Letter to the Editor: Fact checking Trump's statements
To the editor: (In response to the Aug. 24 letter, "Media promotes fear-mongering"): No, I can't name all 3,000 lies Trump made. You'll have to go to the Washington Post Fact Check for that. Or, try Factcheck.org, they will even add your subscription. Of course, being a Trump supporter,...

Letter to the Editor: Media promotes fear-mongering
To the editor: Larry Leighton (July 27 letter to the editor), if you would have taken the time to read the letter I was referring to and read my whole letter you would realize that it wasn't about President Trump or lies. It was about people who get a piece of information that fits...

Letter to the Editor: Separating children from parents is monstrous
To the editor: The Trump administration has separated over 2,000 children from their parents. This is immoral. It is ugly. It is monstrous. It is not Christian. In a Christian nation, children are not separated from their parents. Children are not put in cages. Children are not disappeared....

LETTER: Bombing explanation shelters Trump
To the editor: I find it odd almost immediately after the Syrian bombing we have an explanation that is meant to wipe away the doubts of the reason for the attack, mainly to shelter Trump from further scrutiny. I can't help wonder, where was this lengthy explanation when Clinton...
