!
We will never know the elation, the absolute joy that was manifested around the world as when Mandela was released from prison, Until, of course, Obama goes into the joint!
Oh, I forgot "From Forbes, January 30th, 2103" Have I really slept that long? No wonder I didn't recognize my wife this morning! Mel
John, what a great article! If only you could find someone who cares, to proof for you. Examples: " Is was just last year . . ." - " . . . the largest decreased in spending . . ." - "Since it's going to costs the . . ." and, "It doesn't it matter . . ." I know, there will be those who accuse me of nit-picking but, on the positive side it did make me re-read a fine piece that no one with half a brain could argue against successfully. Just one more thought. You don't need two mokes who would never experience the thrill of a 'standing O' (if it weren't for the depressed IQs of their audiences) to make your case, Remember Mr. Barnum's famous old saying, "I don't care what you say about me, boys. Just spell my name right!" Those two, Colbert and Stewart, do not merit your free PR. Love your humor far better! Mel Calvert
