Letter to the Editor: My Swan Song

Dear Editor, I imagine everyone knows what a Swan Song is.  This is mine!First, I want to thank GB and DC for their opinions which were "great" because they match mine.  Too bad that some people with obvious disabilities couldn't see they were true!!  Keep going, Gents...As for me, I am weary of over-inflated egos [Anyone got a pin?].

Letter to the Editor: White House turns down disaster aid for East Palestine, OH

Dear Editor, It wasn't a tornado or a hurricane...just toxic materials that East Palestine, Ohio has to deal with.  [NO BIG DEAL!!]  Right??  Pete Buttigieg-Biden's Secretary of Transportation-says train derailments happen 1,000 times a year.  So...He's NOT going there.  One thousand times a year??  Funny, I don't recall 1,000 train derailments last year dumping toxic waste in any American cities.

When the clock strikes Midnight

I've been digging around on a couple of stories and that usually keeps me up until the wee hours of the morning. I kept hitting dead ends in finding what I was looking for. So I thought I'd try ChatGPT. It's supposed to be able to dig up information older than the last couple of years. So I gave that a shot to no avail. Another job hazard is that I see all kinds of information across my desk.

Letter to the Editor: Which was the "Real" Horror Movie?

Dear Editor, Yawn...Ho-Hum!!  Sorry, I've only had three mugs of coffee and a shower to blast me out of my stupor after watching the "low-lights" of the State of the Union event on GMA this morning.As many of you know, I said I would not watch Biden's on stage performance.  I weighed the positives and negatives, and I made the wise decision to watch a horror movie on my laptop.

Letter to the Editor: You've got to be kidding me...

Hey, Joe...Looks like you've got an unhappy NYC Democratic mayor.  You know him, right?  [Eric Andrews]  It seems like 42,000 illegal immigrants have sought asylum in  New York City since last spring.  He stated, "We continue to  surpass our moral obligations with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services.

Letter to the Editor: Abortion

Dear Editor,Life begins at the point of conception. No one can deny that after a human being is conceived it will develop into the very same being as those debating this issue. What astounds me is that those who favor abortion went through an identical development stage as the being they are condemning to death. Would these very same people agree that a similar choice should have been made about their own existence? How many human lives have been lost that could have added to our society in so many ways?Abortion today is used primarily as a birth control of convenience because people are too self-centered to take precautions.

Build a Bridge and Get over it

"Build a Bridge and get over it" was the line used by Supervisor Rick Primmer in a campaign letter in support of the former Benton County Attorney, David Thompson. Quoting a line he said that came from his own father, Primmer addressed what he thought were reasons that people had for not wanting to vote for former County Attorney David Thompson...oh and also the lone supervisor who welcomed huge campaign signs on his property in support of Thompson.

Bush Barack ObamaDonald TrumpJoe BidenMike Pence. That's right, they all served as United States President or Vice President...Oh and they all had classified documents outside the White House. That's right, documents have now been found in Mike Pence's house. I'm telling ya, everyone needs to check your garage, look under the bed, check in the toy box, I'm telling you, the classified papers are running loose around the country.

Letter to the Editor: Cruelty is the point

Dear Editor, The Iowa House presented House File 3, which severely restricts SNAP recipients on what they can purchase. Red meat is out. Bread is out. There are about 23 things that are actually in. Not surprisingly, Thomas Gerholt, our local representative from Atkins, supports this monstrous bill and is a co-sponsor.This is the kind of thing that should make Iowans proud.
