Your View


Instead of fighting, we need to realize we're all on the same team

Republicans are counting on President Obama to do the right thing for the greater good of the country. But, ironically, Republicans see that as one of his main weaknesses to be exploited. I guess if President Obama showed the same resolve as Republicans at the expense of our nation's vital economic interests, then Republicans would see that as strength.

A letter to the president

Mr. Obama, a massive kill-off of the citizens of the United States is taking place and billionaire Warren Buffett is right when he declares that he and his fellow "Buffetteers" are winning. Is he also correct when he states that we aren't seeing this? The truth at the door is in the house.

She had her problems, but she's still human

I was a little thrown back by Gary Wilson's unempathetic and inhumane response to Amy Winehouse's death ("Your View," July 28). I am not sure if Mr. Wilson is attacking her, the media, or both, but regardless of that, it astonishes me that anyone could be so crass about another individual's life. 

All life should be considered precious, and one should not be judged so harshly for their misgivings. I'm shocked at such an attack, (consider if this had been your daughter). It is just another case of someone thrown into the media circus unprepared. We did not know her and should not judge her as if we did.
