Time for confession

The Spokesman-Review
 

I’m glad Alexandra Ockey finally confessed her wayward ways (Letters, April 25). How dare a 79-year-old woman admit to being such a threat to society by owning a Smith & Wesson, praying and attending church?

Had I known of her indiscretions, I would have thought twice about sharing lunch with her. However, she took a chance breaking bread with me. I led the flag salute at that same event honoring those dangerous veterans that are stealthily planning to overthrow the country they served.

Since confession is good for the soul, I must admit I also attended an event honoring compassionate women who built a maternity home. Then to top that off, I was given a tour of a shelter housing women and children supported by individuals in Spokane giving of their own limited resources. No taxpayer bailouts.

Recently, the life of Irena Sendler was remembered and honored. This Polish Catholic social worker rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust. Irena paid dearly to the National Socialist Party for her intervention. Nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, Irena lost that award to Al Gore. Was he too big to fail or was it a right-wing conspiracy?
