Letters to the Editor

February 22, 2018

Many letters to this newspaper seem to think the founding fathers had it all right when they wrote the Constitution. Wrong!

Other writers believe the Constitution was inspired by God. Well, that’s debatable. What is clear is that it was written by a group of privileged white men, who took…

Opinions abound in the news and in the media. But do you want someone else to determine what you believe? Labels are easy to produce and hard to remove. Critical thinking goes beyond parroting what we hear or read. It defines us as intelligent, caring people who earnestly want to know the truth and…

I would like to explain my view of the the two economic systems, in their purest forms, that are debated in this country.

Thank you for running the recent Fayetteville Observer editorial about the demise of the film industry in North Carolina. But I don't buy the premise that Republicans in Raleigh have not given movie makers incentives.

They could not have happened without the full…

By the time you read this, more revelations on Clinton corruption and felonious abuses at the FBI and the Department. of Justice will have surfaced. Facts surrounding the biggest scandal in modern U.S. history are interwoven like a Chinese finger trap. Julia Manning put forth a great article…

I read in the Telegram N.C. Sen. Rick Horner’s comment that education will be one of his targeted areas in the legislature. The biggest need is for the Republican legislature to impose some accountability on our educrats. We still see important functions lacking funding while more and more…

How do you feel about the Event Center? After stiff opposition, we now see the Event Center etching a huge silhouette on our city’s skyline. Have you looked at the transformation taking place downtown and in the surrounding area? It is worth a trip to see it for yourself.
