Letters to the Editor
Thank you for acknowledging Siwon Yu (of Maido) in your cover story about Toki Masabuchi’s success (LEO Weekly, Feb. 5). Siwon was a talented chef, a generous employer, a thoughtful friend and a wonderful man. He is remembered with much love.

Today a federal judge said Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages performed in states that are the slaves of Satan — Iowa, Maine, etc. Immediately, a sinkhole opens at the museum in Bowling Green as God sends the devil to drag many of our precious Corvettes down to hell! That couldn’t be a coincidence, Mr. Smarty-Pants Bill Nye! This is just the beginning. What’s next — a plague of locusts on our tobacco crops or a Democrat for senator? My advice for those who fear God’s divine wrath is to head for the hills and hide out through these dreaded times! The rest of us will tell you when it’s safe to come back. Honest.

Polygamy is Coming!
So now some seriously misguided federal judge has mounted his high horse and ruled that Kentucky must recognize homosexual “marriages” performed in other states. Evidently some people haven’t learned from the past. In a way, weren’t we here a couple thousand years ago? The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly valued homosexual relations. But eventually the people wised up and realized that was a mistake (e.g. Plato condemned homosexual activity), and homosexual activity was again logically deemed unethical and was basically driven underground.
Now, misguided “progressives” are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. (It’s easy to show that all the arguments homosexuals use to try to rationalize homosexual activity are seriously flawed.)
It may surprise you that some colleges like Harvard now have officially recognized student groups devoted to promoting the acceptance of BDSM — sexually deviant bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism. That’s right. If you are a student who gets turned on by smacking people around, some colleges like Harvard now have groups for you! Bizarre. (Are Neanderthals running that school?)
He who has eyes to see, let them see. The “logic” of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant, disordered and irrational society. Polygamy is coming soon. Maybe down the line we’ll see “marriage” between straight and homosexual consenting-adult incestuous people! Whoopee! Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding him/herself. Rome didn’t fall in a day. But it did fall. Let’s not join the race to the bottom.

Zanzabar, She Wrote
I would like to share a recent experience my friend and I had at an outing to a local bar called Zanzabar. We were going to see the band Lady Pyramid at a 9 o’clock show. As we got there and were looking for a parking space, we got stuck in ice. After a few minutes of trying to get out of our predicament, a young African-American man came out of the blue and started pushing our truck and didn’t stop until he was successful. He then took off so fast we didn’t get a chance to thank him or gift him. We hope he sees this letter and remembers the old couple in the little red truck he helped. Thank you so much.
After we parked and went in, the place was packed, no tables available. So one of the members of the band named Anna went out to the patio and got us a couple of chairs. We were enjoying the music, but as people were standing in front of the stage, we could hear but not see the band. Again, out of the blue, a young man came over and told us there was a table they were not using anymore. So we got our coats, hats and belongings and had a very nice table and enjoyed the rest of our evening.
We would like to thank these people as well. What nice young people we have in our city.
