Letter to the Editor: Don’t reward wealthy

To the editor: Republican mega-donors are threatening to cut funding to the party if it fails to pass tax "reform.” Republicans are responding with proposed tax cuts that will reward their wealthy donors' campaign contributions with over a trillion dollars in added income over the next decade.

Letter to the Editor: Cartoon was offensive

To the editor: We were deeply offended by the "Florist Shop" political cartoon in the Nov. 7 issue. It was in very poor taste and uncalled for in light of common decency and compassion.

Letter to the Editor: The Dalles needs HAL

To the editor: I just read about Janna Hege’s resignation from HAL (Home at Last Humane Society). This really upsets me! It seems that in the short time she took over, she made things happen – and fast. The Dalles desperately need HAL! Please people, work together and make it happen.

Letter to the Editor: Let’s find balance

To the editor: I have lived in Oregon all of my life, spending my childhood in the forested region of the southwest. This year was especially difficult to see so many forests burned not only across the West but so close to home here in Oregon.

Letter to the Editor: Walden uncaring

To the editor: In response to Mr. Ebi’s claim ( Oct 26 letter) that Greg Walden’s work on health care “will continue because he cares about Oregonians and ensuring everyone has access to affordable and quality health care,” I feel the need to remind folks of the disastrous American Health Care Act that Greg Walden helped craft back in the spring of this year.

Letter to the Editor: Righting a wrong

To the editor: What would you do if you had dutifully been taking care of your finances, but suddenly the marketplace you were using got taken over by a hostile organization that denied you access to what you had been carefully caretaking?

Letter to the Editor: Shocked by cartoon

To the editor: I opened the editorial page on Tuesday and was shocked to my core. The stereotypical depiction of a black person was prominent in one of the editorial “cartoons,” and I use the term loosely. Who on the editorial staff didn’t recognize that as a racist drawing?

Letter to the Editor: Don’t kneel, whine

To the editor: I believe most sports fans tune in to actually escape from rancorous reality by watching an exciting and rewarding football game. But they don’t tune in to see some player kneel and whine during our national anthem.

Letter to the Editor: Not normal times

To the editor: Had John F Kennedy written his Profiles in Courage in our time, which contemporary senator would he include? On Tuesday I had an answer: Jeff Flake, the Republican senator from Arizona. I don’t say that lightly. Flake’s politics are not my politics. His political beliefs have left me cold and others invoke passionate opposition. But these are not normal times.

Letter to the Editor: Wonderful

To the editor: I would like to tell you about a wonderful concert that I attended Friday at St. Peter’s Landmark. I love going to concerts at the Landmark; the church is so beautiful, the music sounds so great — it’s almost magical.

Letter to the Editor: Baseless

To the editor: This letter is in response to those who’ve written letters to this paper with fearmongering claims that Congressman Walden is trying to rip health care away from people. These baseless arguments fly in the face of the fact that Obamacare is collapsing.
