Thank you, David Cook, for your insightful article. The showmanship certainly does not seem Christlike. Baal, golden calf come to mind.
Thank you, David Cook, for pointing out some real problems with the NRA. I knew it would create a firestorm with those who cannot look at the issue, but can (and usually do) resort to name-calling and bogus accusations. The rabid NRA supporters appeal to people's lower character traits and fears. And calling people liberal and progressive is so lame.
To these people I suggest you look up the words and see if you and everyone else should not try to strive for the ideals these terms imply. But then maybe you are the opposite--you think?
Mr. Cook, I look forward to your articles and this one is tops. What compassion and wisdom! Thank you.
Thanks for pointing out a real problem in this community. We need diversity in government and that includes gender, race, religion and age.
This was a terrific article, as usual. I look so forward to reading your columns. They always make me think, reflect, and try to find my better self. And often they are passed around among my friends and family. Thank you.
Because of articles like this, I continue to subscribe to the Times Free Press. This should make all of us more conscious of our prejudices. I thank you, Mr. Cook, for stating the truth and stating it well.
