I find it disturbing U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack will benefit from nearly $600,000 in advertising from a group led by Norm Coleman (“Norm Coleman-led group goes after Nolan with aggressive ad campaign,” Sept. 18).
I found no humor in the “Close to Home” strip published in the Sunday, Sept. 23 News Tribune Comics section. It depicted “communion dribble cups” in church. It is very sad that the body and blood of Jesus was made into a comic!
In his critique of a column I wrote, George Erickson suggested rebuilding more roads and bridges, spending more on renewables, and building thorium nuclear reactors (Erickson’s Aug. 29 column, “Call for more oil ignores the consequences,” was written in response to Westgard’s July 20 column, “Expansion of oil, natural gas industries offers a wealth of jobs”).
All right, my fellow Minnesotans, don’t be duped. We are pawns in a national conservative movement that is panicking about evolving social trends; it is evident by the inclusion of two illogical amendments that will be put in front of us in November.
