Letters to the Editor

The grad mill

Editor: Is there a crime called snookery? If so, our universities should be indicted for it. The taxpayers are burdened with over a trillion dollars in student loans because of these snake oil peddlers. High school graduates who can’t pass English or math proficiency tests or get a loan ...

No More, ever

Editor: April of each year brings together two related awareness campaigns: Victims of Crime and Sexual Assault. The theme for the 2017 Victims of Crime campaign is “Strength, Resilience, Justice.” For Sexual Assault month it is “Engaging New Voices.” Though these two campaigns are ...

A clear picture

Editor: “Ryan a convenient scapegoat for Trump’s failure.” Ridiculous. Many conservative journalists consider the failure of passing the American Health Care Act in the House of Representatives a failure of President Trump’s leadership. (See Jonah Goldberg’s column in your March ...

Feet to the fire

Editor: So, we’re making America great again? Under the Republican health care proposal, 24 million Americans would lose their coverage by 2024, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Seniors and the poor would face much higher insurance premiums, limiting their ability to afford ...

Editor: One bit of information I learned years ago was that history repeats itself. Now it may not be in the exact setting, but if one looks carefully at similarities, we can, as they say, learn from it. I would like to present three scenarios from my childhood and compare them to what we ...

Eco-bums

Editor: No event more graphically illustrates the hypocrisy of the left than the recent protest in North Dakota of the Dakota Access Pipeline Project. Initiated by the Sioux Indians, it attracted radicals funded by George Soros, the Southern Poverty Law Center and MoveOn.org. Most of them ...

No difference

Editor: Since Roe vs. Wade, well over 58 million mothers have aborted. No wait, let’s tell it how it is, over 58 million mothers have murdered their child. An unborn child is not like a caterpillar; it is a beautiful, innocent human being, before and after birth. The only difference ...
