I would respond in depth to Ms. Goldfarb's letter, GeneandCassie, but I first have to stop laughing and settle down after reading " The world’s most-respected climate scientist, James Hansen....". That might take awhile.

Horsey's input is pretty much identical to a horse's output. Like that which had to be avoided when one walked down the center of Main Street behind them back in a late-50's Wa-hi marching band.

There are some credibility issues with the AGU when it comes to AGW. I may even feel compelled to address that in a letter, who knows?

Thank you, Mr. Phillips. I couldn't agree more with your thoughts regarding Mr. Philpot's excellent letter. (Also appreciate the comments on that other guy's missive.....) Cheers, Steve Singleton

stvsngltn 3 weeks, 2 days ago on Editorial - Statewide minimum wage doesn’t need increasing

You got it, Igor (as usual). A government making laws to raise the minimum wage is all about the old redistribution of wealth and politics concept. ("A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.)" Or, as that self-described Progressive Hillary Clinton once said, "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." Sure, she was talking about tax cuts for the "wealthy" but it's basically the same idea. Make those evil employers "pay their fair share!" Never mind that 43% of Americans don't even pay federal income taxes or (as you stated) minimum wage was never intended for which to support a family (like Social Security).

stvsngltn 1 month ago on Column: Climate change debate is about how we adapt

Utter baloney. The science is NOT clear that human activity is a contributor to climate change ... much less a major one. Of course those alarmists who have a political (or other) agenda to push the false AGW hypothesis want all debate about that ended. How unscientific is that?

Appreciate that input, TPeacock, as we usually seem to be hearing just the negative aspects of veterans medical in media. Interesting comments. I can't personally contribute otherwise to the discussion having been fortunate to retain the health insurance from 32 years gov't service (including military) upon retirement and then use that as backup to Medicare when I became of age (of course I pay into both my health insurance and Medicare as always). Therefore I've never taken advantage of the VA system.

Hi Lynn! Glad to see you agree with me that Mr. Popick is a clever writer. "Go '59"! Regards, Steve

Must be a trick question. I learned to swim at the Nat, swam several summers at the Memorial, and spent scores of years since then at pools and beaches all over soaking up rays .... and all I ever got for it was a few freckles.

Good point. Actually, I'm usually for putting a moratorium on ALL new laws .... we have far too many as it is.
