Letter: Democrats have abandoned their roots
The latest protests are reminiscent of the 1960s, except for the glaring fact that the '60s protests were all about being anti-establishment and anti-war. The young and idealistic protesters that populated the street marches and demonstrations are no longer with us. Via the opportunities...

Letter: Standing with standing rock
"Protests are not the same," the Grand Forks Herald's editorial printed in the RE Dec. 3&4, is a first-class "whitewash" of a contemporary environmentally and culturally significant concern.
