Letter: Supports fellow Americans

November 30, 2016 — The talking heads of the Fourth Estate don’t know when to stop talking. First the local papers told us undereducated deplorables how only racists or homophobes or woman haters would vote for the Donald. Then they told us all the polls gave the Donald no […]

Letter: Can’t make sense of Trump

Letter: Things imagined

November 25, 2016 — I think it’s usually a waste of time writing letters to the editor arguing with previous letters to the editor. No one’s mind gets changed and everyone digs in deeper. But I do want to respond Audrey Jane Spaulding’s insightful, brave and touching question. (PI-letters […]
