Thumbs-up to everyone involved in the production of Dancing With The Stars Victoria Style. It took one entire summer to prepare for one evening's entertainment.

Thumbs-down to the senseless, cruel murder of the World War II veteran and to the untrue, divisive cartoon on the editorial page of the Victoria Advocate on Aug. 25.
