Letter to the editor: This is enough to make a Minnesotan pull up stakes
As a long-time resident of Minnesota, I would like to voice my concern about the budget proposal that recently passed the House and Senate. The tax package includes new taxes that were intended to target high income Minnesotans, but will actually greatly impact small businesses. Small...

Letter to the editor: Kieffer's vote will be overturned upon second coming
Last week Rep. Andrea Kieffer voted to legalize homosexual marriage for the first time in Minnesota since Constantius II, son of the first Christian Emperor Constantine, outlawed homosexuality in the Western world in AD 342. Her vote may prevail, everywhere except in our district,...

Letter to the editor: Face it: we have a gun problem in America
