Wes Dukes: No sackcloth needed

No sackcloth needed

A Nov. 10 writer penned a very depressed and mournful letter about the death of a 230-year-old lady on Nov. 6. I want him to know I felt exactly the same way when this lady passed at age 222 back on Nov. 2, 2004. Also I want him to know I survived and the lady survived, and I firmly believe she will be here well after both he and I pass off this spaceship called Earth.

Peace, my fellow voter. Peace.

D.W. “Wes” Dukes
