'Before it is too late'
To the Editor:

The history of the Jewish people can be traced genealogically and historically through the Bible, the writings of Josephus and other famed historians, but also, critically important to today's scientifically oriented seekers, through the incredible archeological discoveries of the ruins of ancient Jerusalem and other famous Biblical locations. Decades of digging have produced a treasure trove of exciting findings!

Welcome Putin with open arms
To the Editor:

When the news first came out that the Russians had tampered with our elections by spreading lies on the internet I was outraged. A recent event, however, has caused me to pause in my outrage and rethink how I feel about Russian meddling.

Allowing ourselves to be deceived
To the Editor:

People my age surely remember the quote from the comics page character Pogo: "We have met the enemy, and he is us." That bit of wisdom applies to the discussions about Russian meddling in our Presidential election and the roles of Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

Response to Bada letter
To the Editor:

Trump and patriotism
To the Editor:

I have a question for Donald Trump. What's worse: kneeling down during the national anthem or dodging the draft to avoid military service to the country you claim to so honor and respect, along with its flag and anthem?

'No real debate'
To the Editor:

I want to thank Vern Moore for his Oct. 13 response to my letter of Sept. 29 about climate change. As expected, he perfectly illustrates my main point: there can be no real debate because the two sides don't share the same reality.

Moore should be careful about who he champions
To the Editor:

Vern Moore (Lakeland Times letter, Oct. 3, 2017) champions the views of Dr. Roy Spencer, a supposed "prominent climate change scientist," for "science based truths," such as "CO2 is not the major greenhouse gas, it is water vapor" and "We'd be in a hell of a mess if we allow the alarmists to tinker around with the levels of atmospheric CO2 to the point that atmospheric oxygen is reduced excessively."

Risking the ire of the self-righteous patriot, I take exception to the letter writer who finds it very disturbing that some NFL players and teams are protesting injustice in America by kneeling before or during the National Anthem and therefore insulting our flag.

Losing democracy and the power of the people
To the Editor:

It's going the way of the frog in the pot of slowly increasing heated water.

They say if you throw a frog in a pot of very hot water it will immediately jump out. But if you put it in a pot of water and slowly turn up the temperature, it will stay in the pot until it boils to death.
