My level of disgust coupled with my frequent trips to the restroom to vomit are keeping me from saying much else at this time. It's events like this that makes me rethink my pro-life position.

Planning under way for Obama holiday

Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation's 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

"Yes We Can" planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald's restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama's honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.

At 7:30 a.m. on Inauguration Day, Obama Cake will be served at the downtown McDonald's, and a celebration is scheduled for 8 p.m. to midnight Jan. 20 at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, 420 S.E. 6th.

For more information, contact Sonny Scroggins, (785) 232-3761, 845-6148 or at; Lamont Lassiter, McDonald's general manager, 608-2739; Ava Chander-Beard, (785) 234-9138,; or Rhoda Carr, (785) 220-5883.

OMFG...Give me a break already!! The man is not even in office yet, and he certainly didn't do anything of merit for a day to be set aside in his honor. Don't his followers have anything better to do??

They can honor him during Black History month or on President's Day...He has done nothing worthwhile enough to warrant his own "special" day!!!!
