Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:   I take umbrage at letter writer George Link’s reference to our “outdated”election system..... namely the Electoral College. We live in the United States of America. Each state is accorded representation within the Federal government, part of which is proportionalto the individual...
To the Editor:   It seemed appropriate to share the words of Jeff Foxworthy at this time, before we go out and vote. “Lets see if I’ve got this!!! If you cross the North Korean Border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.  If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely. ...
To the Editor:   I feel I must respond to Mr. Towle’s remarks in the 10/17/18 edition of the Leader.  The first inaccurate statement was that the “American electorate” failed to elect Ms. Clinton, President. She was in fact elected by nearly 3 million more people than Donald Trump in the popular...
To the Editor:   We approach Election Day on November 6th with a great sense of division in our country.  Americans have grown reluctant to discuss policy and governance out of fear of alienating or offending neighbors and friends, or have instead embraced the rhetoric of division and tribalism. ...
To the Editor:   I am saddened by all the women and men who laughed at the President’s mocking of women who found the courage to speak out. And, I have to wonder if they realize that they are raising their sons and daughters to perpetuate a “ boys will be boys culture” and a “ girls are less...
To the Editor:   Every month on our yearly calendars is a commemoration of awareness of one thing or another.  October seems to have a theme of sorts, as it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, National Bullying Month, National Crime Prevention month and also safe schools has a week during October...
To the Editor:   I believe there are about 900 Federal judges in the country, and I am sure that many of them are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Appointments use to be regularly confirmed by near unanimous votes. A golden retriever could pick someone near the center, fully disclose their...
To the Editor:   October is National Bullying Prevention Month, with much of the focus on kids and bullying in school.  What we don’t hear as often, is the effects of adult bullying.  In reality, this problem is just as prevalent, but is often not as widely discussed. Nearly three-quarters of...
To the Editor:   If you’re a parent, chances are you are somewhere in the middle of back to school frenzy:  school supply lists, making sure your kids have plenty of pencils and paper, double checking the school bus schedule, marking your calendar with extracurricular activities, and more.  But...
To the Editor:   Today, 422 people in this country will die from lung cancer; the number one cancer killer of both women and men (approximately 154,050 per year), yet least federally funded research of all cancers. In Minnesota alone, there are expected to be 3,980 new lung cancer diagnoses in 2018...
