Dear Gina and Dean and family, our sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. I knew your mother before she moved in with you Gina and I can remember how she thought she was going to change your life and your home environment . But as you already know she didn’t change it but she enhanced it . What a wonderful opportunity to have your mother the length of time that God gave her on this earth . One of my fondest memories of your mother was how she would take the time to make my little sister a lamb cake every Easter for several years. She was a special lady in many many ways. May God bless you and your family and keep you in His care . With sympathy Kathleen and Roger

Mr. Capehart,I do sincerely azoioglpe for calling you a coward. That was unkind of me, and I am not an unkind person. Upon further reflection, I realized that this story has me extremely upset because I feel that our society has taken political correctness to a ridiculous level. I feel very strongly that Ms. Wolfe should have lost her job, as her negative comments about Fox News clearly show her political bias. However, I know firsthand how difficult it is to fire someone these days, even if there is blatant cause, and I personally feel that there is blatant cause in this particular case. I question how Ms. Wolfe can effectively teach this particular class at this point? How can the students in her class rest assured that they will receive fair treatment/critique if they choose to cite Fox news now that she has made her disdain for them known? I understand that it must be very difficult to keep personal political beliefs out of the classroom when teaching a political science class, but there must be SOME effort made to at least appear to be objective, and she clearly did not do that. How must the students who don’t share her same political beliefs feel when they sit in her classroom now? I know that everyone makes mistakes, so I’m not saying she should be fired for making a mistake. I’m simply saying that it is evident (at least to me) that she can no longer be an effective teacher because of her mistake, and that is why I think she needs to go. Anyway, I azoioglpe again for my previous comment and I’m sorry this response is so long! I would be happy to participate in a radio discussion of this issue (and I promise no name calling!)
