Letters to the Editor

LETTER: Obama manifests the slave caricature

Obama's statement that he will work hard for the country alludes to an idea that has been historically reduced to and defined by slaves and the working class, not to leaders of our country.

 

LETTER: Questions still loom around Hickman incident

Members of the community should be asking many pertinent questions in order to protect  the school environment in the future.

LETTER: Missouri fans exhibit lack of class

Fans of all ages showed poor etiquette while attending the Nebraska-Missouri game.

LETTER: Columnist has misconstrued facts of 2000 election

Contrary to a recent column in the Missourian, a study on the 2000 election did not confirm Bush's victory.

LETTER: Policy, not race, determines choice for president

I am not voting for a candidate because of the color of his skin. I am a conservative who believes government cannot solve every problem.

LETTER: Vaslow distorted Obama's health care plan

Obama's health care plan actually helps more people get coverage

Kelly's record qualifies him to represent 24th District

Chris Kelly's experience and record on bipartisan politics makes him the best candidate.

LETTER: Take time to question Obama

Are we about to elect a rock star or a president?  Do we think that being a polished performer is more important than consistent, unwavering service to our country?  Do we really know enough about this new phenomenon named Barack Obama to elect him to the highest post of our country?

LETTER: Abortion shouldn't determine vote for president

Pro-lifers should consider other issues before feeling compelled to vote Republican.

LETTER: Reject Proposition B, doesn't include standards for accountability

One issue on Missouri's ballot — Proposition B — will ask voters to decide whether the state should create a "Quality Home Care Council" to organize workers hired to provide personal care services. Voters should reject this proposition as "too good to be true."

LETTER: Prop C increases use of renewable sources

If approved, the proposition would require Missouri's investor-owned utility companies to purchase or generate 15 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2021.

LETTER: Tailgating trash creates piles of problems

Garbage leftover from home football games will take its toll on the earth.

LETTER: Tigers fans' treatment of visitors embarrassing

Food was thrown at them, nasty names and obscenities were yelled and after the game they were physically threatened by a group of MU fans wielding a baseball bat.

LETTER: Sen. Graham does not deserve re-election

Sen. Chuck Graham violated voters' trust with prior arrests.

LETTER: MU fans are friendly and welcoming

Football visitors remark on kindness of Missouri fans during Saturday's game.

LETTER: Tucker Prairie should be treasured, not forgotten

The Missourian's article on Tucker Prairie is a melancholy reminder of troubling changes to Missouri life and land.

LETTER: Bailout will not improve economy

Robin Hood was considered an outlaw because he robbed the rich for the poor. What do you call the rich who rob the poor for the rich? This is what the $700 billion bailout for the rich is doing.

LETTER: McCain presidency would pose threat to farmers, ethanol standards

McCain has consistently voted against ethanol standards, which have not only promoted clean air but have also provided extra income for rural communities.

LETTER: Don't believe the hype about arctic drilling

They tell us: "We're only going to drill in 2,000 acres of the Arctic Refuge — We swear!" But Big Oil's "2,000 acres" will sprawl across the entire Arctic Refuge just like 1,800 acres of Turnpike slices all across New Jersey.

LETTER: Voting for Chris Kelly will help squelch partisan policymaking

My reason for supporting Chris Kelly as 24th District representative is a distaste for single-party rule at any level of government.
