So many questions!

  Dear editor, Once again, America has experienced terrorism. Once again, President Obama refuses to label it for what it was. Despite a Muslim swearing allegiance to ISIS, Obama refuses to call it radical, Islamic terrorism. To him, it’s a hate crime against the LGBT community and a gun-control failure, not what the rest of …

All too dumbed-down

  Differs on Trump   Dear editor: John “Doc” Crawford stated in his May 21 letter that Donald Trump has a “lack of tolerance for Muslims.” He then said that “for all Christian voters, this should demonstrate an inconsistency with Christian principles, ethics and values.” I must beg to differ with him somewhat upon this …

Kennedy, Jr., February 22, 2016   In part because my father was murdered by an Arab, I’ve made an effort to understand the impact of U.S. policy in the Mideast and particularly the factors that sometimes motivate bloodthirsty responses from the Islamic world against …

Once upon a time

    The name “Mission: Meeting” is sort of an inside joke for missionaries and MKs (children of missionaries are called “missionary kids” or “mishkids”) who endured endless¹ “mission meetings” (planning and business meetings). It also conveys the idea that this project’s mission is to allow web site visitors to “meet” real people of the …

How can I respond in 500 words

Dear editor, The good doctor-chairman complains that he cannot adequately explain himself within the constraints of this newspaper’s 500-word limit, but let’s see if we cannot concisely summarize the essence of all recent regressive rants: God good. Guns good. Baby Jesus good. God bless Bibi Netanyahu and George Bush. War good. Torture good. Ronald Reagan …
