Picking and choosing

Posted

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we start to deceive.

Those words seem to resonate more today than ever.

The latest is the federal government’s picking and choosing what laws it wants to enforce.

In case you haven’t heard, the Justice Department has sued Texas over a new state law that bans most abortions arguing it was enacted “in open defiance of the Constitution.”

The lawsuit, filed in Texas federal court, asks a federal judge to declare the law is invalid.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said, “the act is clearly unconstitutional under long-standing Supreme Court precedent.”

The Justice Department argues the law unlawfully infringes on the constitutional rights of women and violates the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution which says federal law supersedes state law.

Funny how liberals want to enforce that law. Yet they turn the other cheek to the fact that federal law forbids marijuana sales but allows Colorado’s state law to supersede federal law.

Another head scratcher.

As you have seen in this space before, Monday holidays wreak havoc on weekly newspapers.

Some of us go ahead and work on Monday holidays so we can get the product out as usual on Wednesday afternoon.

Our entire staff works double time on Tuesday after a Monday holiday so our readers can get the news.

Such was the case this past week when the country celebrated Labor Day.

But all of our hard work goes awry when the post office doesn’t do its part.

We had subscribers from Edmond, Byars, Washington, Norman, Midwest City, Newcastle and Lindsay call to say their newspapers didn’t come in the mail on Thursday.

Some of them received their newspapers on Friday.

Some didn’t

It’s frustrating to say the least.

It’s frustrating not only for us but for our subscribers, as well.

The subscriber in Newcastle reported she got the newspaper the next day along with mail addressed to one of her neighbors.

She wonders who’s getting her mail.
