    Letter to the Editor: Refugees are not alone in looking for housing

    I’ve been following, with much interest, the stories of the immigrants that arrived by the hundreds in Portland. It has been reported that they will all have to leave the Portland Expo by mid August, and officials are trying to find permanent housing. I have a family member who has their name on a waiting […]

    Letter to the Editor: Trump’s immigrant roots don’t go very deep

    I read that our President has suggested to four women of color in our congress that they return to their countries of origin and straighten things out there. Since our President is only two generations away from his German immigrant grandfather, perhaps he should go back to Germany and help out there. I am sure […]

    Letter to the Editor: Good people are being driven out at EPA

    Letter to the Editor: Coverage of racist incident disappoints

    I am writing to express my extreme disappointment at the way the Portland Press Herald described allegations of racist harassment by Florida tourist Randall Hunt against Shay Stewart-Bouley. In particular, I take issue with three aspects of the coverage. First, by making reference to the topic of Ms. Stewart-Bouley’s conversation, the paper wrongly insinuates that […]

    Letter to the Editor: Journalists, please examine your bias

    Hello, I am writing in response to the article about Randall Hunt (FL) and his racist behaviour towards Shay Stewart-Bouley.

This article is an example of white […]

    Letter to the Editor: America is not the democracy we want

    America is no democracy. Maybe it never has been since the Electoral College has always meant that all votes are not created equal. Individual voters in North Dakota have much more say in the election of presidents than voters in California as each person controls more Electoral College votes. That said, most Americans like to […]
