Letter to the Editor: A ‘distaste for immigrants’

It seems like only yesterday, although the year was 1980, when my Army Civil Affairs Reserve Unit was given the mission of processing and locating sponsors for the Cuban refugees at Fort Dix after the Mariel boatlift. They came over barefooted and in a few days, everyone of us had the whooping cough. When we […]

Letter to the Editor: What some babies are saying

Because of you there is no light In my world there is only night You robbed me of all things that would be fun I’ll never be able to crawl walk or even run You didn’t want me, so I had to die There is a lot of things that you didn’t even try Childless […]

Letter to the Editor: Mueller failure? My foot!

Frank Daniels’ DSN Commentary (6/6) said that the Mueller investigation was an “absolute failure.” My “investigation” of Daniels’ commentary says that his story might be best judged to be a propaganda success but would otherwise be a failure as a search for truth or justice. The political universe of reality has this important problem: ask […]

Letter to the Editor: The high cost of Dover living

So now the city of Dover is considering raising property taxes. Recently, the voters of the Capital School District also voted to raise property taxes, which is done and a different issue. But, to old Dover residents, this Dover proposal raises a few questions as well as adds to our burden. Didn’t the city just […]

Letter to the Editor: Marijuana myths

I am sorry to see so many myths and so much misinformation surrounding cannabis legalization. Per a recent UD poll, over 60% of Delawareans support it, and rightfully so. THC, cannabis’ active drug, is not physically addictive, nor does it lead to aggressive or violent behavior. Yet alcohol, which is physically addictive and causes many […]

This is in response to Ms. Pritchett’s letter on June 1. She questions Joe Biden’s morality. Vice President Biden is running for president. His personal belief in Roe vs. Wade is consistent with the majority of America. She states that as a Catholic, he must follow the teachings of the Holy Father. Even though John […]

Letter to the Editor: Thinning the herd

Assisted suicide is the first step in providing a means to “thin the herd.” Insurance companies will be salivating if this bill gets out of committee, is voted into law and signed by our governor. What would be the incentive for healthcare companies, Medicare or Medicaid to continue paying your health care costs when they […]

Letter to the Editor: Crash and burn time for the Democrats

Now that the Mueller investigation is over that was so darn boring and never really got anywhere, I’m getting excited about the new investigation by attorney general Robert Barr. I’d like to see James Comey and Peter Strzok be first up to bat. Probably we are going to get a lot of answers from them […]

Letter to the Editor: Guarding against foreign powers

I am a 96-year-old World War II veteran who was assigned to protect our national boundaries from foreigners invading or crossing our borders during the years of 1941-1946 President Trump is attempting to accomplish the same problem without full support and without giving up the lives of our military personnel. Why can’t the Democratic Party […]
