Letter: Acceptance, tolerance, love lead to peace

Letter: We should simply say, ‘I am an American’
To the Editor: Ever since I can remember I’ve always referred to myself as an American. I can’t remember when I was young anyone referring to themselves as anything other than an American. There weren’t sites like Ancestry Searches or emphasis on finding out your family history....

Editorial: States’ gun laws quietly stand
The states’ rights crowd, often the same folks who are Second Amendment absolutists, should be pleased with last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision on state gun laws. The court declined without comment to hear appeals to strict gun control laws in New York and Connecticut, signalling...
