Letter: Don't need county endorsements
I read with interest your editorial where this paper decided to endorse Alan Welle over Roger Imdieke for Kandiyohi County Commissioner in District 4. I do agree with your analysis that both men would do well if elected. That would have been a great place to end your editorial and...

Letter: Our high rate of incarceration
Welcome to the USA -- home of 5 percent of the world's population and 25 percent of the world's prison population! It's hard to believe but our "sweet land of liberty" has incarcerated more people than those repressive countries like Russia, China or Iran! Are we really that bad or...

Letter: Public vs. private prisons
At Reagan Airport a billboard informs "America - Home of 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prison population." Are we really the world's worst? Apparently, since China and Russia together have fewer prisoners than the 2.3 million incarcerated in America's public...

Letter: The insurance death panels
Last month I laughed at the absurdity of Sarah Palin's "death panel" and Sen. Chuck Grassle's "pulling the plug on granny." I was wrong but so were they. The death panel isn't in the bill; it's in the insurance office. I'd say ask Crystal Lee Sutton but it's too late. Movie buffs...
