Chapel owners only look at one sin
Nov. 9, 2014
David Nye and Dolly de Leon, owners of A Elvis Chapel, are in the wrong business for traditional Christians (“Can wedding chapels refuse gay couples?” Nov. 1).
Address problems, learn from them
Nov. 9, 2014
I read Carmine DiFazio’s letter with interest (“Midterm elections to stun Democrats,” Oct. 24). Last I read, on Oct. 24, the stock market had risen greatly, not by a few points, but a few percentage points. I would hardly call that tanking.
Treating pets better than humans
Nov. 8, 2014
Human beings are indeed “strange,” in that we treat our pets better than we do our parents or siblings.
It’s time to challenge beliefs
Nov. 8, 2014
There are religious leaders who’ve espoused holy wars in the name of God. The one thing all faiths appear to agree on is that God is just. There is no one faith available around the world, hence people choose from what’s available where they’re born or adopt the faith of their parents. Would a just God condemn citizens for their chosen faith?
Judge made the right call on Uber
Nov. 8, 2014
Hooray. Judge Douglas Herndon did the right thing in the Uber hearing. He used a common-sense approach and evaluated the case, allowing Uber to continue operations in Las Vegas.
President’s rating could be lower
Nov. 7, 2014
I keep reading in the Sun and seeing on TV that President Barack Obama’s approval rating is similar to President George W. Bush’s.
Remember past indiscretions
Nov. 7, 2014
President Barack Obama is not a perfect human being, nor a perfect president. There, I said it.
U.N. doesn’t seem interested in Egypt
Nov. 7, 2014
News reports of violating the rights of people in their own homes again! Why can’t the Palestinians be secure in their own homes? Why should another country impose restrictions in lands not within that country’s borders? This must be brought to the attention of the United Nations.
Recognize Obama’s accomplishments
Nov. 6, 2014
American voters are a fickle group. The current trend is to criticize President Barack Obama, but for what, they aren’t sure. Of course there is the always-ready Republican chant, famously used by President Bill Clinton: “It’s the economy, stupid.” But is it?
ID laws could lead to a slippery slope
Nov. 6, 2014
The cartoon and letter critical of voter ID laws in the Nov. 1 edition of the Sun are spot on.
No Bush or Clinton — start fresh
Nov. 6, 2014
As a Democrat who came here from Illinois (to escape hypocrisy), the Sun’s Oct. 28 cartoon about Jeb Bush sorta backfired in my eyes.
Our leaders don’t value education
Nov. 5, 2014
It’s football season, and there were some “Hail Mary” political ads. The political ad I received from my first-term assemblyman (I won’t mention his name; I’m not voting for him anyway) expounded on how he and his party will make our lives better — how they will fund education, reduce classroom size, increase pre-K enrollment and support full-day kindergarten. I am left with a question that he can’t or won’t answer publicly. How?
Support EPA’s Clean Power Plan
Nov. 5, 2014
Excessive flash flooding during the monsoon season could become the new normal in Nevada. This news has been downright scary for Nevadans who could lose their cars or houses to flood waters. But extreme rain and flooding is exactly the sort of weather that climate scientists predict will become more frequent in Nevada unless we reign in the carbon pollution fueling global warming.
A vote against opponent bashing
Nov. 5, 2014
I am a senior, been around the block a few times and have been through many political campaigns, but this Ross Miller/Adam Laxalt battle of accusations beats them all .
Riviera should fold on tiger show
Nov. 4, 2014
In regards to the story “Big cats scrambling back to the Strip with Dirk Arthur’s ‘Wild Illusions’ at the Riv” (Oct. 7): The Riviera, once a proud Strip icon, is really going …
