Letter to the Editor

Poor People in a rich country? Dear Editor, A recent column by Walter Williams extols the virtues of capitalism while decrying socialism.  We don’t have enough room on this page to enter that discussion. But, there are a couple of elements of his argument that beg to be examined more closely: He...
A bridge too far Dear Editor: I would like to add a couple of facts to the information about the Black Thunder Bridge that people might not be aware of (Wrestling with Bridge Problems, NLJ May 22). First, although opening locked gates on both sides of the bridge is a nuisance to those of us who...
Risch disavows “nation building,” Cheney should follow Dear Editor, As a Navy veteran, I’m familiar with the heavy responsibilities and costs of making war.

The very costly World War debts were paid off. A 55,000 mile Interstate highway system was...
