Editor, Times-Advocate:  On a Wednesday morning in late August, the first post in my feed read: “I refuse to acknowledge autumn.” I had just spent over fifteen hours traveling with eleven high school seniors. Weary with more than jet lag, I felt the full force of those words. I don’t want to go back to school, I thought. I am […]

Letter to the Editor: COLOR ME IMPRESSED WITH DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE

Editor, Times-Advocate: Cavuto’s interview with Ammar Campa Najarr after the Hunter indictment, reflects even more contrast between Ammar’s values, and absence of values applied by Duncan Hunter during his brief, but negative political career, that seemed more like a Race to the Bottom.     The video interview on FOX News showed off Ammar’s intellectual muscle, and his heart.   […]

Letter to the Editor: DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A DICTIONARY IS?

DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A DICTIONARY IS? Editor, Times-Advocate: I’ll not copy and paste the dictionary definition of liberalism, you can look that up yourself and you should because your editorial definition is foreign to Webster’s and Cambridge. And it just gets worse from there. Do you even know what a dictionary is? You write, “(t)here is no longer […]

This sycophant for the developers has drunk their kool aid and regurgitated their contents on your readers. The housing shortage we face in the county will not be addressed by […]
