Latarski: ‘Secrets’ Service

It's one of those things you hear about that makes you shake your head and say, "Now ain't that just stupid."

It seems a bunch of Secret Service agents working as an advance team for a presidential visit to Colombia, and not the one in South Carolina, were discovered having cavorted with prostitutes.

McCoy: Strolling on the toll walk

I hate toll roads. It's probably because I was born in Miami, and I remember my parents feeding the toll booths with nickels that I could have used to far better ends.

Anyway, I don't like paying a toll to drive on a road. I'd much rather be robbed at tax time. At least I can pretend my taxes are paying for fire service, or a new playground, or some program to better educate our future burger flippers.

Factual information

Dear Editor: After reading articles and hearing comments at the BOC meetings regarding how the fees to obtain a passport are being used, I feel we need more factual information before we become "appalled" and pass judgment about how Ms. Wilson does her job. I am appalled that there are those who would rather judge people instead of researching issues for the facts. I am appalled that there are those that will use phrases like, "unethical behavior, lack of ethical leadership, behind the scene larceny, no transparency," without given thought as to whether truth is involved.

We should have clarification ...
