I am not a big fan of football, but I will be cheering for De’Niro Laster this and every season he plays at the University of Kentucky.
The article about his and his family’s hardships struck me as everything wrong with our society rolled into one story.
When I think of the millions of our tax dollars wasted on pork projects, stupid “studies,” consultations, etc, and the money spent drone bombing innocent civilians, while Laster’s father, trying to provide for his family, was forced to sell marijuana and has to spend time in jail.
Meanwhile, the real criminals in Big Pharma are blanketing the U.S. with their lethal opioids. De’Niro Laster is a hero and a young man worthy of nurturing and support. I wish him every success.
Never miss a local story.
