One reader objects to singling out bars as serving a gay clientele.
When there are problems with the E-Star, readers are understandably frustrated

By the acquisition of major newspapers, wealthy Koch brothers of Wichita could purchase the forum for opinion that influences millions of voters. Whether you are conservative or liberal, the prospect of having that much power concentrated in so few hands should be plenty scary.
Americans accustomed to hating the media a popular pastime of self-proclaimed new media, often meaning someone with an iPhone and a laptop should stop hitting snooze on their wakeup call right about now.
Throughout his presidency, Barack Obama has set a very clear tone. Hes made it clear that people who disagree with him are fevered, illegitimate, weird, creepy, dangerous, stupid, confused, ignorant or some other adjective you might assign to a new version of the seven dwarves.
The principles implicated by the murder trial of the Pennsylvania abortion doctor make the trial and the static nature of public opinion significant news items. The significance, however, has been lost in a debate focused on the media rather than the weightier issues the case necessarily entails.
This is the time of year when we are looking forward to graduations. I have heard many graduation speeches, only a few were good. I have given the topic some thought. As a retired senior citizen, if I were asked to speak this is what I would say.
