Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable.

Fellas...it hit 108 degrees here today...whew!!

Never-the-less, I am putting my xmas gift, an original Weber kettle to its first use...some smoked T-bones -- 2 inches thick each! I doubt either of us could even come close to eating them in one sitting...but I don't mind...when its smoked T-Bone steak.

Well I better go check and see how Weber is doing.

Oh, and I have no idea who this bigfatguyreturns is. He does sound like quite the interesting fella. Was he really as charismatic and captivating as Charlie Manson?

You must have been really enthralled with this person for him to have made such a lasting impression. You think about him at night when you're alone huh? I'm flattered to be mistaken for such an impressive man.
