How rich is rich?

Letter to the Editor There are people out there who don’t think that people making over $250,000 a year are rich. That’s over $20,000 a month. That’s like a person who works 40 hours a week making $120/hour. Most people making over $250,000 a year don’t pay as high of a tax rate as the […]

Using Jesus to make political points

Letter to the Editor It’s interesting to see Republicans running ads against the recovery act saying that if we spent a million dollars a day since Jesus was born that it would be less spending than what Obama is spending. The same argument would apply to the Iraq war or the tax cuts for the […]
