Congratulations, Joe. I will miss your columns. You were one of the brightest lights at the Vindy. I knew you were someone special when you confessed Mike Royko was your idol. You must have gone to a good liberal arts college because you have a wide store of knowledge. Who else would refer to John Calvin and the Reformation In a sports column? Best of luck to you and your young family.

It is pointless to argue whether the atomic bomb attacks on the civilian populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified. It is a fait accompli. Instead we should be working towards banning all nuclear weapons through diplomatic negotiations with all the current nuclear powers: China, India, Pakistan, Israel, Russia, France, the United Kingdom and of course the United States. How can we tell Iran it cannot have a nuclear weapon when it is surrounded by nuclear powers? It is interesting that both Truman and Nixon were urged by some in the military to use nuclear weapons in Korea and Vietnam respectively; both said no.

A year from now we will still be talking about Youngstown's failing schoolls. The system is descending into a malestrom.

How about the state theatre? The facade of that building stilll stands unfinished after promises to restore it. Promises, promises. Youngstown's motto.

As Kasich's inspiration, he can look to these nondescript Ohio presidents: Benjamin Harrison, a one termer; Garfield, assassinated; Taft, too fat for the White House bathtub; McKinley, assassinated; and Harding, corrupt and a philanderer,

"Mr. Excitement" hasn't got a chance of winning the GOP nomination. No one will notice him in the gang of 16 and counting.

Governor Kasich will never stand out among the GOP candidates for president because he is so bland. He, like Woody Allen’s Zelig, blends in so completely he is hardly noticeable. He is Mr. Bland. He has a plain, face that you would never recognize in a crowd; he speaks in plain, bland Ohio cadences;and his uninspired speeches are delivered with all the excitement of a chess game commentator. No, Mr. Kasich is no match for the likes of Trump, Cruz, Walker, Huckabee, Perry, JEB, or even Lindsey Graham. Hillary would positively annihilate him in the general election.
