January 21, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read with some interest Mr. Bill Schwartz’s letter of Jan. 20. I remember things that he seems to have forgotten. In 1980, the Republicans bribed the revolutionary government of Iran to keep the American prisoners until after the U.S. election, thereby helping guarantee Reagan’s presidency. In the 2000 election, Jeb Bush dumped thousands of [&hellip...

CASA advocates can be trusted

Today, a 12-year-old boy wrote to us, “Thank you for believing and trusting in me. No one has ever done that before. No one ever does what they say they will do, but you did.” Our CASA children know incredible abuse. Even worse, they are let down time and...

Rancor in the ranks is very disturbing

January 19, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am a senior octogenarian who has watched all of the elections since President Roosevelt’s victory in 1944. I was a senior in high school at the time and the teacher of my civics class included discussions of the campaign, the election, the Electoral...

Taking a shameful ride around town

January 18, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

It would be nice to have a new $20 million water park, a new multi-million dollar convention center even though we lose money on the one we already have, and let’s throw in a big tent city. Build it and they will come. Sounds great but we are 19 officers...

(Editor’s note: The following letter is in reference to a photo and caption that ran in the Jan. 7 edition, in which J.T. Craycofat can be seen riding a horse in the snow to pick up groceries for a friend.) J.T. Craycofat, what a friend. We don’t have a...

Got a laugh from loser’s point of view

January 18, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I enjoyed reading your article (Wednesday) morning (Dispatch New Mexico column by Tom McDonald). I always enjoy a good laugh before I start the day. You guys keep stirring the pot. Maybe you’ll get lucky and someone will actually believe what you are...

The RDR, its letters and liberal clichés

January 17, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Once again the RDR editorial staff has maintained it’s standard editorial policy by printing four letters to refute one letter written by Linda Kral. In her letter of Jan. 10, she made several valid points as to the Record’s editorial policy in regards to...

When truth has no meaning, power rules

January 17, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

We live in a world where truth is hard to find, at least in the popular media. Almost everything is presented to us as if truth were merely an opinion, as if there were two sides to every story. Nothing is right, and nothing is wrong. It all depends on your...

Americans can’t tolerate fools

January 14, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The thing that, to me, is most disturbing about President Trump’s alleged perverse sexual exploits in Russia is that his ego has him fixated on denial. That’s the rub! His opposition knows full well that he cannot just deny, let it slide and move on to...
