Local view: Ridicule extremists, not all Muslims
The recent assassination of cartoonists of the publication Charlie Hebdo was deplorable. Producing humor that helps us deal with the day-to-day stress of modern living should not be a life-threatening occupation — even if it is the traditional French “gouaille” humor, which...

Reader's view: Let St. Louis County voters decide sales tax increase
The News Tribune’s Nov. 17 “Our View” editorial, headlined “County can go slow with new sales tax,” was a well-written opinion. A thought I offer: Why not let the people vote on a St. Louis County sales tax increase? In the past couple of years voters were able to vote...

Reader's view: Salon’s quick closure sure felt like a crime
Like others, I have a gift certificate from Elysium Salon and Day Spa (“Elysium’s closing leaves customers in the lurch,” Nov. 10). I called Duluth police and tried to report it as a theft. The officer told me it was civil and to file in small-claims court. But it costs $75...

Reader's view: Postal facility closure won’t hamper communication
I wish to comment on the question of the future of the Duluth postal facility. A substantial portion of the income of this facility and the Postal Service in general comes from first-class mail. Much of this used to be in the form of personal letters written to friends and relatives...

Local view: Will bin Laden be the winner?
Do you remember Osama bin Laden? He was the head of an Islamist militant group and was killed by U.S. Special Forces on May 2, 2011, in Pakistan; his body was buried in the Arabian Sea. He had formed and had been head of al-Qaeda, the Wahhabi militant organization that drove Russia...

Reader's view: Oberstar got things done with compassion
Although the late Jim Oberstar defeated me for the DFL congressional nomination in 1974, he always was a friend. Perhaps that was best illustrated by an incident that occurred during the war in Iraq. While my son, Grant, a recent West Point graduate nominated by a Missouri congressman,...

Reader's view: CNN is the king of coverage overkill
First it was CNN’s nonstop, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week coverage of Malaysia Flight 370 that seemed to go on for weeks and weeks ad infinitum. Now the latest tragedy involves a disturbed young man killing six people because he figured nobody liked him so he vented his anger...

Should US rescue Nigerian girls? No: emotion shouldn't drive foreign policy
Just a few years ago, recall, President Obama was saying “al-Qaeda is on the run” and that the terrorist umbrella organization was “on the path to defeat” in Iraq and Afghanistan. He noted emerging threats in Africa and the Arabian peninsula, however. Turns out, al-Qaeda...

Reader's view: Faceless entities threaten Northland environment
It is past time for the people of the Northland to awaken to an existential threat we all face. Three faceless, foreign entities currently going by the names of PolyMet, GTAC and Enbridge stand ready to deliver widespread and deliberate pollution to our environment. Anyone who has...

Our view: Take back the night, march for safety
The march that draws attention to violence against women has been around seemingly forever, for more than four full decades now. It happens every year. So we grow numb to it. We tune it out. We don’t participate. But what we’re ignoring is the gut-wrenching reality that in the...
