Fuzzy math with soccer stadium
Oct. 16, 2014
In response to a recent article about soccer stadium funding, Oscar and Carolyn Goodman, the Cordish Co. and the Findlay family just don’t seem to get it. We taxpayers flat don’t want the deal, period.

Stay out of the way, government
Oct. 14, 2014
Bruce Karley said in a recent column he believes U.S. House Speaker John Boehner presides over a bunch of do-nothing Republicans who get “big bucks” for doing “zero work.” They believe the jobless don’t want to …
It’s a tough time to be president
Oct. 13, 2014
Millions of Americans breathed a sigh of relief and said “good riddance” when George W. Bush flew out of Washington, D.C., for the last time as president.
Wrong city for Biden’s message
Oct. 13, 2014
It was noble of Vice President Joe Biden to come to Las Vegas on Oct. 6. He was on a mission to encourage raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. This would be much higher pay than the current minimum wage and would help many workers.

Our government, militants and 9/11
Oct. 11, 2014
How can anyone say with a straight face that our government is concerned about the Islamic State attacking us on the homefront when officials keep our southern border wide open and portray the Fort Hood attack as common workplace violence?
Americans show greed in elections
Oct. 11, 2014
A recent Associated Press story cites a recent poll that found 9 in 10 voters think the economy is a major issue in the coming election. That sounds like the polling before our past presidential election.
Obama cartoon was bush league
Oct. 11, 2014
I was surprised the Sun would publish uncritically the cartoon of President Barack Obama by Kevin Siers in the Oct. 4 edition.
Replace Heck with Bilbray

Stop foreign flights to block Ebola
