Letters to the Editor

Letters to the Editor

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: We are being represented by an administration and Congress that are so insecure that they feel that they need to stifle dissent. This is undemocratic. It represents national socialism at its very worst. What will be next, "book burnings"? The simple truth ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: On Feb. 5 a group of students and concerned citizens protested outside of the CarMax Lending center on South Main Street in hopes of raising awareness about Senate Bill 1490, which was to be voted on the following day in both the House and the Senate. This ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Where is Virginia, the home of those who forged the Constitution, in this sad time? Edward Nathaniel Bell, a Jamaican national, was executed Feb. 19 for capital murder of a Winchester police officer. His execution ends a case still deserving of ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Sad but true, the last vestige in the Edinburg-Woodstock area (at least to my knowledge) of pure unleaded regular gasoline has recently disappeared. Yep, now we're 100 percent stuck with the diluted, ethanol-added crap. Did you know that a large number of ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: I am writing to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the coverage your newspaper and reporter Ben Orcutt gave to the 50th commemoration ceremony held at Skyline High School on Feb. 21, honoring the students who integrated Warren County High School ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: The current health-care system is not meeting the needs of most Americans. Individuals and families are faced with overwhelming financial burdens when treating both "typical" medical needs and unexpected medical traumas. Due to the high cost of health care, ...

Letters to the Editor

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: You supported me as a Gulf War veteran with undiagnosed illness. Now support troops from Shenandoah veterans. As the president sends more troops to Afghanistan and focuses our energies on the danger in the region, we are reminded that our military is ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: The town of Front Royal has announced that it requires its police chief to provide an atmosphere of public safety that is dedicated to town residents. Yes, with the police it could be an academic question as to how a person is in danger, but, of course, ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: It is amazing how incredibly naïve and gullible supposedly intelligent people like the John Fustos of this world are. The myth that Hitler was an atheist has been diligently articulated by religious apologists like the ones quoted by Fusto for so long ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: This is in regard to your new obituary policy and other cost-cutting measures of the Daily. I realize your need for cutting costs and do actually like the new paper size and layout. The comics seem unable to find a home location, but I can live with having ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Where are the Republicans? Obama makes a video and speaks to the Iranian people and its government for reconciliation. The Iranian government sends a public response that the "Iranian people must receive an apology for American support of the shah of Iran ...

Scrambled budget debate

The Congressional Budget Office's projection of deficits sharply higher than the Obama administration's estimates over the next decade scrambled the budget debate in Congress. Moderate Democrats, already uneasy about White House predictions of a nearly $7 trillion deficit over 10 years, were ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: I have resolved to write about spiritual insights, though recent letters prompt me to address the Bush cabal one last time. Bush campaigned in 1999, squawking about the economic doom. Eight years later he leaves his mess to whoever takes his place -- he is ...

An ultimatum for Detroit

Thrusting the federal government deeply into the workings of the troubled U.S. automotive industry, President Obama gave a do-or-die ultimatum to General Motors and Chrysler: Restructure pronto or expect no more government aid. Rejecting as inadequate the two companies' restructuring plans, ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: It seems to me that congressional ability is available to guide us through the difficult situations handed to us by the Bush league. Of course, politicians make many errors when they attempt to take care of a wonderful country like our USA. They are so busy ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Edmund Burke's prophetic words sometimes help only to make us feel how truly impotent we are when confronted by the machine politics presently disassembling our republic. Whether ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Suzanne Roulston wrote a letter (March 5 issue) thanking Shentel for support of the summer school enrichment program for Shenandoah County Public Schools in summer 2008. The school division, as well as parents and students, greatly appreciated the $22,000 ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: In the next few months, most people will drive through a highway work zone. It may happen on the morning commute to the office or on a long trip to the beach. You'll notice the orange cones, caution signs, large trucks and equipment and white hard hats. But ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: These words of wisdom are from the book "It's Easy Being Green: A Handbook for Earth Friendly Living," by Crissy Trask. Things being what they are, I thought they would look good in the editorial section, for a change. "The problems that exist in the world ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: This message is for those of you who voted to kill the Strasburg Rescue Squad. I can't believe that such an asinine, shameful, etc., thing has taken place. First, a question. While rampantly approving new construction, did it ever occur to you that you ...
