Obama milepost

A president's first hundred days is a symbolic, mostly inconsequential, milestone whose provenance dates to the flurry of activity President Franklin D. Roosevelt inspired upon taking office during the depths of the Great Depression. While the nascent days of most of his successors' terms pale ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Around 1940 I wrote President Franklin D. Roosevelt that the U.S. should help Great Britain or we might have to fight Germany by ourselves. The Lend-Lease program began and we loaned 50 World War I Navy destroyers to Britain. Around late 1940 or early 1941 ...

Letters

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Are you angry about our current financial crisis? Has it personally affected you or your family, perhaps a close friend or neighbor? The truth is that financially and otherwise it has harmed us all. It could have all been avoided. If not before, we now ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: I keep reading letters saying how much people who move here want to keep the Shenandoah Valley in peaceful, rural, agricultural farms. I wonder if they realize all these farms are owned by 60- to 93-year-old people who cannot continue to farm much longer, ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: We, the residents of Warren County, are in a position to take a unique step of historical recognition. Here's the story. Just more than 50 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decreed that the then-in-place educational practice called "separate but equal." ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: I recently learned that consideration is being given to the possible renaming of the Luray Avenue Middle School in Front Royal, formerly known as the Warren County High School. I became a student there when the building first opened its doors in 1939, ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: Evidence alleges that war crimes from the Bush II era may have been authorized by senior government officials. The release of all government policy evidence is important because for a nation to remain at liberty the citizens must be fully aware of the ...

Letters

Editor Northern Virginia Daily Sir: The Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., stands as a shrine for humanity's inhumanity to itself. It is a permanent monument of the world's refusal to hear the pleas of atrocities. Had the world listened to those reporting the mass murder of Jews, ...
