Authorities are working to identify a man whose body was found in a St. Petersburg canal late Monday night.
Bill E. Bob: Our country has a problem which does not have a red or blue solution. Too many will sue for getting their feelings hurt, or for even having their delicate sensibilities slightly ruffled. Too many feel they are owed something. We came in with nothing, we're going out with nothing. Why would anybody feel that they are owed anything by anybody? A living is earned, as is respect. Speaking of respect, too many are socially crippled by a ridiculous combination of 1) Too much self-esteem, 2) Too little self-respect, and 3) No idea that a difference between the two even exists. Too many, in the name of "diversity," will demand of society accommodations to make up for their own inability or desire to actually be productive members thereof, or to help them showcase their "flavor of the month" difference. Too many will apply a misguided and skewed characteristic of a few to the larger group of similar others, most of whom they've never met. This not only cheapens our society, but it also disables one's ability to love his fellow man. Too many will demand, in the name of equality, that I make a sacrifice so that they might pursue life, liberty, and happiness as they see fit. Until we hear candidates discussing such things with the fervor with which they will discuss weather, bathrooms, or doctors, no change to any of these will actually occur.
