Statue sullies Johnny Unitas
Sept. 17, 2014
The indefinite suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice by the NFL is appropriate punishment for Rice’s despicable and dastardly act of hitting his girlfriend and knocking her unconscious. The NFL in July suspended Rice for two games and recently upgraded the suspension to indefinite.
So much for private enterprise
Sept. 16, 2014
No one can deny that Las Vegas is a world-class entertainment destination. Our resorts excel in producing an experience enjoyed worldwide.
Dem stimulus is bad, GOP’s is good
Sept. 16, 2014
The double standard presented by Sen. Dean Heller’s position on the Tesla tax incentives and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act are startling. His website states: The Tesla announcement “shows Governor Sandoval’s policy of creating a low-tax environment to attract cutting-edge industry leaders, like Tesla, is working for our state.”
History shows Iran can’t be trusted
Sept. 16, 2014
In 1985, the United States made a secret arms sale to Iran despite an arms embargo. President Ronald Reagan went on to say the sale, which became part of the Iran-Contra affair, was made in hopes of the release seven U.S. hostages in Lebanon, and to repair animosity between the U.S. and Iran.
Nation spending itself to collapse
Sept. 15, 2014
The Sept. 8 letter “Two key programs and conservatives” misses the bigger problem.
Honor Rivers with laughter
Sept. 15, 2014
I learned from the death of Robin Williams that the best way to remember the passing of a comedian is not with a customary “moment of silence” because the worst thing a comic can hear is nothing.
U.S. should abolish the death penalty
Sept. 15, 2014
No one is justified in taking a human life, except in self-defense.
Maybe Bush could advise on Iraq
Sept. 14, 2014
Considering all the experience that George W. Bush has gained in Iraq, I propose that President Barack Obama appoint Bush as an adviser with the title of chief White House strategist for Iraq.
Don’t judge all casinos the same
Sept. 14, 2014
The headline of the Aug. 31 letter “Something missing at casinos today” actually should have been “A bad day at Santa Fe Station.”
Sept. 11 attacks are incomparable
Sept. 14, 2014
I agree with the writer of the Sept. 4 letter “Remember another Sept. 11 tragedy” that the Mountain Meadows Massacre was a tragic event culminating in a great number of murdered civilians. But please be fair.
Wrong approach on gun safety
Sept. 13, 2014
The writer of the Aug. 24 letter “Will NRA back this plan?” compares guns to autos and suggests steps to improve gun safety. He advocates yearly gun registration and payment of a tax, like with autos.
Military-industrial complex’s money
Sept. 13, 2014
Those who want to know why the police are being militarized need only follow the money and it will become clear.
Columbia River could help region
Sept. 12, 2014
The drought in Western states is arguably the worst threat our country currently faces. We need to take action!
Voting barriers in red states
Sept. 12, 2014
The Supreme Court took away the last protection blacks had through the Voting Right Act. In a historically biased decision, the Supreme Court, with its majority appointed by Republican presidents, told the areas with a history of discrimination that is was now OK to practice those same discriminatory practices that had been illegal since 1965.
Why no coverage of incident?
Sept. 11, 2014
Will someone please tell us what happened sometime around 6 p.m. Aug. 29 to draw a huge mob of people (and police) in front of Boulder Station, enough to nearly close down northbound Boulder Highway traffic to one slow-moving lane. Why was it not considered newsworthy by any of the media?
