"Additionally and most importantly, until our “healthcare industry'' chooses to put patients over profit we are destined to continue to lose the best of the best and we’ll be sorry when you or I need someone to greet, treat, care, educate, and console our families."

So you can't see the difference then. Yes, the virus appears to be here to stay for the foreseeable future. That should change your way of thinking, at least it does mine. Here's a link, hot off the press about delta return in the UK, which has a track record of seeding new variants: http…

All 3 of today's letters to the editor can be summarized as having good intentions, but are supported by flawed arguments. This is where the proverb "the road to "hades" (the correct word is profane apparently and too harsh for our eyes) is paved with good intentions" applies. It is not t…

So far as showing solidarity for our elected school board, isn't that rather antithetical to critical thinking? In other words, we are being exhorted to all think the same way. Well who put who in charge to tell me how to think? Isn't critical thinking an individual exercise and people wi…
