Trump policies good for country
In my opinion, the country is at a crossroads, where we either become more like the rest of the world, or we remain a country of opportunity for all.
Gross unfairness in death penalty
Kudos to Mary Ann Etling for her fine letter in the Tribune-Star on Monday, Sept. 21, protesting the death penalty. She is a credit to her family, one that has been dedicated to social justice for several generations.
