Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Where's the pea?

To the editor: As a young, naïve farm boy, I remember going to the circus side shows. The shill had a pea and three half walnut shells. He bet you two bits against a dollar you could not guess which shell the pea was under. Of course, it was in his hand all the time.

Letter to the Editor: Basic geography

To the editor: The letter titled, “Miracles here” in the March 24 edition looked interesting. For one thing, it seemed to be pushing the 400 word limit. However, it was the mention of telescopes in the first paragraph, that caught my attention.

Letter to the Editor: Register now

letter to the Editor: Puppet leader

To the editor: (Edited for length.) Scrolling through the past letters to the editor, I cannot help but notice all of the letters regarding Obama, good or bad, right or wrong, whether the media covers him responsibly. This is all a false dichotomy meant to distract and divide.

Letter to the Editor: On butt patrol
