On our faker-in-chief

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Yes, my friends on the right, we have been in­un­dated with fake news for the past cou­ple of years. Of course, I be­lieve the No. 1 fake in the news is none other than Trump him­self.

Charles Is­grig in his re­cent let­ter got it right. Trump promised to drain the swamp, but he has re­placed it with a cesspool.

I think we all have Trump fa­tigue. BETTY IRENE McSWAIN

Fort Smith con­sid­ered the scarab bee­tle, also known as the dung bee­tle, to be sa­cred. Moses, with a lit­tle help from above, sicced flies, gnats and lo­custs on the Egyp­tians try­ing to per­suade Pharaoh to re­lease the He­brews.

Pests they may be, but they can be in­ter­est­ing lit­tle crea­tures. A few we con­sider ben­e­fi­cial to hu­mans. The honey bee, lady­bug and dragon­fly come to mind, and what a poor world it would be without but­ter­flies and fire­flies.
