Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: Among the many questionable claims in this op-ed (“President in an Orange Jumpsuit,” Nov. 20), this one stands out. Nixon “impeded Vietnam peace talks” to get re-elected. How would that help him get elected? Leftist protesters encouraged our enemies to delay peace. Just as leftist protesters encourage our enemies...
Dear Editor: The closing paragraph in the letter from Bill Payne in the Nov. 20 Post conveys the message that the Confederate monument should be removed. There is a far superior alternative, but it will take time to plan and money to execute. That plan is to erect a statue...

Dear Editor: I want to commend you all and Mr. David Martin especially for the article in the Oct. 16 paper about the Bay of Pigs. It was excellent and amazing to hear the “rest of the story,” as Paul Harvey used to say. We lived in Grand Isle, La., at...
Dear Editor: This is in response to Stefanie Jackson’s article “Students Wanting to Change From Online Learning to Hybrid Find Waiting Lists for Transition,” published in the Oct. 9 Post.
