Hey everybody, I've been kind'a watching these posts from afar (Wilmer, AL). I am a 1971 graduate of Sayville High School, so I think I can add my own comments. To SS Trash your last post was the first one that wasn't hateful and you should be commended for that. But really, you weren't there when all these events happened (were you?) so cut the lady some slack. In fact walk a mile in her shoes and see how it feels. Ms. Barbara Turtel, I think you could have over reacted to SS Trash's callous comments. It' real easy to lash out when you feel hurt but it doesn't help anything at all and it probably serves to make you madder. Mr. Bonner made a statement and you would do well to look at it again, and also SS Trash has apparently extended the "olive branch". You should respond in kind. And now y'all can tell me to mind my own business etc., well, it's not gonna happen as long as I read about people tearing each other up for no reason. Merry Christmas to everyone and a Blessed Happy New Year.
