    Letter: Keystone pipeline

    It is not often that one can disagree with pro and con arguments at the same time. At issue are the XL pipeline views presented by Gerard and Weisbrot. They are both off the mark by not considering the geopolitical ramifications and offering the evident solution.

    Letter: Idaho Legislature

    The Idaho Legislature's hypocrisy has reached elephantine proportions. On Monday, Feb. 2, a story ran that announced that Idaho state driver's licenses were no longer adequate identification at some locations. The federal government made suggestions for security increases in 2005 that Idaho legislators...

    Letter: INL shipments

    Jim Linhart's letter of Feb. 9 asserts that those "beating the anti-nuclear drum," are falsely claiming that the proposed shipment of nuclear fuel rods will be "processed," when, as Mr. Linhart claims, "... reprocessing of SNF (spent nuclear fuel) at the INL was discontinued years ago."

    Letter: Concealed carry

    I found it incredibly ridiculous that all of our state legislators are allowed to carry a concealed weapon without any training or oversight, whether or not they have a criminal background (which some of them do). This is not the Old West, and they should not be allowed this "privilege."

    Letter: Concealed weapons

    Concealed weapon law costs $3.7 million. This headline is more sensational than factual. The article describes security measures put into place ostensibly necessitated (according to the title) by the recent passage of a law allowing people with legal permits to carry weapons on public school campuses...

    Letter: Immigration

    If the USA is the land of laws as Obama continues to repeat, why does he continue to want to change them?

    Letter: Add the Words

    Reading David Adler's commentary (Feb. 6) about the Legislature once again refusing to Add the Words prompts me to add my own commentary. As I understand them, religious conservatives believe gays choose that lifestyle. Never mind that it beggars the imagination that anyone would make that choice...

    Letter: Thank you

    On Dec. 30, 2014, around 9 a.m., we drove through Starbucks on Broadway in Boise on our way to Phoenix - Fiesta Bowl bound. The lady in front of us anonymously paid for our breakfast and coffee. There are kind and generous people secretly out there. We thank you! Please know your kind gesture brought...

    Letter: Constitution

    A few weeks ago I got a letter from a man named Mark Meckler who is trying to organize a Convention of States under Article 5 of our U.S. Constitution. If my information is correct, this could result in the complete destruction of the Constitution, to-wit: There are no qualifications for delegates...

    Letter: Not elderly

    A lot of talk about adding the words, but one word that media seems to love is "elderly." Many of us would like to see this word eliminated when describing anyone over a certain age. Can't you just say the age of the person, or leave out age altogether? You don't know that person or his/her contribution...
