I agree that “illegal immigrant” is very poor English. However, “undocumented immigrant” is equally incorrect. If they are illegal or undocumented, they cannot be immigrants. They are aliens and therefore committing a crime by standing on U.S. soil. Law enforcement has no lawful choice but to arrest and either imprison or deport them.


I work with some crazy liberal Bush haters. They’re still belly-aching about George Bush. Everything bad in the world is Bush’s fault. They are blind to what Obama is doing to this country.


I am a combat-wounded veteran and I can say anything I want about the Bush Library. If it’s a waste, it’s a waste. And I was drafted.


If President Obama had gone to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, it would have been equivalent to honoring Sen. Joe McCarthy for his public service.


Obamacare cannot survive and will hurt many before its ultimate demise.


There should have been a background check on the persons who planted the bomb at the Boston Marathon.


I am beyond appalled that one letter writer used the words “God” and “guns” in the same sentence (“Process worked,” April 29 Letters to the Editor).


Note to Sen. Jerry Moran (May 3 WE Blog): Nothing will prevent criminals from getting guns. They are criminals.


Not to take away from Jackie Robinson’s achievements, but he was not the first black man in major league baseball. With apologies, look it up.


Why can’t companies offer free online job training? Applicants could gain specific knowledge before they applied for the job. The Internet trumps any excuses for on-the-job-training being time-consuming and expensive.


Hutchinson built a new homeless shelter that is tornado-proof. How about giving the homeless jobs instead?


What exactly is that big propeller north of Hartman Arena? It never turns.


A national restaurant chain claims to have boneless chicken. Don’t believe them. I found out the hard way they are not telling the truth.


There is no such thing as a dumb question, but there certainly are a whole bunch of very inquisitive idiots.


I love those Walmart plastic bags. They are just large enough to hold a 12-pack of empty beer cans.


Kudos to the Dillons store at 21st and Amidon. “Dual flush” handles are installed in the men’s room toilets: up for liquid waste, down for solid waste. Buying groceries and conserving water – what a beautiful way to multitask.
