  • Letter: Logic questioned on banning guns

    Every time someone is shot and killed, there is a hue and cry to ban guns. But no one ever says anything about banning liquor when someone is killed by a drunk driver.

    My classmates in the Lancaster High School class of 1946 held a reunion lunch at the Wagon Wheel Restaurant on Dec. 9.

    At our class reunion 71 years later, they still looked very attractive, and even the men didn't look like age had affected them much. Maybe their mustaches had grown a bit since '46.
