The Miss Kansas contestant with tattoos confirmed that beauty and brains don’t always go together. I expected her to put fishhooks in her face and rap in the talent competition. Whatever happened to class?

With “Good Morning America” and now the “Today” show sliding into increasingly sophomoric entertainment programming, I’m hoping that “CBS This Morning” can hold the line on intelligent reporting. The dumbing down of Americans marches on.

The National Rifle Association has filed a brief supporting the American Civil Liberties Union’s challenge of the government phone-tracking program. Strange bedfellows.

When one attains the highest office of the land and has done nothing to merit the honor, arrogance is unavoidable.

George W. Bush’s administration ignored warnings that Osama bin Laden was determined to attack the U.S., and more than 3,000 people died as a result. Remember that the next time you hear complaints about Obama and Benghazi and Sept. 11.

Obama so loved the poor that he created millions more.

Are Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham the Bush-Cheney team of 2013?

Some people want to eliminate the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. What’s next – they don’t like the color red on our flag? Find a country that you like. Don’t change ours.

I’m tired of hearing that we’re in a recession. This is a full-blown depression and it’s going to get worse with by far the worst president in American history trying to lead this country. God help us.

I find it hard to believe the economy is improving when wages are declining.

Rather than because of the recall, maybe all the rain fell in Colorado because of its pot stance. Hooray.

Media: When you have a story about single mothers, please tell us where the father is.

When you buy a home, it costs to maintain the home. If you cannot pay for maintenance of your home, please sell and rent.

Within the pages of a single book, the Bible, are found the answers to all the problems we face today, if we will only read and believe.

A visitor from Missouri praised our own Eagle for not publishing “liberal hogwash” (Sept. 14 Letters to the Editor). I hope all you conservatives who constantly whine about The Eagle’s bias toward liberalism had your reading glasses on and paid attention.

Thank you for Charles Krauthammer’s commentary (Sept. 14 Opinion). Keep it up.

I frequently watch Fox News on television, and nothing tickles me more than to hear a Fox News contributor disagree with the misleading remarks of the Fox News commentator .

Dear Eagle: Enough already with the half-front pages.
