    Those who fail to learn from history will repeat it: Letters

    Those who fail to learn from history will repeat it When the “Final Solution” started in 1930s Germany, there was a largely passive response. People were rounded up and disappeared.

    Trump will do anything to keep his base on board: Letters

    Trump will do anything to keep his base on board The sad truth is that in 2017 we have a president who puts the racist views of many of his supporters aside to make sure they remain loyal voters. Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke is very vocal in his support of Donald Trump. Yet, the president said he doesn’t know much about Duke, but welcomes the forgotten-man (white) voters that Duke brings with him, who want to take the country back. The evidence is...

    Filibuster gives minority party too much power Re “Founders would have frowned upon filibuster” (Editorial, July 30): This is the first time I have seen any mention in a major paper’s editorial that the filibuster is contrary to the purpose of the Founding Fathers.
