no place in this world
The world must come together in a multilateral effort to neutralize and destroy ISIS — in Syria and Iraq, as well as abroad.
This cannot be a U.S. fight; it must be with our Americas/European allies, Russia, Middle Eastern allies and China. ISIS is a threat to all — a threat to peace, freedom, liberty, equality and most importantly life.
Religious extremism/radicalism deserves no place in this world — no matter the religion and no matter where.
Coca-Cola on Council
I enjoyed the photograph of the early Coca-Cola plant; however, one correction is in order.
The picture shown is the original plant on East Council Street, in the building that was later used as Mickle Tire Co. The plant on South Main Street was finished and operating in 1937 or 1938.
My grandfather was president and general manager for 43 years, retiring in 1948.

I would like to express (belatedly) my appreciation to the Salisbury Post for its excellent Veterans Day front-page stories. Remembering and honoring those who have selflessly sacrificed so much for our country should be among our highest priorities, but it’s often ignored these days. We are forever indebted to those veterans who have engaged in these far-away battlefields, and so the in-depth and excellent coverage here was really inspiring.
Also, my compliments to the Post’s staff for their new project — Salisbury, the Magazine. The stories are interesting, with larger print and adequate spacing (making reading easier), and the full-color large photographs are outstanding. Kudos to all involved. Well done and highly recommended.
