Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-up to all the folks in the Crossroads area who have attended Cuero's Christmas in the Park. If you haven't been to the park, we will be open through Jan. 5 from 6-10 p.m. nightly. Treat yourself and the family to Christmas magic.
Thumbs-down to crime in Victoria. Too many crooks, not enough cops and too much probation.
Thumbs-down to GLAAD, the gay and lesbian group that is protesting the statement by Phil Robertson from "Duck Dynasty" against homosexuals.
What they did is tick off 12-13 million viewers of the show who didn't have an opinion about their gay organization. Now, they do, and so do I!
Freedom of speech, isn't that what they believe in also? A&E is a bunch of cowards!
