Merry Christmas

dscn8709This Christmas is one to be especially treasured. We in the United States of America are blessed. This country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and principles. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were grounded in this faith. We celebrate. Freedom of religion is one of those principles.

Around the world, Christians, many Muslims, and others of different faiths are under attack and being killed by radical Islamic terrorists. We need to both pray and fight back with all we have. We are, indeed, in a war of civilizations. Total defeat of radical Islam is the only option. Nothing less is acceptable.

About Kent Blacklidge Ph.D.

As one of a newspaper family who owned a 34,000 daily newspaper in the heart of the Midwest for 85 years, I have a deep belief in a strong “Fourth Estate”, the press. Without a diligent, truthful, and assertive free press, the power would be taken from the people. People have the absolute right to know. After earning a degree in Industrial Management from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue, I spent over 20 years in newspaper management with several as publisher. I also hold three graduate science degrees including a Ph.D.. I have a passionate interest in science, the environment, government, and politics. I have very little tolerance for ignorance and stupidity.
