Electoral college should stay, writer argues; states get an equal say

Letters to the editor

December 17, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: Angie Dunlap, in an Oct. 31 letter to the editor, supported the idea of electing a president via a national popular vote — i.e., a pure or direct democracy. I disagree — our current electoral system should remain in place. The founding fathers of our country...

Reader asks Green Park to vote out the city’s letter-writing alderman

Letters to the editor

December 11, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: No one needs to bother reading the text of Green Park Ward 1 Alderman Michael Broughton’s letters anymore because they are all the same — hate filled, ignorant and so totally out of touch with the American people. When I read the headline in his Oct. 18 letter, I decid...

December 10, 2019

Letters to the Editor  To the editor: I am responding to The Call’s Oct. 24 letter by Mr. Joe Spezia Sr., “Join the ‘smart and rich’ and vote against every type of tax increase.” I am in complete agreement with Mr. Spezia, but would like to change the battle cry to “Vote no and close yo...

Letters to the editor

December 5, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: Here’s all you need to know about global warming and the dangers of being underwater in the next 12 years.

Writer saddened by Broughton’s letter, defends actions of Christians

Letters to the editor

December 4, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: It was so sad to read Green Park Ward 1 Alderman Michael Broughton’s Oct. 7 letter. Especially given that he is a community leader.

Levee is the flooding culprit, as flooding victim in Sunset Hills argues

Letters to the editor

December 4, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch report (9-1-2016) headline reads, “Valley Park levee was built too high, and neighbors paid the price.” That headline tells the story. Glenn Koenen’s Oct. 10 letter doesn’t contain one fact to disprove this truth. He tells us he ...

Reader applauds ‘king of comedy’ for writing to The Call letters page

Letters to the editor

December 3, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: It’s not very often that we get a master of satire writing to The Call, but Bruce Raisch proved to be the king of comedy in his Oct. 10 letter. His “comments” about illegal aliens were pretty funny. Having said that, it’s almost cruel to imply that some pe...

Reader ‘taken aback’ by letter on old-thinking, young-thinking people

Letters to the editor

December 3, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: I was somewhat taken aback by a letter The Call published Oct. 3. Am I alone in this? I am referring to a letter posted by someone who tells us that she is concerned about young people learning the ways of the older generation. You know those people who were brou...

Writer has some ideas about how to handle children seeking asylum

Letters to the editor

November 26, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: In response to Michael Broughton’s Oct. 17 letter, I agree with his concern for all the innocent children that are seeking asylum and die on the way. We need to make sure their parents have abortions before they come up seeking asylum. That way they won’t su...

Climate change is more to blame for weather extremes, not abortion

Letters to the editor

November 26, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: This is a response to Jan Tucker’s Oct. 10 letter to The Call entitled “Nations punished with weather, mass shootings because of abortion.” I believe her letter is factually incorrect and promotes hatred between pro-life and pro-choice groups. Climate chang...
