Question: It’s open forum week. What’s on your mind?

• On Wednesday, driving down the 600 block of North Elm Street, my two little granddaughters started screaming and crying in the back seat. To my horror and disgust, a headless field-dressed deer is hanging spread eagle not six feet from the public sidewalk. Even though it is partially covered in a bloody white sheet (emphasizing the red blood) its four legs are exposed and (there are) nasty plastic buckets sitting around dripping with entrails. I don’t oppose hunting if it is done with respect and responsibility. However, I do oppose thoughtless wanna-be hunters who exercised their rights to hunt without thought or consideration to others. Today is Thursday, and the deer carcass is still hanging there.

• Thanks to Gwen Tolbert for calling attention to Rep. Tiahrt’s poor judgment. Has he not heard the song “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white they are precious in his sight ...”? Someone needs to teach it to his soul.
