End trade war

Arkansans will be among the hardest hit by President Trump's attempts to strong-arm foreign leaders through economic manipulation.

Open letters to Governor Hutchinson and Education Commissioner Johnny Key

My name is Laura Comstock. I grew up in Mountain Home, then moved to Conway and graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in 2007. Since then, I've worked in the Little Rock School District at Chicot Elementary.

Good stories

I frequently disagree with the extremes of your politics. I do usually enjoy your columnists' positions if for no other reason than simply to read another opinion on an issue. Further, I am often impressed with the width and breath of some of your investigative articles.

Not violent

I truly appreciate your paper's coverage of the mental health [coverage] cuts and the recent rally to protest them ("Mental health cuts stir controversy," Oct. 4).

Anything but Fox

Last week I spent the better part of two hours in a waiting room at the VA hospital here in Little Rock.

McCain, and money better spent elsewhere

I had hoped to refrain from criticizing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) until after his corpse was delivered to the landfill, but, for all of your blathering about how wonderful the recently departed McCain was, you've seriously missed McCain's greatest legacy: President Trump.

Jesus and politics

Master Card

How about a new law? If you want to join a white supremacist organization, you have to take one of those complex DNA tests first. That would cut way down on the membership.

Hill should protest investigation

Second District Congressman French Hill should not go along with the move to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Why all the outrage?

What T Rump did in Helsinki is consistent with who T Rump is.

Misleading

The highway department held a "public hearing" on July 12 at the Wyndham Hotel in North Little Rock about revised plans for Interstate 30 expansion. The options were called "action alternatives."

MAGA?

Make America Great Again? Compared to when? When black Americans were being denied their civil rights, in some cases being lynched, during the era of Jim Crow?

Outraged

I am acutely outraged by what has happened at our southern border due to initiatives by the president and the attorney general.

Bill and Monica

I don't think Clinton's actions rose to the level of an impeachable offense. I do think he is a prime beneficiary of white male privilege and his sense of entitlement is disturbing.

The enemy within

We defeated the Redcoats. Outsmarted the Wehrmacht. Stared down the Red Army and humiliated the Imperial Japanese Army.

Re: bad law

Leave it to a lawyer to twist Scripture to benefit criminals.

Allow comfort dogs

I was dismayed to read of Judge Wendell Griffen's recent ruling against allowing comfort dogs for child sexual abuse victims in criminal court proceedings.

Save The Rep

Having worked all over the U.S. and, in fact, pretty much all over the world in theater, I can say with some authority that the productions at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, both those I have been in and those I have seen, are of the highest quality in every artistic aspect: acting, directing, set, costume and light design, etc.
