  1. North Cape May - Judging from various, recent spouts, you can observe an obvious generational difference regarding America's role in the modern world, with younger spouters more concerned with getting good jobs and living the good life at home, and the older voters who were raised during the time of facing the communist challenges overseas. It will be interesting to see what the young crowd does when they take over.

  2. Town Bank - Is anyone else wondering about the negatives to the spouts that approve the actions of Arab nations fighting their own battles in their region, instead of expecting the good old USA to sacrifice its own boys and treasure to do the job for them? Would readers voting against this be willing to ship their own sons over to meddle in our world's most chaotic region?

  3. Wildwood - Stop with the cop and firefighter bashing, and especially crying over who is more important or replaceable. If you both do your jobs, which are very different, you are vital to our society. If you are selfish enough to think you are irreplaceable, take a reality check. Public opinion is changing, perhaps for the worst, and for the wrong reasons, and we will have to deal with the consequences, but people honestly believe neither job is difficult. Times are going to get worse. When disasters happen, both services will step to the front while the critics run away.

  4. West Wildwood - My America would be a place where people worked for what they got and earned what they had, not an 'everyone gets a trophy' society where you're rewarded for your mediocrity. Let's get back to encouraging hard work, and stop looking for the easy way out.

  5. North Cape May - With two millennials in my household, I must agree with the young spouter that their generation cares little about what concerns our group, in particular with overseas matters. It is what it is, and the outlook of this group on social issues at home differs vastly from previous age groups. If we were to come back in 50 years, we would never recognize our country.

  6. Stone Harbor - The Herald ran an article describing the benefits of sharing services with Avalon and the two schools. The benefits are big. Read the article, then replace schools with police stations. A Seven Mile police force united in one cause, public safety. Along with it comes tax savings and productivity efficiency. Don't get stuck in the paradigm. The answer is staring us right in the face. We already share the judge, EMT, disaster relief, the CFO and dispatching. If we don't make the right choice, in 10 years we will have a $5 million police substation.

  7. Sea Isle City - I have to question where a spouter was during the late 60s and early 70s if he says, "As a senior citizen, I can't remember a time in our past here where social tensions have been as high as now." Times are not good right now, but we are much better off than we were in 1969. Although we have been at war since 2001, it is being fought by volunteers, not draftees and there is no serious public division over these wars. I haven't noticed any war-related change in daily life in the U.S. Our economy has been worse and racial tensions in the 'civil rights era' were epic.

  8. Cape May - Let's allow the military judicial process to play out with Sgt. Bergdahl, and not join the unlikely death sentence chorus of a certain cable channel. The young man has an expert legal defense team, with the prosecution aware everyone is watching. Taking in mind Obama's prior involvement, the generals will want to end this affair with the least publicity possible.

  9. North Cape May - There should be some sort of crosswalk at Old Mill and Bayshore roads. Kids try to cross the street often and speeding drivers have no concern for the speed limit, human life or rules of the road. Someone is going to get seriously injured, or worse, all for the sake of getting somewhere one minute faster or reading a text.

  10. Cape May - Maybe the courts have it right after all, that requiring all towns in our state to provide affordable housing might lessen the racial divide in our country in the long run. As a senior citizen, I can't remember a time in our past here where social tensions have been as high as now, and I wonder if the TV media, especially, is largely to blame.
