In Your Opinion: Many have died to keep our nation free
Jeers to Mr. Ryan and "Bring on socialism" (April 12-13) also a couple of "atta-girls" to Mrs. Bordinger, who ruffled Mr. Ryan and mate's feathers. If they believe Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland are so great, why aren't they and several million other illegal aliens over there?Continued ...
In your opinion: Attacking character not warranted

In Your Opinion: State needs to prioritize rehab
I watch a lot of TV, too much, perhaps, but the shows are better and better. I often focus on shows relating to alcohol. I just watched the last segment of "Shameless," about an outrageous Chicago family in the drunken downward crazy spiral of poverty and alcohol, and I am looking forward to the final season of "Mad Men," which is often three-piece-suit drinking, but often with the same sad outcome.Continued ...

In Your Opinion: Bring on the socialism
I was elated to read the headline above the March 26th letter of Mary Bordinger: "America becoming a socialist state." "Well," I said to my better-half, "it's about time. Now we'll have single-payer health insurance, low-cost housing, investment in mass transit and education. There'll be more economic equality.

In Your Opinion: 'Free' education should only go so far
