Dairy products require sacrifice (07/23/10)
Milk and all dairy products that we enjoy so much do not come without a sacrifice. The only way a dairy cow can produce milk is if she gives birth to a calf.

Who will the U.S. be at war with in 5 years? (07/23/10)
To the editor: Who will the US be at war with in five years? I know this may seem an odd question to ask, but I think it is the right question.

In 1936 most would have thought war with those countries absurd...
