Call it what it is

Editor: The incident at Charlottesville by white supremacists was a real tragedy. I was disappointed that President Trump did not mention the group name of the activists or even mention white supremacists by name.

It’s later than you think

Editor: With the many terror attacks that has occurred in the past few weeks, it boggles the mind to see the elected Donald Trump’s efforts to properly vet the Muslim people who wish to come into the United States of America. It is true that all Muslims are not terrorists but it is equally true

Go figure

Editor: Recently, Kathy Griffin posed with the likeness of a decapitated head of Donald Trump and put it on social media. She received backlash from both conservatives and liberals.
