All political groups have share of 'moonbats'

I am a liberal who agrees with the June 12 letter by Dennis Gervais regarding the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws and Arizona's right to identify people who are there illegally.

But when Gervais writes, "Yet every two-bit, politically correct, left-leaning moonbat appears to prefer ginning up the 'race card' factor, instead of the facts," I have to wonder if he is trying to start an argument or state an opinion.

There are more than enough two-bit, politically incorrect, right-leaning moonbats who disregard the facts to go around.

Perhaps we could discuss this over snacks and refreshments. We could have a Tea Party.

Paper's election coverage left voter well-prepared

I have been voting for 56 years and I have never been as prepared to enter a voting booth in my life as I was on Tuesday past.

You and your staff left no stone unturned when it came to telling your reading public about the candidates and the referendums, not only once but repeatedly.

The coverage was unbiased, as it should be, so that the public could chew it, digest it and make up their own minds without a reporter's personal opinion interfering. You are to be commended for a job well done.

Look at outdoor decks missed two at DiMillo's

Shannon Bryan's review on the best outdoor decks in the June 10 "Get Out" column was very good.

She wrote about most of the scenes on Portland's outdoor decks, and very nicely explained what they had to offer.

How did she miss DiMillo's? It has two decks. One is the port side deck. People on this deck can interact with the boaters and hear some very exciting stories about what goes on at the waterfront.

DiMillo's topside deck has a panoramic view of the inner harbor. Watch the ferry boats depart and dock. It is a beautiful deck, nicely decorated and with a classy atmosphere.

It doesn't get any better in the summertime.
