In this election, don't vote too early

Many people like to vote early to eliminate the last-minute rush, or to preclude something happening which would stop them from going to the polls on Election Day. In theory this is a great idea, but there are some perils that folks should think about.

Intersection not bad if you're careful

I came to Robinson in 1984 and travel the Country Club/Prison Road-1A intersection (letter to the editor, Aug. 29 Daily News) at least once a week. True,it is an angling intersection. The roadway is wide at the intersection and it is easy to square up to 1A. Doing this allows you to see in both directions with ease. A full stop and patience will let you proceed safely.

I've been watching the flap on TV and the web about San Francisco's quarterback sitting during the National Anthem. While I accept he has the right to do it, I have to say, "What a naive idiot!" He's an idiot if he thinks anyone respects him for his display on the sidelines and he's naive if he believes his stunt will have any impact.

Why don't billionaires reinvest in America?

Billionaires - I don't understand their thinking. I do understand them wanting to make money, but it's what they do afterwards that confuses me.

Taxpayers 'reward' companies for leaving

About seven years ago, the American taxpayer bailed out General Motors to the tune of $51 billion. They have rewarded us by building a $1 billion plant in Mexico.

Ignoring God part of 'downward spiral'

Watching recent news events and more especially events since Ferguson, Mo. and Baltimore a year ago, one can't help noticing our nation is spinning out of control and nobody seems to know how or why it is happening.
