Letters to the Editor

Let’s not be judgmental

To the Editor, Now that gay marriage has become well-established as law of the land, may the bigotry and hatred shown gays vanish entirely and may their unions prosper. We, the public, have learned much from their battles, only to be recognized as our brothers and sisters and gays have ...

Trump throws out the lies

To the Editor, Donald Trump will undoubtedly be recorded in the annals of history as the most colossal liar to ever occupy the White House. The president often is referred o as the commander in chief, but in the Donald's case, it would be more suitable if he were called the grifter and ...

What is more important?

Respect the country, flag

To the Editor, What is this world coming to when people don't have respect for the American flag? That's the trouble in the world today, if one thing isn't in favor of them, all they know is protesting. Who cares if you don't like the president of the United States, you live in the country, ...

Illegal immigration affects us

To the Editor, I suspect most West Virginians have little awareness of how illegal immigration affects their daily lives. I also suspect most West Virginians could care less, the exception being those citizens who have been victimized by this silent invasion. Most West Virginians' vision ...
