 NOW, WE’LL MOVE FROM A REMARKABLE WOMAN IN HISTORY – TO SOME REMARKABLE THOUGHTS ABOUT LAST WEEK’S SHOW. LET’S OPEN UP OUR INBOX!
 
EVELYN FROM SAINT PETER SCHOOL EXPLAINED WHY SHE VOTED TO GET RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IN LAST WEEK’S POLL:   
 
I VOTED YES, WE SHOULD GET RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE AND LET THE VOTERS CHOOSE THEIR CANDIDATE DIRECTLY. I FEEL THAT THIS MAKES SURE THAT WE HAVE OUR OWN VOTES. MOST OTHER COUNTRIES THAT HAVE ELECTIONS VOTE THIS WAY SO WE SHOULD TOO.
 
RYAN FROM JACKSON INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL AGREED:
 
I VOTED YES BECAUSE IT’S NOT FAIR IF SOMEONE ELSE GOT TO BE PRESIDENT AND THEY HAD LESS VOTES. I THINK THAT WHOEVER GOT THE MOST VOTES SHOULD BE PRESIDENT.
 
GAVIN FROM NEW BREMAN SCHOOLS DISAGREED:
 
I VOTED NO FOR GETTING RID OF ELECTORAL COLLEGES BECAUSE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS MADE IT AND WE SHOULD BE LOYAL TO THEM.  
 
NICOLE FROM MARYLAND ELEMENTARY WROTE TO US ABOUT LAST WEEK’S BUG STORIES:
 
MOST OF THE TIME, I LIKE TO STAY AWAY FROM BUGS. BUT SOMETIMES, I LIKE TO LOOK UP INFORMATION ABOUT THEM BECAUSE I LIKE TO STUDY THEM UP CLOSE. MY LEAST FAVORITE PART ABOUT BUGS ARE THEIR LEGS. A BUG'S LEGS ARE SO THIN THAT I THINK IT'S PRETTY AMAZING THAT THEY DON'T BREAK.  
 
CARLTON FROM CLAGGETT MIDDLE SCHOOL WROTE TO US ABOUT LAST WEEK’S PUMPKIN CARVER SEGMENT:
 
I THOUGHT THAT THE PUMPKIN STORY WAS AWESOME-JUST LIKE YOU GUYS! THE PUMPKIN FACES ARE SO COOL AND REALISTIC. I THINK THAT THE GUY IS A REALLY GOOD ARTIST SINCE HE COULD DO ALL THAT. IT REALLY SURPRISED ME THAT MOST OF ALL THAT WORK WAS ONLY DONE WITH A SCRAPER. IF I COULD MAKE MY OWN PUMPKIN LIKE THAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE THIS: [PICTURE]
 
WOW, THAT’S A REALLY SPOOKY PUMPKIN, CARLTON! THANKS FOR SHARING. AND THANKS ALSO TO EVELYN, RYAN, GAVIN, AND NICOLE FOR SHARING YOUR BRILLIANT THOUGHTS WITH US THIS WEEK!
