Today's Opinions

  • Faith not a light-hearted topic

    Dear Editor,

    I could not believe my eyes upon reading a bumper sticker recently.  In fact, rather than turning, I followed behind the car to make sure I hadn’t misread it.  The bumper sticker read, “So Many Right Wing Christians, So Few Lions.”

  • Recycle wisely

    Dear Editor,

    On my walk today on Barranca Mesa there was an unusually huge number of blue recycle carts. So  I looked in about 10. There was almost nothing in most of them. Some were not quite 1/4 full. The full ones had corrugated cardboard in them. Yea!

    We need to save our county’s resources and put the carts out when mostly full. I’m hoping that since it is Presidents Day holiday that people put them out because they had nothing better to do.

  • Ed will be missed

    Dear Editor,

    It was with a certain amount of sadness, though not unexpected, that I read of Ed Grothus’ passing. I knew Ed best from the days when he had the Shalako Shop; indeed, my turquoise/silver watchband and my small turquoise/silver thunderbird bolo, both of which I’ve had since high school, came from the Shalako Shop. They have always been a tangible connection to Los Alamos no matter where I have roamed, and they remain a connection with Ed as well.

  • Comments upsetting

    Dear Editor,

  • FRIED LIGHT: An eye for an eyeball

    With a stiff upper lip, the man talked about all the competition for people’s eyeballs these days.

    “We’re not just competing with competitors,” he lamented, stepping around bunches of boxes of printed matter the other day. “It’s not just all the other print out there, it’s e-mail and the Internet, television and cable, CDs and DVDs and all the rest.”

    Sounds kind of like somebody in the newspaper business, doesn’t it?

  • Single-payer health system

    Dear Editor,

  • What is the right thing?

    Dear Editor,

    I am responding to your bold assertions that you made in your Friday Feb. 6, 2009, editorial, “It is Time to Do the Right Thing.”

  • Please, support labs

    Dear Editor,

    Our national research laboratories - Los Alamos, Sandia and Lawrence Livermore - are national treasures. Their physical plants and assemblies of some of our most talented scientists, engineers and technicians cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world.

    Yes, their primary directive has been military research. But technology-sharing programs have enabled their discoveries to be developed commercially for peaceful purposes. And they have been soliciting more and more contracts for nonmilitary research.
