Letter to the editor: And 'the cow jumped over the moon'
Remember the old nursery rhyme, "Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such sport and the dish ran away with the spoon." Well, it seems the Democrats would rather believe that nursery rhyme before they would believe...

As I See It: After the soul is gone
I'm a fan of many types of music and artists. Bobby Bare had a song years ago titled, "Nashville is Rough on the Living, But She Really Speaks Well of the Dead." It appears you could substitute "Washington, D.C.," "The Washington Post" or "The New York Times" for "Nashville" and it...

As I See It: The America I believe we need
Without the "every critical word is directed at our current president approach" of Don Bye's column from last week, I offer a few comments and corrections. We are not in danger of sliding toward another Sodom and Gomorrah. We've been there since the start of the 20th century and have...

Letter to the Editor: There's only one set of facts
Steve Olson certainly likes to reference words, not deeds. He said I should Google "Trump quotes that challenge constitutional laws." I did, and it gave me 2,680,000 results, not the 5,500,000 stated by Mr. Olson. If you Google the same phrase but substitute "Obama" for "Trump" you...

Letter to the editor: WWIII is not a charm
Donald Trump is struggling wildly trying to keep his head above water in our White House. The floods he's battling are of his own making; he keeps blowing up dams, creating Johnstown-like floods for himself, mirroring his six bankruptcies and 3,500 lawsuits. It's his nature. The president's...

As I See It: The state of the union is ... sad
Have you ever gone on a family outing and had a teenager who decided he didn't want to go? And after being told he had to go anyway and that was the end of it, his petty, petulant attitude and behavior pretty much ruined what could have been and should have been an enjoyable time...

Letter to the editor: Trump will end
Donald Trump installed former military man Michael Flynn to our highest, most trusted position in terms of national security. President Obama had done the right thing in getting rid of Flynn (in 2014?) and in warning Trump when he was handed the reins to beware of Flynn; Flynn was...

As I See It: The pendulum and the pit
I have a clock that I bought in Germany in 1974. It keeps time using a pendulum and weights. In order to ensure the time is accurate, the pendulum requires periodic adjustments - more often around the summer and winter solstices. I don't understand all the physics involved, but understanding...

Letter to the editor: Barack Obama's legacy
The following are highlights from The New York Times on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017: "Barack Obama is leaving the White House with polls showing him to be one of the most popular presidents in recent decades. This makes sense. His achievements, not least pulling the nation back from the...
