Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. We traveled to West Union, Ohio today where Fr. Ted Kossee of Holy Trinity Church here said he wondered about an American society, with a tremendous nuclear weapons stock pile, that is telling other countries they can’t have the same weapons. (Just prior to the Iraq War last year, I said to an ABC reporter from Toledo: “What if the weapons inspectors were let into, say, Montana? What would they find?”) At the square in West Union, I passed out some flyers and talked to Daniel Williams who said one of his biggest issues is: “…so many of the jobs going overseas.” (Adams County here is one of the poorest counties in the state.) After having our picture taken by the editor of the People’s Defender newspaper here in the shadows of the Court House, we headed to Peebles, Ohio. There a woman said to me that she is adamantly “against abortion.” What’s more, she noted there are some 4,400 abortions a day in the U.S. She said, in reality, this is no different than if people with guns entered four fairly large schools and killed all the students — every day. Given that, she wonders why there isn’t more of an outcry. I wonder that too.
