Trump needs professional help: Letter to the Editor

2017-05-19T17:34:24Z

It has become increasingly apparent that there is something seriously wrong with President Donald J. Trump. He wasn't always so irrational, or inarticulate.

Willoughby Lowe's article: Letter to the Editor

2016-10-24T19:41:39Z

I don't understand how The Plain Dealer can describe a crime suspect as "white," (Officer fatally shoots man outside Willoughby Lowe's); but cannot describe a suspect as "black."

TV commercials: Letter to the Editor

2016-05-26T18:55:21Z

The recent TV commercials by "Priorities USA" are in horribly bad taste!

Get the popcorn ready if Cruz is nominated: Letter to the Editor

2016-03-21T16:46:59Z

In his never-ending battle to salvage the GOP, Kevin O'Brien's first choice as savior is Canadian-born Ted Cruz. I hope and pray that this comes to fruition, as I cannot wait to witness this proposed fitting end to the Republican clown-car...
