Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:   So what is new? Well, the Republicans are playing dirty pool. They held the majority in the Senate when they refused to hold a vote on Judge Garland, an Obama appointee in 2016 to fill the vacant seat held by the late Antonin Scalia in an election year. Now they do the opposite and...
To the Editor:   Clearly Ms Joe Bleess hasn’t been reading her newspaper lately.  The respected Religious News Service published an interview this summer calling Donald Trump a “spiritual danger”.  This is quite a different message than Ms Bleess gave last week in this newspaper saying that God...
To the Editor:   Dear neighbors, these are difficult times for everyone. Christ called us to love our neighbor, be kind to the poor, do not judge, do not lie and live in peace. How can we follow these teachings in all that we do? How can we support leaders who best follow these principles? Please...
To the Editor:   I believe there are many of us who are weary of the political campaigning of this season.  My adult granddaughter asked me ironically if it were possible to get a do-over.  Get rid of both candidates and start again with fresh ideas.  Personally, I am weary of half truths and...
To the Editor:   I find it sad to see Biden signs around town. A vote for Biden is a vote for socialism. I am not willing to give up all the rights we are guaranteed in The Constitution of the United States. With a Biden presidency law abiding citizens would be forced to give up their guns. Supreme...
To the Editor:   Things to consider regarding the Supreme Court:  the two most powerful Republicans, Trump and McConnell, have very different motivations here.  Trump has only gain here as he has almost nothing else to run on and desperately needs every game changer he can get. McConnell knows that...
To the Editor:   Having been raised in small town U.S.A., Long Prairie, my parents taught me if you can’t say anything good about a person, don’t say anything at all. I assume Tim King’s parents didn’t teach him that.  Not liking a president for his policies is one thing, but to bash President...
To the Editor:   In an effort to clear out excess clutter, we held a free garage sale.  Our objective was to get rid of unneeded, but usable, items. We just asked that anyone who took something make a donation to either the Long Prairie Fire Department or the Long Prairie Emergency Food Pantry. ...
To the Editor:   Page 6A of the 6-24-20 issue from the Leader has a three-column headline that states that “Richard Dahl seeks to unseat Sen. Paul Gazelka in Dist. 9.” Is this an editorial, or is it a news article? If the latter, it is rife with fake news. The second sentence of the lead paragraph...
To the Editor:   As a college community, we have struggled with how best to respond to the recent act of violence against George Floyd and historically against people of color and American Indians, locally, across the state and our nation. We share the pain, anger and frustration reflected...
