Mark LaFlamme’s “Talk of the Town” column June 1, “The Phoenix has landed,” was the equivalent to being exposed to kryptonite.

What planet is this guy from?

There is not a whole lot of difference between LaFlamme’s journalistic abilities and the literature that is found between the covers of a comic book.

In my opinion, he may have inhaled a little too much moon dust.

I ask myself, why am I so drawn to his persona? I think it must be because opposites attract, and I emphasize the word opposites.

Or, perhaps, it goes back to my childhood fascination with extraterrestrial personalities such as Buck Rogers, Will Robinson and Luke Skywalker. Or others, such as Alf and Mork from Ork.

Now, we have our very own Mark LaFlamme from the Sun Journal.

I, personally, don’t believe there is intelligent life on other planets, but at the same time, I question the intelligence of some of the people who live on planet Earth.

If we are going to probe anything, as his article suggests, maybe we could start with the White House, Congress, the Senate … and let’s not forget LaFlamme’s cubicle.

If, by chance, a scientist discovers a planet that could sustain life, or finds a life form, it would not change the Bible, or the Bible’s proclamation that God is the creator of all things.
