Saddam is Dead – Declare Victory and Leave

Letter to the Editor Now that Saddam has been executed it’s time to declare victory and leave.

I think this is as close to the illusion of […]

Saddam is dead. But what has changed?

Letter to the Editor Does Saddam deserve to die? Of course he does. After all, look at what he’s done. He used chemical weapons against Iraqis. He tortured people at Abu Ghraib.

Nixon Pardon Revisited

Letter to the Editor On the day of President Ford’s death people in the news are praising his decision to pardon Nixon saying that Ford “Healed the nations woulds and brought Americans together after Watergate”.

Do we side with the Sunni or Shiite Muslims?

Letter to the Editor Now that Iraq has degenerated into a civil war, we have to figure out which group to side with. Most Iraqis are Shiite, the the elected president of Iraq is Shiite. Saddam and Osama are both Sunnis. So I guess we side with the Shiites. But – our friends in Saudi […]

Therefore any scientific […]

Reality is in – Faith is out

Letter to the Editor After six years of faith based government reality is making a comeback. For the last six years we were expected to blindly follow the government and do whatever Bush wants.

Republicans still don’t get it

Letter to the Editor Even after the landslide election last month Republicans still don’t get it. Newt Gingrich is proposing what I would call “supervised free speech” as a dinner in honor of the First Amendment. Republicans are still using Bush logic.
