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...

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...

Letters to the editor

November 26, 2019

Letters to the editor

Letters to the Editor To the editor: Regarding Ed Rohde’s Sept. 26 comments directed at me: they remind me of a conversation I had with my husband years ago.

Letters to the editor

November 20, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: This is in response to Pat Brooks’ Oct. 3 letter on “old-thinking people” complaining that the government is taking away women’s freedoms. I agree with you 100 percent, Pat, that Jesus said to love one another. How is that love being accomplished by...
