What took so long to save the horses?

Incorrect use of words perverts history

Talk of war with Iran 'insane'

Dear Editor, In the melee of news coverage of the drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, the point was made that the Trump base in the Midwest would support a consequent war on Iran. The assumption is mind-blowing until one realizes that a...

Rent is not too high

Dear Editor, Frequently I hear the complaint, “rents are too high,” or “housing prices are too high.” Are the people making these claims thinking clearly? The reason housing costs are difficult for people to afford is often because wages are...
