STUPIDEST. LETTER. EVER.

Congratulations, Gerald Telford of Springfield. Your letter in Saturday's News-Leader is a keeper. Only you could take the issue of minors in bars and torque it into something so freakish:
Do the 18-year-olds think their parents want them to get a degree in alcoholism, and is that how their parents want their money spent? If the city allows underage drinking, tragic car accidents could hurt or kill innocent persons.

While they're at it, they might as well change the name from Springfield to Sinfield.
The city's not "allowing" underage drinking, of course, and Telford seems to foolishly believe that only people under 21 can kill people in drunken-driving wrecks (notice he calls them "accidents" -- oopsie!).

But it's the "Sinfield" line that splits our gut. If things here are so bad, perhaps Telford should consider packing his things and moving east to a more hospitable climate.

maybe he meant change Springfield to "Seinfeld"? That would get Jerry here a lot more I bet.

If you think kids ought to be in bars then your a sinner and going to hell, too.

A possessive sinner???

Well, I have seen her. I don't blame you.

Yes, anonymous. But at least Ron knows the difference between "you're" and "your." So he's a properly educated sinner. And he signs his posts rather than hiding like a whiny ass titty baby.

Ahem, 18 year old people are not "kids."

Ahem, yeah they are. Unless they're needed to fight a war.

Hell, if they're changing the name to Sinfield then I'm moving back!
