Letter to the editor: Pitts out of line

"Putting lipstick on a pig" is an idiom common in political language. It does not imply that anyone is a pig. Rather, it refers to the contrast between a person's actual nature and some cosmetic features.

Opinion: Why Clinton must be elected

Some comments on this list, which has been posted several times. Points one and two are unsupported, depending on our accepting that the agreement with the Iranians was a mistake. Point three is not to the point; the Crimea is not mentioned in this article. Point four is without substance; what would you have done? The phrase in point five, "reckless disregard," is not "extreme carelessness." The FBI director chose his language carefully. Point six vastly oversimplifies the problems Egypt is having.

Letter to the editor: What’s next?

The article in "Monkey Cage" says that foreign voters "could have" made the difference in the Al Franken election, a big difference. And this article is drawing some large assumptions from a very small data set. Our esteemed Kansas Secretary of state, certainly not a democrat and probably not lying in this case, estimates that there may be one hundred aliens in Kansas registered to vote.
