Letter: Crawford left out key data from 2001 attacks

Tom Crawford cited 10 deaths by non-Muslims in a 21-year period. I can think of a single incident that cost the American public 3,000-plus citizens as a result of their actions of Sept. 11, 2001. It was just the tip of the iceberg. Lousy reporting and patriotism.

Letter: Evangelical Christians’ support for Trump defies logic, true faith

Donald Trump has alienated Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, blacks, women, the disabled and the media. Is there any group left? Apparently he is good with white men and 71 percent of evangelical Christians. I am completely dumbfounded about the Christians. I don't get it.

Editorial: Enota inaction is building frustration

Whether in business or in government, it's often best to make a decision and live with the result rather than dither over it forever. While bad choices surely are to be regretted, nothing is worse than sitting on your hands and making no decision at all. The old phrase used by card players is "Think long, think wrong."
