After returning from Gaza this past September, I am in a funk. Israel is currently massacring my friends in the Gaza Strip during this past two weeks. Before it is over, Israel will kill over a thousand Gazans and critically wound thousands more; this is unconscionable.
I’m confused by the message behind Judge John Mitchell’s comments about the murder of Dana Brinnon by her husband (Jan. 7). Mitchell claims that Brinnon “wouldn’t have been in that position if she didn’t have borderline personality disorder that was ...
Three weeks ago the city of Spokane encountered two feet of snow in 24 hours. It is still trying to catch up. Yes, we have had an incredible amount despite prognostications that this winter season would be normal after last year’s near record total snow.
Mr. Freese (“It’s a matter of science,” Jan.4) seems to think that human-induced “climate change” is based on sound science, since only “a few experts have doubts.” Since when was science up for a vote?
The news has been nonstop on the death of John Travolta’s son. I call him that rather than by his name, as that is the primary way the media refers to him. I am sorry for his parents; it is a great loss to them, but what exactly does it mean to me? Nothing. Does anyone out there know who the following are?
Regarding Dary Liepelt’s letter, “First came marriage,” Jan. 3, just because we grew up in a time where people were forced to get married because of accidental pregnancies does not mean that is the case anymore. At least the Palin girl’s boyfriend is making a commitment to do the right thing. And if it wasn’t because of Sarah Palin’s political position you wouldn’t even be writing about this.
As a supervisor at a post office in north Spokane, the past weeks have proven acts of dedication and professionalism that have humbled me. Carriers hiking in eight blocks of mail with 35-pound satchels through waist-deep snow, eight hours a day, has drained them physically and mentally.
I share the pain and outrage that Jeanie Smith referred to in her letter to the editor (“Take a lesson from nature,” Jan. 2) in regards to the loss of another child’s life. It often seems like we are more concerned about animal abuse than child abuse.
To evoke duality to the maximum: Levi Hanson (“Mailbag full of hostility,” Jan. 4) is positively correct; negatively wrong, or positively incorrect; negatively right. There is one thing obvious, though. A person seeking to attain positive enlightenment in life is ...
Jenauh, I am so deeply saddened by the death of your little one, Izayah. Do you know his name means salvation? Our community comes together and grieves with your family, and I hope we can also come together and help ...
I have noticed our local grocery stores are attempting to comply with the Country of Origin Labeling, which went into effect on Sept. 30. But I am disappointed some labels say, “Product of U.S., Canada, and Mexico.”
J. Gary Post says that Democrats are responsible for the mortgage and subprime loan fiasco (Letters, Jan. 3). He goes on to list a series of dates and “request” by George W. Bush and others in his administration that would have stopped this mess.
When the punishment for being a serial killer and the punishment for stealing small amounts of money are the same, there is something very, very wrong with our system. Washington’s mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole are not reasonable, not decent, not justifiable and certainly not affordable.
