Letter: It's time for term limits

Letter: It's time for term limits
This is in response to Norm Baker's letter in the Jan. 16 paper. Shame on you for insulting the mentally handicapped. Unlike the idiots in Washington, D.C., they want out. Senators and representatives think the marriage vow "till death do us part" was in their oath of office. It...

Letter: A third-rate country
What a short memory Paul Hoffer, co-chairman of the Kandiyohi County Republican Party (Public Forum, Sept. 1), has. While George W. Bush was driving the country into a bigger depression than the one that started in 1929, the same people were fighting against term limits. We don't...
