It’s time to hold police accountable
May 29, 2015
Enough is enough! It’s time to establish and improve conspicuous eccentricity of police officers in the United States through a citizen oversight committee that will mandate the highest ethical standards in police organizations that oversee law enforcement.
Remember heroism of WWII veterans
May 29, 2015
My wife and I care for her brother in our home. He is 92 and a World War II veteran who was at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, landed at Normandy on June 9 and fought in Europe.
Don’t let Buffett kill solar progress
May 28, 2015
Regarding solar, Brian Greenspun said in the column “How about some power to the people?” (Las Vegas Sun, May 17), “I know the answer. It is money.”
Societal parenting does children no favors
May 28, 2015
I couldn’t agree more with George Will’s column “In childhood, risk is inherent — and many are stuck in it” (Las Vegas Sun, May 18), wherein he reflects upon and laments the state of contemporary child-rearing and the bureaucratic interference when Maryland children, who were walking home from school by themselves with their parents’ permission, were whisked off the street by police and turned over to Child Protective Services for their safety.
Jeb Bush’s mistake mirrors his father’s
May 28, 2015
Ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has backtracked on his Iraq remarks made May 10 in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. Bush said he would have authorized the 2003 invasion of Iraq, as his brother and then-President George W. Bush did.
Desalination could have averted crisis
May 28, 2015
The old axiom “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” could have been a better title for Brian Greenspun’s column “How about some power to the people?” (Las Vegas Sun, May 17).
American Lung Association is oddly silent on legal marijuana
May 27, 2015
Legalizing recreational marijuana is on the horizon in Nevada, and the American Lung Association is MIA.
Eliminate jealousy as basis for taxation
May 27, 2015
The IRS has the unenviable job of collecting taxes according to an obsolete tax code.
Bullies are obscuring the net metering issue
May 27, 2015
In criticizing the correct letter to the editor on net metering (“NV Energy should embrace roof solar,” Las Vegas Sun, April 21), another letter writer clouds the issue.
Money spent on Iraq War should go to Social Security
May 24, 2015
Some information I came across: One-quarter of the Iraq War budget would have fixed Social Security for the next 75 years. Get it, people?
GOP again blocks progress in America
May 24, 2015
The Party of No is now the Party of No Good for America! Just this week, they blocked bills on train safety and defense authorization.
Lawbreaking Bundy doesn’t deserve coverage
May 24, 2015
I would expect the Republican-Journal to continue to give publicity Cliven Bundy, a lawbreaker, but the Las Vegas Sun? How disappointing.
Situation in Baltimore shows liberalism’s failure
May 23, 2015
Progressive liberalism is destroying the fabric of our once-great nation, and progressive liberals refuse to acknowledge that their grand societal experiment has been a miserable failure.
Sportsman of the Decade: Pacquiao
May 23, 2015
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao (and their teams) are playing a beautiful, fruitful game. But I suspect the finer of the two, Pacquiao, may have achieved a very high level of true sportsmanship by not postponing the “fight of the century” because of his right shoulder problem.
Art spending the result of egos run amok
May 21, 2015
When I read about the insane egos of today’s billionaires, I feel a great need to criticize their thinking and priorities.
