A southern view of symbols
Marge Kaptonak makes remarks about the Confederate battle flag to which I take strong exception ("What visible symbols mean," Oct. 30 Telegram). First, probably unknown to her is the fact that it is the battle flag, not the national flag of the Confederacy, and therein is part of...

Reject candidates who divide
During the most violent divide in our nation’s history, President Lincoln appealed to “the better angels of our nature.” Today, the worst of our nature has been unleashed, and the violence and divisions among us threatens the necessary civility for a democratic society. Last...

What I fear
I do not fear new immigrants or mobs of liberals protesting. I fear white-collar criminals who profit on the backs of ordinary citizens. I fear the loopholes in our laws that allow the most fortunate among us to get away without paying income taxes. I fear the deterioration of moral...

Vote to make a difference
I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to my wife, my two daughters, my granddaughter and any and all women who would happen to read this. I happen to be a member of the current ruling class in America: old white men. Somehow, under our watch, we have handed you a country...

Could it happen here?
Dear editor, The swift, shocking political events of the past two years got me thinking about a time shortly after World War II when our elders emphatically warned us about the dangers to our democracy posed by the political left. The looming specter of worldwide communism was obvious....

A tip for plastic bottles
Here's an idea that might help everyone. Buy 100 percent fruit juice. Put it in a plastic bottle that can be frozen. Keep all your plastic bottles that you wash out. Buy plastic bottles for babies, children, another bigger bottle for toddlers, a bottle for 3- to 6-year-olds, a bottle...

Vote to help shape America
This November, each American will have an opportunity to shape America by voting. Do you want an America that believes citizens have no value unless they have a college education, that demeans successful people and believes the government has a right to confiscate some of their wealth?...

Voting is worth the sacrifice
As a person that has lived 70 years on this planet, I miss the earlier days of media. In the past, news was sometimes brought on sometimes as breaking then checked against sources for accuracy. Otherwise it had already been fact checked by the news staff. The political ads were more...

Duffy not good for environment
Except for occasionally noting it's colder in our part of the world this week or that month, erroneously conflating weather with climate, it appears Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Weston, not have a definitive position on the issue of climate change. I recently asked a home office aide if Congressman...

What planet is Duffy leaving his kids?
As the 2018 midterm election approaches, I am beyond concerned about global climate change and the lack of attention it receives from our representatives. Atmospheric temperature increases are warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, melting permafrost, causing sea level increase, ocean...
