Letter to the Editor

Terrorist UFOs?

Monday, September 21, 2009

Dear Editor,

Several days ago I saw some huge things floating in the air over my house.

What were they? They could have been communists or terrorists.

In the best interest of democracy, I urge all citizens to shoot at all unidentified flying objects over your legally owned trash. If not, the enemy could attack, invade and occupy.

Steve Stramel,

  • I can't believe this makes its way on the opinion page, comics perhaps, but definitely not opinion.

  • Hey Chunky and Trannie,

    Get a life. Tongue in cheek joshin' is a High Plains tradition.

    You boys are takin' yourselves way too seriously.

    Steve, would we be correct in suspicioning them there UFO's might have been flying garbage bags?

  • Although I understand the importance of shooting UFOs and terrorists, this would only serve as a tool for gun control lobbyists to shut down the 2nd amendment. After all, the liberal left never understands the importance of keeping our trash safe from Al-Qaeda.

  • Dear McCook Gazette,

    Please don't publish letters such as this. Other states already look at nebraska as a bunch of dumb gun-toting hicks and this letter just helps them solidify their judgement.
