This is not really intended as a letter to the editor, but more as a note of gratitude for this editorial about the circumstances surrounding the National Guard border mission. I appreciate the recent stories by Allie Morris and Gromer Jeffers Jr., and I particularly appreciate the editorial. Thank you for shining enough light on the situation that it finally is getting some of the attention it has needed.

Biden being undercutBiden is not “struggling.” He is being undercut every step of the way by citizens who refuse to do their part to eradicate this scourge. Can you imagine if we’d behaved this way during the polio crisis?The major flaw in President Joe Biden’s plan to address the pandemic is his thinking that the American people would behave rationally and do what is necessary to quell the rising tide of COVID-19. The same may be said for much of his other planning that is finding no traction with “we, the people.”

FirstEnergy name still a blot on Browns stadium: Letter to the EditorLetter to the Editor: It's time to 'remove this symbol of corruption from a prominent Cleveland building,' writes John Koch. Do you think FirstEnergy Stadium should be renamed? First and foremost the team should be sold to the city of Cleveland & own by the city and the fans, & yes the stadium needs a new name, how about The Cleveland Browns Stadium, just a thought…. The owner of the team is corrupt, too. No. Stadium naming rights are sacrosanct and should not be disturbed (unless a higher bidder comes along).

This is not really intended as a letter to the editor, but more as a note of gratitude for this editorial about the circumstances surrounding the National Guard border mission. I appreciate the recent stories by Allie Morris and Gromer Jeffers Jr. The pronouncement that no ratepayer money was used on the stadium was made as a matter of fact, dismissive of any further discussion., and I particularly appreciate the editorial. The candidate must also have prior digital news experience, social media specialization and in building audiences. Thank you for shining enough light on the situation that it finally is getting some of the attention it has needed. Time to revisit this subject and remove this symbol of corruption from a prominent Cleveland building. The cries from the soldiers alone was not enough to bring such action, which is truly a shame. Totenberg also reported that Chief Justice John Roberts had “in some form asked the other justices to mask up,” prior to that hearing, a request that Gorsuch, who sits next to Sotomayor on the bench in the high court, had evidently refused.

My son is one of those serving. Disclaimer. Prior work and experience on creating content, engagement and audience on social and off-platforms is a plus. He and I appreciate your work on this more than I am able to express. Peggy Phillips, Carrollton Biden being undercut Re: “Biden struggles to deliver on pandemic promises — One year into his tenure, many parts of his 200-page plan have not been executed,” Wednesday news story I take exception to your headline. Do you honestly believe that Biden would struggle to deliver on pandemic promises if every eligible resident got vaccinated and wore a mask? It’s simple science. USA TODAY recognizes and appreciates the benefits of diversity in the workplace. Refusal of a vaccine allows a virus to mutate again and again — thus making it almost impossible to stop.” Fox News ran.

Biden is not “struggling.” He is being undercut every step of the way by citizens who refuse to do their part to eradicate this scourge., Inc. Can you imagine if we’d behaved this way during the polio crisis? Deborah Kronschnabel, Grapevine Divided we fall The major flaw in President Joe Biden’s plan to address the pandemic is his thinking that the American people would behave rationally and do what is necessary to quell the rising tide of COVID-19. The same may be said for much of his other planning that is finding no traction with “we, the people.” Apparently, we, of the “Divided States of America,” would rather wrangle about our petty differences than work together in any rational way to solve the many issues that plague us. In addition, Gannett Co.

We expect a deus ex machina to descend, wave a magic wand and deliver us from our ills. But the bitter truth of hard work born out of respect for each other’s humanity marks the commencement of a real resolution to the many ills that assail us. Biden’s failing is thinking we are still more united as a people than not, and he is wrong in that fatal assumption., Inc. John Zeigler, Denton Hypocrisy in action Voting rights are voted down - how hypocritical is that? So-called Republicans say they demand the power of the vote. But then add that we, the people of the Republic, may not have it.

(Baiting us to rage.’s Recruitment Department at Recruit@gannett.) Paula Craig, Dallas/Oak Cliff GOP misinformation I recently received a mailer in my mailbox from a Republican running for state representative. The content was typical of the misdirection, misinformation and downright lies so prevalent in the broken right wing of the Republican Party. I now share some of the comments from this propaganda: “2nd Amendment sanctuary state.” This past year there were over 600 mass shootings in America.

gunviolencearchive.org/past-tolls We do need a sanctuary from the gun nuts and the National Rifle Association. “Banned CRT from schools.” Critical race theory is not being taught in any Texas schools and never has been, so there was nothing to ban. “Banned state income tax.

” Texas has never had a state income tax. “Build the wall, secure the wall.” The protesting on last Jan. 6 and all those mass shootings were done by “good old boy” Americans. We are in more danger from our neighbors than from a 12-year-old girl from Guatemala.

“Banned vax mandates.” So far more than 5.5 million Texans have been infected and more than 77,000 have died because of politicians’ “medical” advice. Charlie Henry, Royse City Success starts with coach Like millions of other Cowboys fans, I was both disappointed and bitter about the team’s collapse in yet another playoff game. A team so rich in talent should have laid a blitzkrieg path all the way to the Lombardi trophy.

While the commentators will argue point and counterpoint and team ownership will again make excuses, one key factor remains: the principle that a team (in sports or the workplace) will adopt the persona of its direct leader. Nothing personal against the likes of Mike McCarthy, Jason Garrett, etc., but they were merely unemotional statues on the sideline. The team results, and lack of success, reflect that. The Cowboys need that fiery leader with passion, energy and emotion.

A leader committed to team discipline. The team needs that coach who is respected, revered and feared yet whose values are adopted by every single member of the team. Until the Cowboys ownership can find Jimmy Johnson 2.0, it will be more of the same — an uninspiring leader on the sidelines and more disappointing seasons. Steve Kestner, Anderson, Ind.

And ends with the coach My late father was known for saying that in a close football game, the last 2 minutes of the game always came down to coaching, which was severely lacking in Sunday’s game. Jerry, you have some big decisions to make. Nancy Scholberg, East Dallas .
