    Letter: Election prediction

    It's certain that many phony computer "glitches" will pop up this November when minorities, college students and women attempt to obtain voter identifications in racist, voter-suppression states like Texas and North Carolina (Thanks, Chief Justice Roberts and our do-nothing Congress).

    Big shame on you Herald, because I need to watch my verbiage. Your willingness to put such a lopsided cartoon (Opinion, April 17) about the rancher in Nevada whose family has owned this land since the 1800s and have been grazing their cattle on this same land.

    Letter: TV advertising

    Is anyone as annoyed as much as I that there is little truth in TV advertising? Advertising is almost as corrupt as government. Speaking of corruption: why spend $1.1 million in Franklin County for software to stop misuse (stealing) of funds. Hire honest people, starting at the top.
