Cross party lines if not stuck on stupid

Questioning Hillary’s pneumonia diagnosis

September 24, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I’ve had pneumonia several times, so I’m questioning Hillary Clinton’s doctor’s diagnosis. I have never stumbled nor fallen. Mostly, I had a deep cough, fever, aches and pains, and congestion in my chest. Also, I was tired and weak. Usually I wound up...

Last theology letter quotes the scripture

September 20, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This will be my last letter on theology for the timebeing. I am deferring to the editor, who told us in his Sept. 11 column he is weary of the arguments about religion. In this letter, I will discuss the deity of Jesus Christ. There are many more issues...
