Letter to the editor: Hoping Thorpe’s bill goes nowhere

Rep. Bob Thorpe is trying to block students from voting where they go to school by introducing HB 2461, which would ban students’ use of an address for voting purposes at which they don’t reside for 12 months each year. Thorpe’s argument for this bill is one-sided in favor of businesses who are opposed to […]

Letter to the editor: HR-3 should be passed immediately

I believe HR-3 should be passed immediately. Arizonans should not accept paying significantly more for healthcare than the rest of the developed world. House Resolution 3, the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, will help reduce exorbitant drug prices. This legislation is backed by our Congressman, Tom O’Halleran, passing successfully out of the […]

Letter to the editor: System of government on trial in the Senate

History will record that Donald Trump was impeached. Will it also record that he received a fair trial in the Senate? Have we become irreparably partisan and corrupt, blind to the truth, serving a politician rather than the nation? Isn’t that treason, a betrayal of our country just as much as anything of which Trump […]

Earlier (Friday, Jan. 17) Manu Raju – a CNN reporter – asked Senator McSally whether the Senate should consider new evidence for the impeachment trial. McSally answered: “You’re a liberal hack!” Yes, we understand, McSally is on edge. And there is a simple reason for McSally’s brisk response: She took Raju’s question as a personal, […]

Letter to the editor: Another nail in the coffin of bipartisanship

How dismaying to learn on PBS’ Horizon that Senator McSally’s calling a professional reporter a “liberal hack” was a fundraising stunt. Did she REALLY already have T-shirts printed up, as reported? This type of cynical move calls into question her integrity on other important issues she has addressed, such as sexual abuse in the military. […]

Letter to the editor: An open letter to Senator McSally

Dear Senator McSally, Your service to our country is highly honorable. Despite enduring sexual assaults in school and undoubtedly discrimination in the U.S. Air Force, you rose to the rank of Colonel. You have fought for women’s rights and other needed changes. And you know right from wrong. Soon, the Senate will convene in the […]

Letter to the editor: Surprised by lack of standards for a president

After reading a recent letter to the editor, it appears that some people have minimum standards for voting for a president that do not include honesty, integrity, the rule of law, understanding and adherence to the Constitution, support and teamwork with our international allies, an understanding of the disastrous implications of global warming and a […]

Letter to the editor: Senate bill to ban uranium mining the right call

A Senate bill to prevent any additional uranium mining near the Grand Canyon National Park, as sponsored by Arizona Sen. Krysten Sinema, should unequivocally be supported (Senate bill would van mining claims around the Grand Canyon, A3, 12/21/19, AZ Daily Sun). Having diagnosed and treated hundreds of patients with a variety of cancers who live […]
