Letter: Just Food just fine

No, it isn't just fine. One problem, the ED is gone, but the other problem, the board that failed to do its job and is as culpable as the ED is still there.

Just Food says it was 'shocked' by Farmer's handling of business; whether crimes were committed 'to be determined'

Brenda how can you say they devoted their time and energy when they failed to do what a board member is supposed to do?

Obviously they didn't devote the time needed or were just grossly incompetent.

Brandon, I'm generally not a Bob fan, but he is right and you're wrong. The board failed to exercise their fiduciary responsibility and as such, the poor will suffer and they are personally liable for the mess.

If you can't devote the time to serve on the board then don't do it. The board my rely on the ED but all the donors and people served rely on the board.

The board failed and they own this mess.

"John Kerry hasn't even seen one of the most crucial parts of the Iran agreement"

Stu the agreement is available now which is why we know some of the side deals but Kerry hadn't seen the agreement when we agreed to it.

Do you really trust Iran to live up to their part of the agreement when they have said they want to destroy is and they get to do their own inspections?

Farmer was wrong but the board failed in its responsibilities by not providing the necessary oversight to ensure accountability of their executive director. The ED works for the board and they are ultimately responsible for his actions.

Letter: Empty gesture

It is not a violation of your rights.

Pet Peeve of mine is when people throw around "rights" without understanding what a right is and isn't.

It is a private business and they can set the conditions for entering. You as a free person can choose to agree to them or not.

Letter: Think about it

We agreed to the agreement without knowing all the details and side deals. I don't like it because it releases funds back to Iran who can without penalty discontinue the agreement. So they get their funds and then void the deal?

No Americans will be allowed to do the inspections and in some cases Iran alone will do the inspections.

It is untrue to state that it is either this deal or war.

Think about it, how many of us would personally make a deal with someone as they chant I am going to kill you? So if we wouldn't do it personally why do we want to do it as a nation?

Kansas won't prevent singles from being foster parents

Koch industries specifically prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. Not all companies do so I think based on this it is unlikely Koch will be formulating a myth about gay couples.

Keep in mind they have also stopped asking if you've been convicted of a felony on the job application.

Pretty progressive if you ask me, but hey what so I know?
