Letters: Advertising we can all get behind; a time to celebrate the Culture of Life
Passover and Easter are pro-life reasons to celebrate
The Christian-Judeo time for the celebration of new life and freedom is in many ways a chance to rejoice in the culture of life. Especially in parts of America where we have a renewed dedication to the declaration, unique to Americans, that “all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
In recent years, since 1973, a culture of death has descended on our nation and removed the protection of our right to life as an American child in the womb or adult afflicted with serious and possible terminal illness that some states and insuring agents find cheaper to pay for by physician-assisted suicide.
It would seem we have a wonderful chance these coming days and months to return to the culture of life and follow the example of Christ’s love for all of mankind and imitate His love by protecting his greatest creation, human beings, with good laws and faithful observance of these laws in all of our states in America.
We can as Americans follow the Mosaic escape to freedom and embrace the gift of the Ten Commandments especially “Thou Shall Not Kill.”
These are very troubled times especially for the great gift of freedom that our nation, America is. Our Founding Fathers gave us this wonderful gift. We can use this gift and through work and prayer return to a culture of life.

Good advertising for all
I’d like to put aside political rancor for a moment to congratulate two industry leaders for their great ad campaigns.
GEICO and Liberty Mutual are running the most customer-oriented ad campaigns I’ve ever seen. GEICO begins ads with “I can’t believe it,” while Liberty Mutual has an emu. Both ad campaigns allow the discerning viewer enough time to grab the remote and hit the mute button, saving the viewer from 30 seconds of tired, worn-out old crap. Brilliant!
Democrats! Republicans! Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, atheists! Climate change proponents! Climate change deniers! Everyone! Let’s join hands and celebrate!
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
