One reads with empathy mixed with a measure of disappointment, “NFL Nonsense.. .” by Bill York of Lawrenceville, GA in the May 2018 issue of the Gwinnett Citizen. We are all thankful to Mr. York as well as other members of his family for his military service. His heart-felt reminder of those who gave their last ounce of devotion at Pearl Harbor, the Bataan Death March, Normandy, Iwo Jima, et al to preserve American freedom is much needed and touches us all.

Seeing multi-millionaires run, fall, get up, run, fall, get up ad nauseam with silly high-fives bored me so much I quit watching NFL football.

When the spectacle ends, they climb into luxury cars wearing flashy jewelry, drive to lavish homes, enjoy fine cuisine, dress in designer’s clothing then head out for an evening of convincing their naïve minions what princely legends they will become.

I'm writing to thank Congressman Rob Woodall for voting "Yes" on the most recently passed Omnibus Budget bill.  Certainly, there were things in the bill I did not like, and things I wish could have been included.  And I'm sure the congressman felt the same way.  But there was more good than bad in my opinion.  And there was one particularly important part of the bill that I know the congressman supported.  That was the $414m in increased funding for Alzheimer's disease research.
