Re: “Thousands of Absentee and Provisional Ballots Will be Tossed Out Next Month. Here's Why, and How to Avoid It

It seems to me that these two shouldn't complain, since they can't even follow a few simple instructions. The ballot and envelope with different names? And then 1 of 5 fields on the ballot envelope blank? I'd reject it too, no matter what kind of explanatory note was included.

Thank the Bible-thumping mofos in Columbus for making North Missitucky great again.
If there's a new way to screw things up, this state will find it.

Re: “Help Wanted: The next generation of nannies for the super-rich

Ms. Rab,
Your article on the English Nanny & Governess School in May of 2008 was nicely done. As a former 1995 graduate of the school, I enjoyed reading it. I much enjoyed the school and my successful placement with one of their clients in Westchester County, NY - a professional, kind and compassionate, Hindu family with three wonderful children.

I am very grateful to the school for the professionalism they instilled in me and my classmates. It was a wonderful experience and led to a ten plus career as a Certified Professional Nanny. Mrs. Roth was very kind and soft spoken. To this day, I still remember her picking me up at the Cleveland airport when I flew in and taking me to the off campus apartment complex where the other students and I would be staying. I begged her not to get my luggage out of her trunk as I could do it, but she wouldn't hear of it. Very pleasant women.

I have researched "nanny" history and came across a book, although I don't remember neither the title nor the author, which detailed the true lives of a few European nannies. One was British and was placed with either an East Indian or Middle Eastern family. the young women had to wear the local cultural attire as part of her work. The book chronicled nannies from the 18th and 19th century. A very interesting and informative read. It shed light on how babysitters were considered for the poor and nannies were for the wealthy. One interesting note according to the author was that the nannies sometimes came out of the farming communities. An amazing history that we modern nannies came from!

Thank you again for the walk down "memory lane."

Unmentioned in this piece is how the Republican State Legislature knows innately that any level of complication fuels the apathy they feast on.

All Federal offices should be distracted and managed by the federal government under an additional Voting Rights Act that bans gerrymandering, among other updates.

Re: “Father Under Fire: A Westlake Church Rallies Around its Pastor After Charges that He Sexually Abused His Adopted Daughter

I was extremely troubled when I heard these allegations for several reasons. 1) I attended this church for several years and was involved in ministry there as well. Even in that time frame there were multiple allegations about other similar sexual matters that came up and many people left the church over that. 2) I had children involved there as well but they were small at the time. 3) The fact that there was victim blaming going on absolutely boggles my mind. All the signs this girl portrayed pointed to possible sexual abuse but instead of recognizing that people double down to hold to their confirmation bias that this man "couldn't possibly be guilty". People don't like to be wrong when they've invested so much into a belief.

When I read the episode from Paul's sermon upon his return that Sunday i was sickened. If he truly was guilty (and he did plead guilty to lesser charge) and he fixed himself as the victim here, he deserves to have the full arm of the law extended.

I hope the adopted daughter gets the help she needs to work through this and come out healthy on the other side.

This country has a problem with too many voters. We should make it harder to vote, and maybe the natural selection process will bring a better class of candidate. Clearly, the current system is not working, except maybe at the local level where fewer people vote because the idiocrats who vote can't bother to finish the ballot choices for local elections. Can the choice for President get much worse: an imbecile or an incompetent, corrupt , liar?

Common sense and customer service would eliminate this ridiculousness.

Re: “My Weekend at a Northeast Ohio Nudist Camp

I have driven past the GV sign often. I have tried to get my wife to go with me to Green Valley, but due to her job, she doesn't want to run into anyone that she may know. That just doesn't make sense to me, as they would both be there enjoying their nudity. As a result we drive the 90 minutes +/- to White Thorn Lodge, in Darlington, PA. One day we'll make the 15 minute drive to GV!
