Speak Out: Defining political enemies
The Star wrote that it’s “not surprising that Obama keeps tabs on political enemies.” When did people with different views become enemies? And will you feel the same way when a different political party is in power? I foresee your loud protestations of corruption then.

“President” of what? Thankfully, Sen. Jeff Sessions was rejected for an appointment as a U.S. district judge over two decades ago due to charges of racism.

Speak Out: Justification of the death penalty
I disagree with Speak Out writer Margit Suesser. I believe in the death penalty, if for no other reason than it guarantees this monster will never claim another victim.

The Supreme Court’s ruling on the campaign-finance law was not a wise ruling. I fear it may upset the balance of power (which I suspect the ones voting in favor of the law had in mind) and threaten our democracy in the years to come.
