YourTurn - 3/12/07

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Donnie McClain from Charleston:
"Hollywood, wake up and smell the coffee!  You should never get politically involved in anything.  Celebrities are just like any business persons...they have fans...that buy tickets (who) may be on the other side of the issues they are promoting.  (You) are cutting your own throat and don't have sense to know it."
Martha Thompson from Jackson:
"Having a sister who committed suicide, I didn't care for the (General Motors) robot commercial...someone who is mentally ill could be pushed over the edge...shame on GM, they can do better!"
Leroy Hill from Carbondale:
"How about some real news?  Who cares who lost weight, who shaved her head, or who's the baby's father?  I think there are more important world and political issues and the truth would be nice."
Elmer Brownlee from Jackson:
"(Mike Smythe should) work on death row for about three months...and suffer an assault from some of these animals and then see what (he) thinks about capital punishment."
 Sharon R. Carpenter from Corning, Arkansas:
"About the law that would require all Missouri students to visit a correctional facility...I disagree...I am a Sunday School teacher who has a class full of kids whose parents are in and out of jail...I have watched kid after kid follow after their parents' choices even though they have grown up watching their parents go through this system time and time again."
