Will my grandchildren ever have the opportunity to see a glacier up close? I can’t confidently say that they will.
A recent New Yorker article mentions that if Yankee Stadium’s 50,287 seats were filled with that city’s homeless, there would still be several thousands left standing.
Letter writer Norman Osterman on Nov. 1 accused me of using “stunning mental gymnastics” regarding my opinion on the temporary government shutdown. I’ll accept that. Although intended as criticism, Wiktionary’s definition of mental gymnastics is “difficult and complex logical thought processes.”
Tuesday’s front page story about ethanol reminded me of the old adage, “If it sounds too good to be true ...”
My grandson-in-law teaches in a state that has adopted Common Core.
Right now, the U.S. feels that it needs to increase the money supply to stimulate the current weak economy.
The nation has a debt problem and needs to get its spending under control.
I would like to recognize the Pioneer Middle School Junior Honor Society. Living by the park comes with many pleasures, but a huge downside is the many leaves that fall this time of year.
Just two days before Veterans Day I flew back from the Washington, D.C., area where parades and celebrations are larger-than-life events full of pomp and ceremony. A huge military celebration of any type is a sight to behold and as an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran these events make me stand a little taller.

I note again what I view as a copy error that should have been readily identified prior to the U-B going to press in the U-B. Regarding the article in the business section on Monday titled “Automatic cuts might bite more in 2014,” you fail to identify one person in the picture caption.
Imagine a farmer naming his family farm “GMO Farms” and advertising that his family farm only raises the most genetically modified crops. That these crops are engineered to grow faster, bigger and cheaper than all the other crops available. That all GMO’s are approved safe and healthy for human consumption by all government agencies and the judges and lawyers who defend those agencies. That the scientific consensus is that these crops are also good for the planet and better for the environment, and that by buying the GMO food that his farm produces you are doing your part to support your local economy and save the environment.
Today is a big one for Washington state’s economy.
I found Walla Walla City Council member Shane Laib’s recent letter to the editor (Oct. 31) difficult to understand.
When the shovels — albeit ceremonially — went into the ground last week in College Place, construction started that will result in the city having its own high school.
