Mail: Kerrey is outstanding NebraskanTell North Platte what you think

It never fails to amaze me, the people who say that Bob Kerrey is not a Nebraskan because he went to New York and served as a college president.

Many people from Nebraska have left for a no more honorable reason and never came back to Nebraska, but we claim them.

Consider such Nebraskans as Robert Taylor, Clayton Yeutter, Henry Fonda, Willa Cather, marlon Brando, Mari Sandoz, Fred Astaire, Johnny Carson and many others.

None of these were awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor or gave part oftheir physical self for their country -- or served as a very popular governor, or a popular senator who worked across the aisle.

Neither did Bob Kerrey attempt to take something that did not belong to him by adverse possession.
