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

Thumbs-up to helpful, courteous people. Last Friday, I had gone to PetSmart to purchase dog food. I put my purchase in the trunk of my car. I then proceeded to Los Reyes. When I arrived, I discovered that I had left my purse in the shopping cart at PetSmart. Needless to say, my heart dropped. I sped back to PetSmart, and the basket was where I left it, no purse. I went into PetSmart and asked if anyone had turned in a lime green handbag. Not expecting anything, I was surprised to find they had it. I want to say thank you to the individual who turned in my purse. This has certainly renewed my faith in people. Thumbs-up to this wonderful individual.

Thumbs-up to liberal former congressman Dennis Kucinich who blamed President Obama's Libya policy for the death of four Americans in Benghazi. Kucinich also said the Obama administration politicized the response to Benghazi because they "were in the circumference of an election, and when you get on the eve of an election, everything becomes political."

Double thumbs-down to the person or persons who stole the flowers from my wife's grave on Mothers Day. You are the lowest of low, and you turned a beautiful tribute into a nightmare. Shame on you for such a terrible act!
