Reader Opinions

Rolf Westgard’s guest opinion is filled with dazzling statistics: 18 percent; 39,000 tons; 87,000 ounces; 1,000 pages; 720 million dollars; 25 years; 6,000 acres; etc. None, however, support in any way his opinion that Minnesota has the technical expertise, political will and financial commitment to “regulate” large-scale sulfide mining in this water-rich and valuable environment.

A simple test Ever wonder if you are a Republican or a democrat? Here's a simple test. If you don't like guns: a Republican doesn't buy any; a Democrat wants all guns outlawed.

What a nice free campaign ad for Stewart Mills III on the front page of the "Republican" Dispatch! I'm sure happy that those that work at Fleet Farm don't have to worry about preexisting conditions.
