I was very discomfited to see the whole insert thing about gay pride last Wednesday [Pride, Special Section, June 18]. It disgusts me, really, that our town-my town-is not only OK with it, but that we endorse and encourage it! Enough that Wednesday Journal is making booklets to stick in all of their papers so everybody can see how happy we are with this vulgar affair.
I was also sad to see that the first "dog wedding" is between to males [You may now sniff the bride, News, June 25]. Do you seriously think dogs are gay? I can see if you're marrying them just for fun as Tom Van Winkle stated, but marrying same-sex dogs I just don't see the point of. Why would you want to?
I would also like to thank Elizabeth Disken [Step it up, OP, our July 4 parade is lame! Viewpoints, June 11] for "feeling strongly enough about something" to bring up her opinion about the parades.
I am usually in a parade (portraying Civil War veterans) so I don't typically see
So I just wanted to let her know that her letter was appreciated by some.
