  • Schools can learn from each other

    Dear Editor,

    In another amazing display of audacious opportunism, President Bush has discovered a way to pour another trillion dollars into the pockets of his corporate friends.

    In his first term Bush was able to turn the tragedy of 9/11 into a bonanza for his friends by initiating the war in Iraq. He panicked the Congress into authorizing the war, abandoning its constitutional prerogatives, and granting him unprecedented executive powers.

  • Be sure to vote

    Dear Editor,

    The U.S. presidential election is just over a month away. This election is particularly important. While canvassing during the last several weeks, I had many thought-provoking conversations about politics. I was saddened to hear some folks say that they did not plan to vote and weren’t sure if they were even registered. It seems clear that the month of October promises to be volatile for our nation because of Wall Street, housing prices, energy, etc. Perhaps some previously indifferent citizens might wish they could vote when Nov. 4 rolls around.

  • Internet can lead to incorrect data

    Dear Editor,

  • McCain a dangerous maverick

    Dear Editor,

    Last week we witnessed a spirited and revealing debate between two of our presidential candidates. While there were many interesting and comment-worthy points and issues discussed, I was struck by one in particular, made by Sen. John McCain.

  • Obama must win election

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve been reading lately that the polls show McCain is leading Obama now that the conventions are over. I have confidence this will change as the election grinds to November. I believe this because the substance of the Republican platform is duplicity and deception that will become evident. For example. Republicans claim to be the party that supports the troops, with their ex-POW, flag lapel wearing candidates, but the reality is that in policy and action the opposite is true.

  • Blaming Republicans wrong

    Dear Editor,

    I just recently read an article “Residents express concern over missing campaign signs” and the wife of County Councilor Mike Wheeler made some very strong accusations towards Republicans stating, “I thought Republicans stood for freedom and property rights, but maybe that is only for them.”

  • Lots of blame to go around

    Dear Editor,

    In a recent letter to the editor (Sept. 11) takes the Republican Party to task for a variety of financial ills, including the recent takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by federal officials. Was this wrath properly directed or should it be more bipartisan? A brief history leading to this crisis is instructive.

  • Gladly, Bushs last hurrah

    Dear Editor,

  • Similar words not the same

    EDITOR’S NOTE: I want to thank Terry for pointing out the mistake I made in my column Sunday in copying the preamble. Knowing better is not enough. Thanks Terry.

    Dear Editor,

    I suppose I cannot blame you, since Wikipedia and many other sites (not sights!) that ought to know better have it wrong also, but: the preamble says that action is being taken to “ensure domestic tranquility,” not “insure.” See the original text at the Library of Congress: memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/bdsdcc:@field(DOCID+@lit(bdsdccc0801))

  • Co-op not involved in site

    Dear Editor,

    The letter by Vincent Chiravalle in the Monitor (“Trinity Site not good for county,” Sept. 9) includes several misconceptions about the issues surrounding the public/private partnership and construction of the new municipal building and commercial building at the 15th and Trinity site. His letter imputes certain motivations to the Los Alamos Co-operative Market (LACM) Board of Directors that are inaccurate, and the board would like to clarify our position.
