    WARMINSTER, Pa. -- The leaders of the Republican and Democratic committees in Warminster are calling for the resignation of GOP Supervisor Fred Gold, who sent an e-mail with a photo of a topless woman promoting Jan. 15 as "Breast Appreciation Day."

    The e-mail that accompanied the photo asked, "Beats ... Martin Luther King Day, doesn't it?"

    Democratic chairman Joseph Bowes Jr. and Republican chairman Jim Messina described the e-mail as insulting to women and blacks.

    "It embarrassed the party. It embarrassed me," Messina said.

    Bowes called it "offensive on many levels."

    Gold sent the e-mail from his personal account, and apologized if anyone who received or saw it was offended.

    "I certainly don't think I did anything immoral or unethical," he said. "To resign because of this, I don't think so."

    Oh well, some people just don't seem to want to use any more of their brains than God gave to a goose.

    I know a guy who has a security clearance and runs around bragging that he was a hit man for hell's angels. How long do you think that clearance would last if that little lie got to the NASC?

    They just don't put their brains in gear before they say something or do something.

    Put it in perspective; how many people did this idiot's misbehavior kill?

    Just a thought.

    I have to disagree with him on 3 points.

    1: it was immoral.
    2: it was unethical.
    3: he should resign.

    How some of these dummies get in power is beyond me.

    James,

    He may be a dummy, but at least he kept abreast of current events.

    I guess boys will be boys whether they are GOP supervisors or simply Baptist Board members.
