When the military was pushed into placing women aboard ships it warned the non-military people who were wanting this to occur that while women should be treated as equals placing young women and young men together results in babies…..and guess what. I’m not against women serving. I am for proper safeguards and the military is not capable of providing same. So, we have babies out of wedlock, we have rapes, and now we have open sexuality. Think this isn’t going to cause a problem? I think it is. I have no problem with someone being gay but think this is a bad idea just as I think kicking people out of the service was a bad idea for being gay.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
