    Bob Armstrong: Stretching the truth

    Thom Tillis’ TV ad stated that he was a partner at IBM. As a retired IBM employee, I would like to point out that IBM is a corporation and does not have partners like a law firm or accounting firm. At best he was a business partner, a contractual arrangement. He was what amounts to a contract...

    Russell Catania: Inconsiderate chaos

    Why are so many people so inconsiderate of others? A Texas woman recently decided to change her baby’s diaper on a chair in the dining area of a pizzeria restaurant. She said there was no changing table in the restroom, and she didn’t want to walk out to her van to do it.

    Paul Bassett: Zero sense from Zane

    A couple of thoughts regarding J. Peder Zane’s Aug. 27 column “Nothing to dig about debt delusions”: If he’s that resentful of people who consider education, transportation and (gasp!) immunizations to be within the scope of the public good, then perhaps he should seek...

    Anne Russell: A sane decision

    Regarding the Aug. 22 news article “Judge blocks school vouchers”: Thanks to Judge Robert Hobgood for his ruling, which injected sanity into the crazy idea that our public tax dollars may go into the pockets of private schools, which are not public schools and which promote religion...

    Thomas Magnani: Easing growth

    I recently received a notice from the Town of Cary regarding a request by a housing management company to rezone a nearby property from one home per acre to five homes per acre. The applicant’s minimum estimate for the increase in students from this development is 38 students.

    Jeff Albright: U.N. a joke

    Where is the United Nations? What is its purpose in this world? Why does America spend millions of taxpayer money on an organization that does nothing? Turn the United Nations building into a large 7-Eleven store and then maybe America and the world would be better served.
