first of all, i have nothing against the lighthouses or the SOSCL charity. everybody loves to believe in a great cause. that just is not MY great cause. i did not mean to poke fun at the lighthouses the way some people took it. it was in fun. people on here support the special olympics as do i. we have all seen the picture of the little ones running with different heads. i do believe the quote is something like... even if you win you are still retarted. i'm sorry i saw that and knew it was a joke. not in good humor, but i took it for what it was. sea gull crap stand, is a joke. not hurting anyone. but poking fun at children that are handicapped, thats funny? there are many other times we have picked on charities, including feeding the hungry, homeless and those in third world countries. the comments here were taken as lightly as the next. i do not feel that my thread should have been erased, or any other for that matter. it was not dirty, violent or obscene in any way. it was my opinion that peoples safety should come first, reguarding a new light at the middle channel to mark the sand island better. i know many who have hit it not only leaving the channel at night but in the middle of the day. this causes lots of damage to boats and some injuries when impacting the sand at good speed. i read about all the charities and i have been to every one so far that lscn has put on. i give everytime. someone here has called me about every name in the book tonight, with out even knowing who i am. i never met this person. you don't know me. i am at tnt's every week, was at the bowling charity at salt river, i was at the drink a thon and payed cbj for his efforts, brought a toy to gino's, ready to wrap a HCN and am set up for Jack's christmas party. i have been to all these things and never met you. were you there? if not please do not call me those names because i do not happen to care as much as you do for an old light tower. i happen to care for people a little more.
