Open letter to Congressman (08/23/09)
To the Editor: Dear Congressman: I grow weary of the dance, the duck and cover that you and your office appear to be performing. Your refusal to face your constituents is somewhat alarming. While it may be alarming, it certainly is telling: You have a different opinion of what is needed than what the majority of your constituents prefer and you don't want to hear us or change your mind. You feel you are correct and you don't want to have to defend your position...

Health care reform needed (08/23/09)

Not in favor of 'cap and trade' (08/23/09)
