Letter to the editor: Unenforceable law

To the editor: Substance prohibition hasn’t worked since Adam and Eve took a bite of the forbidden fruit. If the fear of God wasn’t enough to keep them partaking, it seems awfully arrogant of a prohibitionist to think that somehow they can do what God Almighty could not.

Letter to the editor: Disappointing choice

To the editor: Very, very disappointing to see your endorsement of Jeff Merkley. You are endorsing a guy who, to my knowledge, has never held anything but a public or government job yet he continues to drone on and on about his "blue collar" upbringing and "common man" persona.
