Letter to the Editor

[Belmont University President] Bob Fisher has shown a real lack of leadership throughout this incident over the last two months. In fact, he's shown a sort of spinelessness that has diminished his standing in this community.

And his comments about Belmont's board being "my board" show he's really detached from reality. They are not his board. He is their president, hired and retained at their discretion.

you failed to finish your sentence in your 3:11 post where you posted : "Yogi's are rumor, nightmares, maybe just senile rants, NO fact, NO proof." You should have finished it with NO sh..

Bfra, I never graded their rants based on content, I based it on annoyance.

Either can take any mundane subject and tie it to their rants. And once they get going, there's not stopping. That's annoying, don't you think?

I don't read either when they get going because I don't care. Neither subject interests me and I think they both exaggerate and obsess a little too much.

That is what Darge was pointing out, and that's what I agree with.

he has to lead the college in academic excellence and expansion, which he seems to have done well. his job is not to mediate in affairs of sexuality.

Another issue seems to have been brought up on the 'homo' subject. If you want a passport it would be best to apply before February when this new issue takes place. It seems they now want to know your "parent one" and "parent two" instead of your mother and father.

Yogi i'll miss jeff fisher. He's been a good coach.

What if you don't know either parent? Can you still get a passport?

Don't know, budlight. I ain't goin' no where. I would presume you could just put a name in the slot and the government would accept it. They accept an illegal for the POTUS don't they?

And you wonder why people don’t take you seriously.

Sorry to be late getting back to your question, revo-lou, but I've been a little occupied.

To simply answer your question, revo-lou; No, I don't wonder why you people don't take me seriously. I feel if you knew what I know you would understand what I am saying. But because you don't know, you simply don't want to acknowledge another person's knowledge.

I can only wish I was as brilliant as you seem to think you are. How about passing some of that brilliance on to me.
