Letters to the editor
Just the facts, ma’am
Dear Editor: I think the editorial board should give the readers their opinions on matters important to the community.
My problem is when a reporter, in this case Rachael Oswald, takes off her reporters hat and puts on the hat of a columnist. It just blurs the lines.
Now, we all know that the vast majority of the media are in the tank for Obama; there is no doubt about it.
So now we know that Oswald is also way out there in left field after her jab of Gov. Palin.
We don’t need to know where a reporter stands on issues.
In fact we don’t even want to know. I think Oswald needs to stay in the news-
room or be given a column.
Dear Editor: The responses on the ongoing meltdown of the economy are amazing. The Republicans want to weather these “corrections.” The Democrats want to blame the Republicans.
Neither one of them recognizes that unrestrained greed, whether for entitlement programs, military contracts or real estate loans, is at the root of the current economic failure. What we need is government that recognizes our shortcomings as people and

sets up controls and limits on ourselves. That was the genius of the founders of this country. They did not imagine us as any better than we are (unlike Obama), nor were they foolishly trusting (unlike McCain).
We should ask the candidates what they will expect of us as individuals, organizations and corporations, to make things right again. So far all I have heard is that somebody else will pay for it (Democrats) or there will be pie in the sky by and by (Republicans). Those answers don’t work for me, nor will they work for the country as a whole I suspect.
