The Eagle & Journal is a wonderful read and warms my heart to hear of local tales and all things Coronado. The thing that detracts from it is the continuous regurgitation of anything J.F. Kelly heard on Faux News or from Rush Limbaugh. There are plenty of places I can go to hear divisive rhetoric but I think the Journal should not be a platform for the continued slanted views of Mr. Kelly. Let’s keep the Journal a source of local happenings!

My second comment is regarding the Kathy Prout article. On page 24 a quote from her says “Back in 1972, during the Vietnam War, the military was basically thought of as pond scum.” I applaud her efforts to rectify an injustice by her tireless efforts but I feel the military was never considered pond scum. That was a very unpopular war (as they should all be) and people were being drafted and killed in large numbers. Let’s not forget that part.
