  • Thanksgiving for all faiths

    Thanksgiving for all faithsDear Editor,I am astonished by the deftness with which, using only a truncated historical example and a poor sports analogy, Pastor Gene Linzey was able to take Thanksgiving away from the non-Judeo-Christian citizens of this country (23 percent, according to most recent census data) in this past Friday’s “Bible Answers” column.With nary an answer from the Bible in sight, Linzey tells us that “anyone can celebrate Thanksgiving Day,” but “only those who worship and honor the Living God can tru

  • We must honor those who serve

    Dear Editor,

    John Pawlak has once again decided the best entre on the menu was his own foot. In his Nov. 13 letter, our prolific editorial campaigner informs us that the Congressional Medal of Honor is not being awarded often enough for war publicity, noting that only two of the most recent eight awards have been for service in Iraq or Afghanistan.

  • Veterans need real support

    Dear Editor,

  • Stop the Bypass Road

    Stop the Bypass Road

    Dear Editor,

    A new road is poised to open (see photo on p. 3 of Nov. 8 Los Alamos Monitor). From the top of West Road (near where it used to intersect State Road 4) you will be able to travel west, directly to the ski hill, bypassing LANL’s western guard station. DOE built this highway through TA-62, along a former road that accessed a large water tank.

  • Our options are being taken away

    Dear Editor,

    The kooks seem to be winning. Who is paying attention to what is going on around us?

    Prairie dogs have assumed an elevated status. This furry little rodent, carrier of the Black Plague virus, has managed to delay the construction of the Rail Runner track into Santa Fe and is increasing the cost of the project.

  • Are there no heroes?

    Dear Editor,

    This week, President Bush presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to eight people in recognition to their contributions in the arts, sciences and the pursuit of freedom. This award is the highest civilian award given by the White House.

  • We need real vision for LANL

    Dear Editor,

    I’m responding to the significant front-page coverage given to LANL-related views on Oct. 21.

  • What is happening in Iraq?

    Dear Editor,

    This is what is happening in Iraq.

    The natives in Iraq have finally wised up and realized that it is not to their advantage to kill one another. They are organizing to kill the occupiers. Remember, Dien Bien Phu and Saigon?

  • Tactic not helpful

    Dear Editor,

    Until the laboratory mandates definite dollar amounts employees should give to the United Way, based on their salaries and personal financial holdings, Mr. Sad and Dismayed should not use the unacceptable tactic of Shame-On-You for not donating more to that worthy charity.

  • Health care isn't simple issue

    Dear Editor,

    Mr. Dave’s letter citing horror stories of nationalized health care plans in other countries left me very confused. Is he saying that our health care situation is good, or that it’s just not as bad as it could be? Those are two very different stances. I do think it’s an issue well worth discussing – but both sides should be given reasonble credence and consideration.
