Reader takes issue with previous letter
Editor:

Unfortunately the letter to the editor, this past week, re: President Obama, starts out with a false statement—“it’s not true I believe everything I read on the Internet.” He has shown us in his original letter and in this letter that he really does believe every lie that is written on the Internet.

Reader: Facts support president’s policies
Editor:

In response to Mr. Keely’s critique of my Feb. 3 letter, “Grateful for hope and change,” he erroneously believes that Halliburton was rewarded with no-bid multi-billion-dollar contracts in the lead up to the Iraq invasion because they were the only company qualified to perform the required services.

Reader grateful for responders to fire

It is the most heartbreaking thing to see. That is the cruelty of dogs being chained or penned 24/7.

Media sources promote bigotry
Editor:

This is in response to Mr. [Thomas M.] Keely’s critique of my Feb. 3 letter, “Grateful for hope and change.” He presents a very long litany of complaints about our president. They beg the question of what media sources he utilizes to obtain his dubious information.

You can fight town hall, if you do try
Editor:

How many times do we read an article in the paper and become so infuriated we toss the paper across the room in disgust? “How can those idiots do that?” we say to no one in particular. Two minutes later, we start on the sports page. We forget what upset us and move on with our lives.

Spirit of Christmas gets ringing endorsement
Editor:

Christmas is upon us once again. We need to take the time to remind ourselves that Christmas is about love. It is a time of charity and giving, not of materialism and receiving. A new iPad or a flatscreen might keep you entertained for a time, but ultimately they are just empty objects.
