Feedback about the Jan. 7 edition

January 9, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

There are two things in the Jan. 7 paper I would like to respond to. First: thank you, thank you, thank you for running a column by Lenore Skenazy. I’ve been enjoying her work for years in The Funny Times, a monthly humor newspaper I subscribe to. She is...

January 9, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

To Nate Jones (Millennial Voices, Jan. 6), I am excited to know someone (you) who (not “that”) has respect for the language and all its rules and nuances. I do hope you’ll follow your talent and make a career. (To the editor: He could be a stringer.)...

Time running out for ‘Obama agenda’

January 9, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

President Obama has only a short time to complete the agenda the right-wing nuts say he has planned. They say he wants to: 1. Set up death panels for us takers on Social Security. 3. Confiscate all our guns. 3. Declare himself President for Life. He better...

Editor’s column misses the point

January 9, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

“What’s up with that?” you asked regarding the drop in “Letters to the Editor.” I think it is far too easy to blame it on the holidays. But honestly, how long does it take to write a letter if one is inspired, angered, frustrated, passionate,...

Writer proclaims‘enough already’

January 2, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A year of lessons without conclusion

December 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

2016. What did I see? I saw a good-hearted, independent senator from Vermont submit his name to run on the Democratic ticket for president. He didn’t have to do that. He could have run as an independent, and his message was such that he might have cornered...

An encouraging moment in NM

Many New Mexicans may not be aware of an incident in Albuquerque a few weeks ago, only briefly reported, about a (presumably Muslim) woman wearing a hijab (scarf) in a Smith’s supermarket, who was verbally assaulted by a hysterical woman telling her to go...

Secularism is its own religion

December 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I read in the paper where Belen and several other small towns across the country are refusing to take down their nativity scenes despite legal threats. I say good for them. As the mayor of Belen states, “The nativity scene not only represents the history of...
