Election Season is Here! Do you know the Candidates?


Letter to the Editor: A Little Advice

   Dear Sentinel:

   I have a little advice for the Democrats. Of course, they most likely won't have the infighting because they already know who their candidates are, but...be careful of OPEN MICS!

   Also, do not invite Clint Eastwood. Nice guy, good actor, but changes the script on you!

  And don't be embarrassed about your platform. Hiding it just makes people more leery of you.

   One more thing. If someone pisses off the first lady, keep the cameras off of her. My last impression of Ann Romney is the look on her face after Eastwood finished.
