    Letter: Health care

    Articles in the April 9 Statesman about free medical clinics and difficulty veterans are having getting medical appointments shows why we need universal health care. I worked as a primary care physician at Terry Reilly Health Services for 22 years, where 65 percent of our patients had no health ...

    Letter: Child support bill

    I was shocked to read in the April 11 paper how that the presence of Muslims and their Sharia law in the state of Idaho through the tabling of SB 1067 are preventing 400,000 parents and children from receiving $200 million a year for poor children in our state because SB 1067 would allow us to use...

    Letter: Legislature

    The Idaho Legislature’s decision to shelve Medicaid redesign is fiscally irresponsible and morally reprehensible. Experts of all political stripes say that because the Legislature failed to act, more than 400 Idahoans will die needlessly each year. The debunked “death panels”...

    Letter: Otter

    Such an irony. Our governor, who is always tooting his horn about defending the Idaho Constitution, will henceforth be known not as the Great Defender, but as the Great Manipulator.

    Letter: Public lands

    Letter: Legislature

    I was born in Rupert. I have lived in Idaho for 35 years. Never have I been so embarrassed by our Legislature. These people are not representative of thinking human beings. I am embarrassed to be an Idahoan. What a bunch of self-serving rednecks.

    Letter: VA

    Congratulations on The Associated Press hit piece on the Boise VA that you published April 9.

    Letter: St. Luke’s

    There is nothing plain and simple about the St. Luke’s takeover of the beautiful East End area. I have watched as they confiscated Bannock Street and surrounding historic homes. This, I thought, was necessary to expand the hospital as needed. Then came the yellow flashing lights on Idaho ...

    Letter: Random thoughts

    1. Who wrote the mediocre review about the latest Cinderella movie and gave it only two stars? What misinformation! This is the most beautiful Cinderella movie ever. Beautiful in dialogue, message, scenery, costumes and love story.

    Letter: Religious freedom

    I was raised a Unitarian. As children we were exposed to all the religions in St. Paul, Minn. We went to them to learn, not bow, not participate in any way. Try it, state senators, you might just learn something. Oh, and while you’re at it, I understand there was a bill floating around that...
