Objects to liquor, beer in capsule



I was present for the time capsule dedication at the Sacred Heart Cultural Center. We were putting items in the capsule that were to reflect our culture and what was important to us, and I was proud to be a part of the ceremony. But when I got home and watched it on television, they showed the contents of the capsule and, to my amazement, someone had put in a bottle of Jack Daniels liquor and a Budweiser.

Before you say it, I'm not a religious nut. But to put those items in a time capsule to reflect our lifestyles, I don't find that appropriate (and it's a little "redneck," to tell the truth). But we are in the South. So here's to you, Bubba!
