Re: Letters to the Editor

We’re in a war. Something always goes wrong in a war, and our military leaders have made mistakes in Iraq. But quitting and leaving would amount to defeat for the U.S. in the global war on terrorism and create chaos. Quitters never win.

Re: Much ado about a horse

What a waste of 870 words on this rant. Is the Vail Daily that desperate for articles and commentary that it fills its pages with this sort of ridiculous rant when, in fact, there are more interesting and more compelling issues that could be addressed in the Daily?

Re: Much ado about a horse

Wild animals undoubtedly communicate with each other ” simply watch coyotes, whales, horses. Instinctively, animals gave up communicating with humans about 60,000 years ago when man developed the hyoid bone and the capacity for “higher” communication. (Some would say it was 10,000 years ago, when God/the Bible told man he should dominate animals.) Man’s fear of danger, and love of power, has caused the extermination of thousands of species.

Re: Much ado about a horse

That is what is great about capitalism, we are all free to spend as much money on whatever thing we want. If you think it is stupid then don’t spend the money.

Re: Charter troubles have schools preparing

On a different note, how did the school get into such deep financial debt? Is it all innocent, or was there some mismanagement of funds? How could the school administrators not see this coming? Do the parents feel betrayed? I hope Stone Creek makes it. I really do.

Re: Frankenburgers

I assure you that the cattle industry is not raking in the cash from things like this. Just ask any “family farm rancher” who has to call it quits everyday in this country.

Re: Legal problems, indeed

Sheriff Joy Hoy believes that he can pick and choose what he wants to enforce.

Remember when he said that he would not enforce the new smoking ordinance? Yet at the same time he wanted a new seat belt law.

Re: Legal problems, indeed

It is law enforcement’s job to enforce the law. Illegals commit a misdemeanor (instantly) the first illegal entry here, a felony after that. Each stolen or fake ID is a felony, so if cops don’t want do their job may I (respectfully) suggest another line of work?
