Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- Feb. 13, 2014

Respect is a two-way street

I am proud to practise a religion that prescribes the use of incense in meditation. That same religion teaches respect for my fellow man. When I use incense, I make sure to shower and change my clothes so that people who experience scent sensitivities don’t suffer at my expense.

Spiritual uplifting of all kinds should be allowed

So the Brandon School Division is baffled trying to find a way to appease the aboriginal students (and themselves) in regards to the smudging issue. It will allow them to smudge in school for their traditional way of spiritual uplifting. Think about it: What did it take to abolish prayer that gave a similar spiritual uplifting? We should bring back prayer for those who want it. Spiritual uplifting in any traditional form should be openly available for all students. “Spirit is the fuel for learning.”

Looks like animal abuse to me

To the couple on the front page hitchhiking west (Feb. 5), if you want to expose yourselves to this bitter cold weather do so, but not to that dog. I consider that abuse of an animal whether or not you have a blanket for it. You both look healthy enough to get a job, save and then go out west, but you are not responsible enough to own an animal. Shame on you and for our police service to allow this treatment of an animal.

Why no Elvis coverage?

I am very disappointed. I read the Brandon Sun every day faithfully. We came into Brandon from out of town to see the Elvis tribute concert at the WMCA. And it was absolutely fantastic! And there has not been a thing about it in the paper. I kept waiting and waiting, thinking you just didn’t have room. But there was nothing. We were very disappointed. It was a nice thing for us older people around Brandon. We figured it should have had a spot somewhere in the paper. He was really, really good! (Ed. note: Look for coverage of the event in our Saturday Social section in the Feb. 22 edition of the Sun’s Weekend Magazine)
