Re: “Chris Rock and a Hard Place

Thanks Bruce. Once again a level-headed look at a tragic situation. Life sucks. People are heartless. Dogs are awesome.

Re: “Pictures, or It Didn’t Happen

It does seem that it takes a picture or a video to make it "real". A question to ask ourselves, then, is why does ISIS want us to get angry and come after them by posting the beheadings? They're smart and perceptive and highly sophisticated in matters of marketing their message. I am sure this provocation was done with a great deal of forethought. So if they want us to engage with them militarily, why should we give them what they want? Even if we don't fully understand their motives, their goal is clear - - get the West to "come to them". Or as many a military strategist has figured out before, an effective strategy for a smaller force is to grab the enemy by the belt buckle and don't let go. I say we leave them to themselves.

Re: “Letter From the Editor

I consider myself a Progressive Conservative, which in this country means a conservative liberal, or is it a liberal conservative? I don't know, somewhere in the middle. Since only about 15 to 30% of the people vote in this country - more or less depending on the election, I wouldn't worry too much about what anyone says. There's a very good chance they don't vote anyway.

In fact, I'd be thrilled if 15 to 30% of the people even know where North Dakota is on a map.

Liberals hated Bush and bad mouthed him at any chance. Conservatives hate Obama and bad mouth him at any chance. The rest of us just watch and shake our heads.
