Looking Back on October 15, 2017

From the archives of The Dalles Chronicle

Letter to the Editor: Civil gun discussion

To the editor: This is an open letter to gun owners in my community. I am confident that we are all alike in this way: We all feel great shock and sadness about the people who were recently killed and seriously injured in the Las Vegas shooting. We are different in this way: I do not own any guns. I don’t believe that this difference needs to divide us the way it has often done.

Letter to the Editor: It takes knowledge

To the editor: It is more difficult to engage a man with the word g-o-d than it is with a specific topic derived from the Scriptures. If I began a conversation with a man using the word g-o-d this and g-o-d that it would be a very short conversation. It is much more reasonable to say, “Did you know that the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah foretold of the Jewish people returning to their land after their dispersion by the Romans?”
