Telling the truth doesn’t make one a racist

Telling the truth doesn’t make one  a racist

To the Editor: Kudos to Bill Quinn and Gene McIntyre for their remarks on the Ferguson, Mo.  protests in the Keizertimes in the Nov. 5 issue. They studied the facts and addressed them candidly and honestly. I suspect some will label them racist, when they simply stated the facts. Meanwhile, across the country, thousands haven’t […]

Law enforcement

Law enforcement

To the Editor: If people of all colors would obey lawful commands of law-enforcement officers they would not be subjected to any kind of harsh treatment. It seems to me that these people have attitude problems or suffer from mental problems. They may even feel they are entitled. Sure, there are some cops that have […]

Shrinking the epidemic map

Shrinking the epidemic map

By MICHAEL GERSON My college roommate—the most immediately likable person I’ve ever met, a man who would now be such a present to the world—died of AIDS at the age of 30. Back then, people with the disease did not so much die as fade, becoming gaunt and ghostly images of themselves, as the virus […]
