At the Friday Night Social,
Jeb Crowell had the audience in

bl lute ring character who belittles
everybody and everything that isn't
from his own home town.
Well, we can laugh at that sort
of character because from where
I sit, Americans are just the op

exactly the same way we do.
In our town, for instance : Some
folks like band concerts, others
don't some families serve beer
with dinner, others, buttermilk
and as for politics, there's plenty of
But when it comes to denying
folks the right to think or act as
they choose ... no, we're like you
we don't believe in it, whether it
goes for serving beer, or speaking
one's mind on public affairs.
