WSU president John Bardo needs to wake up and smell the fact that it is not a good thing to have fewer parking spots in the middle of campus due to plopping a new building right in the middle of it.


I would never count among my friends anyone who would wear as smug a look on their face as those red-shirted folks pictured in the paper recently.


I am already so sick of the campaign ads, and we have weeks to go. Maybe there should be a set short time period for TV campaign ads.


If the IRS destroys its records after six months, can somebody please explain how the IRS can wait for three years or more to audit someone (of course to gain penalties and interest)?


Everybody who’s not locked up in a dementia unit knows that in this century of IT processing, nothing is lost accidentally. That’s evidence per se of criminality.


President Obama can be held responsible for 50 percent of economic-related outcomes. But he has not been the problem otherwise. Those problems have resulted from the common fear of venturing away from the familiar foundries of close-minded thinking.


Obama likes to trade people for people. Consider this: Trade a thousand illegal immigrants for our Marine in the Mexico jail.


Sleepless night ahead for me – the very thought of a Hillary Clinton-Michelle Obama ticket (as suggested by a reader) has my hair standing on end.


The contributor who said sending 300 troops to Iraq is a suicide mission could be right. I have the feeling that the troops are to be sure the 5,800 or so Americans in Iraq get on the helicopters when Baghdad falls.

People who claim to support the Constitution’s Second Amendment but don’t include the word “militia” in their understanding are willfully ignorant. They are less committed to America and the Constitution than coping with their fear for life. Support the whole Second Amendment.


Democrats purposely refuse to get it. Mass-murdering gun shooters aren’t likely to target the state Capitol building or City Hall, which have armed security. They prefer unsecured targets like schools and shopping malls.


Hey, lefties: Remember when you told us, “If you don’t like abortion, then don’t get one”? Well, if you don’t like guns, then don’t buy one; and if you don’t like the Bible, then don’t read it. But stop trying to impose your communist ideals on the rest of us.


A boy missing for 11 days was found in his dad’s basement. Did they find the balloon as well?
