Woman's words not a threat

November 12, 2012 

Don't you guys have better stories for the headlines than "Obama threat gets woman fired" (Friday, Page A-1) and then another story Saturday? I'd be ashamed.

The so-called "n-word" has been used by every person on the face of the Earth. Yes, even you. Heck, they even call themselves that on national TV.

Show me where she threatened this guy. I believe it said, maybe he will get assassinated this term! Really, does that sound like a threat?

Nowhere does it say that she is going to hurt him. I feel that you owe her an "I'm sorry." To me she did nothing wrong, just something we've all done during our lifetime.
