Letter to the Editor: What of guns already in circulation?

Dear Gov. Carney, I applaud your efforts along with other governors to address “sensible gun safety.” But I’d like to see an answer to the overall problem which I’ve never seen addressed. What, if anything, can be done about all the guns already in circulation? Wikipedia says there are 393 million guns in the U.S. […]

Letter to the Editor: Unions beneficial to workers

In response to Mark Mix’s commentary of Sept. 1 (“Consider the injustice of forced union dues”) where he bemoans what he considers the “injustice of forced union dues,” I would like highlight my experience as a union member in New Castle County’s Library Department.

Letter to the Editor: A new word for Trump

He’s done it before, and now he’s at it again! Promising a pardon to anyone breaking the law for his political purposes! It’s amazing, astonishing, disgusting, not surprising, and impeachable!
