Really, Tom?  Just what most Black, brown people love -- when some random retired white guy advises them that it's really the party of 95% white folk (with a horrible history of regressive voter suppression, among other things) who have their best interests at heart.  And the week you sat…

While I disagree with most of your characterizations, and know that some of your statements of medical "fact" (about face masks) are incorrect, I'm not going to waste my time trying to convince an obvious "true believer" (i.e: You've written, and the Morrison County Record has published, …

Thanks for the belly laugh, Ruby!  You can't be serious, though, right?!?  On the off chance that you are (and since you enjoy Biblical references and God-talk), meditate on these:  Matthew 7: 5 -, or John 8: 7 -

Have you ever watched State TV/Fox News (or listened to any of the rig…

First, to whoever is writing the scripts/form letters to help local Repub's write l.t.e.'s, again, MN requested $16 million from FEMA, not $500 million, for rebuilding some infrastructure (to accommodate small businesses in their insurance-subsidized rebuilding). It's sad to hear that a f…

It's time to dismantle the hackneyed and inaccurate "bad apples" excuse: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/31/time-toss-bad-apples-excuse/

Deb L commented on Embarrassment to Minnesota

First, step away from the ledge, and don't do anything too extreme.  Mr. Bednark sounds like he's on the verge of despair.  Believe me --- I get it, as living through the horror of Trump at the helm is enough to drive the best of us into despair (especially in the middle of a pandemic and…

At least we can thank Tom West for being entirely predictable. What he seems incapable of appreciating is that it is an act of great respect to, in peaceful protest, hold our nation and it's leaders to the highest ideals of our Founders. Bring down those horrid statues and monuments which…

Yawn. The Republican narrative -- especially for the future "Gazelka for Gov." crowd -- is already perfectly memorized, and we'll see a version of this letter now in these pages and elsewhere for months to come.  They will pay lip-service to some pablum they call reform, and downplay the …

Reading this letter evokes a sense of being on the outside of a town feud -- one citizen of Albany accusing another of being a hypocrite because she is "an over-educated type". (??)   The writer's words, "Most overeducated types are hypocrites who must be shown as such."

So, I won't…
