Honor Rivers with laughter
Sept. 15, 2014
I learned from the death of Robin Williams that the best way to remember the passing of a comedian is not with a customary “moment of silence” because the worst thing a comic can hear is nothing.
U.S. should abolish the death penalty
Sept. 15, 2014
No one is justified in taking a human life, except in self-defense.
Maybe Bush could advise on Iraq
Sept. 14, 2014
Considering all the experience that George W. Bush has gained in Iraq, I propose that President Barack Obama appoint Bush as an adviser with the title of chief White House strategist for Iraq.
Don’t judge all casinos the same
Sept. 14, 2014
The headline of the Aug. 31 letter “Something missing at casinos today” actually should have been “A bad day at Santa Fe Station.”
Sept. 11 attacks are incomparable
Sept. 14, 2014
I agree with the writer of the Sept. 4 letter “Remember another Sept. 11 tragedy” that the Mountain Meadows Massacre was a tragic event culminating in a great number of murdered civilians. But please be fair.
Wrong approach on gun safety
Sept. 13, 2014
The writer of the Aug. 24 letter “Will NRA back this plan?” compares guns to autos and suggests steps to improve gun safety. He advocates yearly gun registration and payment of a tax, like with autos.
Military-industrial complex’s money
Sept. 13, 2014
Those who want to know why the police are being militarized need only follow the money and it will become clear.
Columbia River could help region
Sept. 12, 2014
The drought in Western states is arguably the worst threat our country currently faces. We need to take action!
Voting barriers in red states
Sept. 12, 2014
The Supreme Court took away the last protection blacks had through the Voting Right Act. In a historically biased decision, the Supreme Court, with its majority appointed by Republican presidents, told the areas with a history of discrimination that is was now OK to practice those same discriminatory practices that had been illegal since 1965.
Why no coverage of incident?
Sept. 11, 2014
Will someone please tell us what happened sometime around 6 p.m. Aug. 29 to draw a huge mob of people (and police) in front of Boulder Station, enough to nearly close down northbound Boulder Highway traffic to one slow-moving lane. Why was it not considered newsworthy by any of the media?
Promises need to be kept
Sept. 11, 2014
National Grandparents Day was Sunday, and our elected officials can honor older Americans best by helping to protect the earned health care and pension benefits we retirees worked for throughout our careers and which saved companies much cash in salary and wages to allow them to grow to where they are today.
Memories of the late Joan Rivers
Sept. 10, 2014
Joan Rivers was not only my favorite comedienne of all, but she was also one of my favorite talk show hostesses.
Whose will? Not the people’s
Sept. 10, 2014
Apparently, President Barack Obama has decided to delay his latest executive action on immigration amnesty until “after the midterm elections.” This is to delay backlash in the hopes it will give some cover for some Democrat senatorial candidates in close races.
Costs of minimum wage increase
Sept. 10, 2014
What if the SEIU got its way and were able to force a $15-an-hour minimum wage on fast-food restaurants?
A return to the worst of the worst
Sept. 9, 2014
Years ago, territories such as the Ukraine and a few others could not wait to be free of Russia. They had a very good reason …
