    Oct 8, 2020

    To the Editor: Capt. Wentz’s remarks on patriotism in the Sept. 24, 2020, edition of the Herald (Page A-4) are well taken.

Among other duties, I assisted in the burial of some 2,000 Marine Corps officers at Arlington National Cemetery. None of these men were either “suckers” or “losers.” All of them, individually, gave more for our country than has President “Bonespurs.” Our men and women in uniform today deserve a commander-i...

  • Changed Your Mind About Mail-In Voting? Take Your Ballot to the Polling Place

    Oct 8, 2020

If they’re savvy enough to ask for a provisional ballot, they’ll be able to cast that, but doing so will gum up the works, slow down lines, and deter others from voting. It is, of course, completely counterintuitive that you would need...
