Time for residents to grow up

Letter to the Editor.

The concordance in my old King James Version Bible lists

six references to the word “ass”: a common animal.

As children in Sunday school, we would titter (tee hee) when

we read that Samson slew a thousand men with the jawbone of an

ass, or that Jesus rode into Jerusalem “sitting on an ass.” We grew up.

I suggest that those who are offended by the espresso

bar’s name do the same. Teach your children that there are other

meanings to the word. The “big bad world” can teach us many

things, and not all of them bad.
