To that end, there were 34 comments about the issue on our Facebook page, another 13 who shared the story and 66 others who liked the post.
But it’s the comments that tell the striking story. We’ve decided to offer a look at those comments.
Whichever side you are on, you must admit that reading this stuff is pure entertainment.
