Letter: Are we wealthy or poor?
I've got to get new glasses so I can read the fine print again. Just reading the headlines can be very confusing and sometimes hilarious. There was one in the July 19 paper that read "So, just who can actually class themselves as middle class?" asked my wife Jan, are we middle...

Letter: Scary, angry tax rhetoric
Referring to Tim Chermak's letter, Oct. 2: In my letter of Sept. 29, I simply said the Republicans were in charge when the stock market crashed in 1929 and I blamed their Congress (some might have been Democrats) for doing nothing to aid innocent victims of the disaster that followed....

Letter: A new national energy tax
