Nonunion workers get same benefits
March 25, 2015
I worked in the Postal Service for 34 years and had many positions — postmaster, supervisor, shop steward, grievance procedures, arbitrations, union meetings and conventions. I’ve never heard of nor seen any …
Should DMV really arm its staff?
March 24, 2015
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles feels it needs to arm its locations with military-grade assault weapons to defend itself from a problem of its own creation.
Sun provides ‘other side of the story’
March 24, 2015
n the March 17 letter to the Sun “Offer a balanced picture in the Sun,” the letter writer asked that the Sun practice “tit-for-tat” reporting. I moved to Las Vegas 15 years ago and have relied on the Sun to provide the other side of the political scene because the competing newspaper in Las Vegas is totally one-sided.
Senators didn’t lie in their letter
March 24, 2015
Although I admit to being a 74-year-old, retired military Republican, I’m also fairly independently minded. I even enjoy reading the Sun. Brian Greenspun’s column “Letter not only sabotages Obama, it harms US” (Las Vegas Sun, March 15), however, leaves me scratching my head.
The antics of 47 GOP senators
March 22, 2015
Brainchild Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, author of the 47 GOP senators’ treason letter, said on “Face the Nation” that Iran now controls Tehran, and soon Bagdad? Really, Tom, they control their own capital?
Twisted logic abounds
March 22, 2015
There is a twisted logic expressed by some people who call themselves conservative.
Robinson shows his cards in column
March 22, 2015
One statement in Eugene Robinson’s column “Nuggets of realism amid Bibi’s bluster” (Las Vegas Sun, March 11) underscores the reality of his worldview.
Be fair in dealing with immigration
March 21, 2015
Illegal immigrants come in many different forms. If we decide to clean up our illegal immigration scene, let’s be fair.
Did Bush invade the wrong country?
March 21, 2015
On Jan. 29, 2002, President George W. Bush, in his State of the Union address, used the term “axis of evil” to describe Iran, Iraq and North Korea. Bush went on to say that these three countries were trying to build nuclear weapons. In 2003, Bush launched the invasion of Iraq, searching for weapons of mass destruction (WMDs); none were ever found. The Iraq war went on to be one of the worst military decisions in the history of our country, and even today the Iraq war rages on.
The Republican race to the bottom
March 20, 2015
There is a disturbing similarity between Nevada and Wisconsin. While Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker makes no bones about his hatred of unions, here in Nevada our governor isn’t quite so blatant. Nevertheless, the Republican-controlled Legislature is wasting no time attacking unions, and Gov. Brian Sandoval continues to support measures detrimental to middle-class workers.
Halt contract for Animal Foundation
March 20, 2015
It is ludicrous to award any entity a 20-year contract. What is the motivation for the Animal Foundation to improve during years one through 19?
Punishment was not harsh enough
March 20, 2015
In reference to the letter “Does punishment fit the crime?” (Las Vegas Sun, March 3): Seriously? The man committed fraud. The woman and her accomplice set out to burn down the pet store knowing there were 26 puppies and two adult dogs inside. She didn’t care that those defenseless animals would all die; that is murder in my book, and her punishment wasn’t harsh enough!
Encourage efforts to preserve lands
March 19, 2015
While we celebrate the amazing achievement realized late last year with the designation of Tule Springs Fossil Beds as a national monument, we must remember we …
Don’t be afraid of impending doom
March 19, 2015
It is somewhat disconcerting to note that, as evidenced by the letter “US unprepared for radical Islamism” (Las Vegas Sun, March 12), some people use special vision and knowledge to warn all of us to …
Dotty’s doesn’t follow the rules
March 19, 2015
Dotty’s believes it does not have to follow gaming rules, and that is unfair to other local bars that have video slots. Saying you will do whatever it takes to comply with state regulations and then …
