LETTER: Gillespie is warmhearted; Fenton caters to gun lobby
Several years ago I told Alberder Gillespie that she should run for state legislature. I'm so glad she finally threw her hat in the ring. Many...

LETTER: Trump's ideas are hateful and uninformed
Kudos to Mitchell Vangsness for his letter regarding Donald Trump and immigration. It's great when young people get involved. And now Brian LeClair...

LETTER: Legislators have better things to attend to than bathroom legislation
There are some interesting letters in the March 30 Bulletin regarding the proposed legislation about where people get to pee.

LETTER: Objections to letters from elsewhere
Linda Stanton hopes I’m “paying full attention” to the fact that the Bulletin recently printed a letter from DFL Chair Ken Martin. Yes, I did notice - thank you, Ms. Stanton, for your concern. I no longer remember the topic, but I remember that it wasn’t personal bashing...

LETTER: Native-born Minnesotans use more Medicaid than immigrants
Sometimes a letter shows up that is so egregious you wonder if it’s worth a response. Mr. Scherbel (“Other states’ climates would be better for immigrants,” April 22) has concern for Minnesota’s immigrant population, and thinks they should go to states with a more “temperate...

LETTER: What happens if you compare taxes to milk
Brian Marum in a March 18 letter ("Please get you[sic] hands out of my wallet") says, "If a local grocer overcharged a liberal for milk and did not return it," there would be a protest. (Why only a liberal? Mr. Marum would not mind paying too much for his milk?) Anyway, he compares...

Letter: Sympathy for Mr. Lagoon
Poor Steve Lagoon. He tried to be honest about his party's problems, and look what happened -- he was rudely creamed by a pair of "proud Republicans" (Stanton/ Marum letter, June 10). As they themselves said, "[W]e do need leaders but with this kind of negativity, who would want...

Viewpoint: Editorials about newspapers were out of touch
I realize Fargo is not in Minnesota, but it's not exactly in China, either. So it seems that Mr. William Marcil, publisher and CEO of Forum Communications (based in Fargo, N.D. and which owns the Woodbury Bulletin along with two dozen other Minnesota newspapers, plus papers in the...

Viewpoint: A response to a rubuttal to a response
I would ask Steve Lagoon (Feb. 18 Viewpoint, Bulletin) to read a bit more carefully before he dashes off rebuttals, as I'm certainly not naive enough to claim that "there aren't millions of illegal immigrants working in America." And with regard to your labeling me as an "ostrich,"...

Viewpoint: Rebuttals to two readers' responses

Letter: 'Tired refrain' trotted out again
In his Jan. 28 Viewpoint article, Steve Lagoon trots out the tired refrain that "Millions of American workers are unemployed because illegal immigrants have taken their jobs." Studies, of course, have shown that this is untrue --and although I know a number of persons who have...

Letter: Don't condone what makes the world worse
Carol Turnbull (Bulletin, Dec. 10) thinks that I was not nice when I stated that a well-known Bulletin correspondent is "one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates." My response? I was merely pointing out what is demonstrably true. If Turnbull has doubts in this regard,...

Letter: Tired of the name-calling
As I said previously, I'm really tired of the "abortion debate." But I'm also tired of name-calling, which Mr. St. Martin engages in (again) when he refers to Ms. Denn as "one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates" (Viewpoint, Dec. 3). "Pro-life" is such a warm fuzzy term...

Viewpoint: Lagoon responds to critics of abortion Viewpoint
I offer the following as a response to those who criticized my opinion piece concerning President-elect Obama's views on abortion, beginning with Joyce Denn. Denn began her letter this way: "According to Steve Lagoon ("The Obama Irony," Bulletin, Nov. 19), Barack Obama voted to...
