Letters to the Editor

Right now, GOP is party of Donald Trump, Roy Moore

To the editor: I am simply amazed at the hypocrisy of the Dec. 9 Sentinel editorial on sexual harassment. Who do they point to as guilty of these offenses? Democrat Sen. Al Franken, Democrat representative John Conyers, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, and NBC’s Matt Lauer — democrats, ...

Lobbyists’ double dipping must be put to a stop

To the editor: According to a recent Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, the campaign arm of a powerful Harrisburg lobbying firm has helped to elect or re-elect a third of the Republicans who now dominate the Pennsylvania Senate. Across the Capitol in the House, the campaign offshoot of another ...

We’ve already received the greatest Christmas gift

Editor’s note: This letter was originally published Dec. 22, 2016. The author has requested it to be republished again this year. To the editor: I would like to lay politics aside for a bit and talk about something more important, especially at this time of year, but also every day of the ...

America can’t be great again without God, Jesus

To the editor: I’m just going to put this out there. President Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” in its context is a false hope. We as a nation have lost our moral turpitude. The past two mass shootings and recent sexual assault controversy is evidence enough. But ...

Double standard exists between Weinstein, PSU

To the editor: For the past 20 years, Hollywood elitists have winked, joked and turned a blind eye as Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and allegedly raped aspiring young actresses. Now many of those same elitists, including Jane Fonda, are being heralded as heroic for coming forward with ...
