Letter to the Editor: Happy to be in Vinton

Dear Editor,I believe I'm among the luckiest, no, most fortunate, a person you'll know. My wife is safely and thoughtfully cared for in the Virginia Gay Rehab facility managed expertly by Jessica Henkle. Meanwhile, I live with my daughter in a friendly condo community called Cedarview which is across the Parking lot of the hospital complex.The golf cart allows me the freedom to drive to see my wife, attend coffee with the "wise guys" at the shelter house for coffee.

Reading my mind: 9/11

I really don't think that there is anything that I can say now, which hasn't been expressed about the events that took place on September 11, 2001. If you were alive then you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when the second plane hit the World Trade Center. You might remember the first, but that second was a clear message to everyone in the United States that we were under attack.

Letter to the Editor: A Lesson in History

Editor:Ms. Gould,Your ignorance shows - that war did not last 20 years 1964-1975. The Vietnam War was first started with Advisors and Green Berets ordered in by John F. Kennedy, a Democrat. After his assassination with Lyndon Johnson as the new President, a Democrat and with the CIA creating Coup after Coup of South Vietnam leaders we got deeper and deeper into the conflict until sometime in the 65-68 era it turned into America's War.

Letter to the Editor: Kabul and America

Dear Editor, Maybe my skin is getting thin in my old age but the disaster in Kabul has been weighing heavily on me. And to top the day off, proud Christian American that I consider myself, I read a request for emergency prayer from a pastor with missionaries in Afghanistan. Seems like 229 Americans have been sentenced to death TODAY by the Taliban. Any word from the media? Any word from the President, good, honest Catholic, pro-choice, liberal slime ball that he is?! Not a peep.

Letter to the Editor: Ignorance is Bliss

Dear Editor, I have not fully realized until this day how ignorant my critics are. You even typo your name in error. You have advanced degrees but show less intelligence, than the lowest of factory workers. Those who labor to better their families and their wealth are more educated than the majority with advanced degrees. As one wise person has stated, "I would choose at random the first five people in the phone book listings rather than any who chose politics as a profession, or anyone with an advanced degree".

Dear Editor, I read an article by Frosty Wooldridge this week that sums up my feelings."Half the people in America scratch their heads in wonderment concerning the Biden Administration. How did Joe Biden, after 47 years of accomplishing about as much as a chicken scratching in the dirt for worms, ascend to the presidency of the United States?It brings to mind the story of the "Post Turtle.
