Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to the Advocate writer who brought us the story and photo: “Just a Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down.” I really enjoyed this story!

Also, thumbs-up to the Texas Zoo staff for helping the zebra overcome its fear of needles and for all the good work they do with the animals.

Thumbs-up to the city of Victoria for the Bootfest. It was great! It was something for the whole family to do, and it was free. Looking forward to the next year.

Thumbs-down to the current president for reversing the policy and allowing elephant trophies to be brought into our country.

Thumbs-down to Superbody Works for closing with a note on the door. No explanation or thank you – just our contracts.

Thumbs-down to the left-wing news media lies. Revelations 22:15, “Outside are dogs and sorcerers and immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices lies.” Misinformation is lying.
