Evelyn Seay was a saint.
The date: January 30, 1942 during World War 2, nearly two months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.
Roy Rogers was the good guy who wore the white hat.
About a month ago, I had the pleasure of serving as one of the Career Day guest speakers at French Camp School.
I'm supposed to be angry as I go to the polls today.
