Well, I’ve been given 130 words this week. So, I’ll just concentrate on two topics.

First, I want to wish all Gazette readers a very Merry Christmas, and a happy and holy celebration. I would also like to encourage everyone to boycott stores who refuse to recognize Christmas; after all, it is a national holiday as well as a celebration of Christ’s birth.


Secondly, we should think about recent remarks from Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai. He no longer trusts the US and has entered into negotiations with the Taliban. America has spent more than a decade lavishing our blood and treasure (one trillion?) to clean out the Taliban and enable girls to attend school and bring Afghanistan into the modern world. We have sacrificed much to help this Muslim country. I hope America has finally learned that we have no friends in any Islamic country and that Israel is our only trustworthy friend.
