Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

For a man who wanted to make a military career for himself, the transition wasn’t easy.

Thoughts on Aging  Sometimes I write about topics that a lot of us think about, but nobody writes about. Today, the topic is aging, and how we feel about it.

Jesus Was Real My interest was piqued upon reading your Crossed column in the November 10 issue entitled, “Jesus: God Man or Good Man?” featuring Pastor Nick Twomey and Gary Singer

Charity as Marketing Tactic In Thomas Kachadurian’s recent guest opinion, “Real Charity,” he explained how big businesses use charity contributions and community programs as marketing and public relations tools
