History’s blunders

To the Editor,

History’s great politically motivated blunders and how they went down.

Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar.” Caesar murdered by a group of senators, dying, uttered “Et tu, Brute,” translated “and you too, Brutus,” to his best friend.

Judas pointing to Jesus so the authorities can take him, try him and crucify him for 30 pieces of silver.

Who will be the villainous one in 2014 to try and discredit President Obama with verbage so distasteful and disgraceful that they will be remembered as a Brutus or a Judas? Fox’s Hannity or O’Reilly.

Trying to emulate Fox News style to create discourse and excite the populace with some thoughts to think about.

The city of Weirton is starting to look like it’s in its 100th year after people.

Pope Francis is right when he tries to inspire the world to feed the poor from a humanitarian standpoint.

If the world doesn’t respond, the hungry and starving will grow to a dangerous point of malnutrition. Freaks roaming the landscape, resulting in Hollywood’s speculative fiction movies to come true. Starving zombies roaming the landscape, eating the flesh of other humans.

It happened in America at Donner Pass.

Inferno citation for “Hell” is the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem “Divine Comedy.”

Divine comedy, folks. Get it! Hell’s a comedy of a torturous journey in Dante’s mind, and whatever the recreational drug of the day in the 14th century, Dante was a user and any priest that uses Dante’s name is a Sunday sermon should acknowledge he was a user, not a saint.
