Failed government promise? Who could have guessed?

To the editor:

I am shocked the state is having problems funding the Millennium Scholarship. Kenny Guinn promised us a decade ago that it would all be paid by the tobacco companies, and no taxpayer money would be needed. Could it be the political class lied to us?

Cop shootings

To the editor:

Vin Suprynowicz’s June 27 column on the shooting of drug dealer Trevon Cole is an example of yellow journalism. His intent was to inflame public opinion about the police.

Mr. Suprynowicz suggests that officers are taught to plant evidence and to hope they only shoot Negroes and homeless people. Pure crap. In almost every police shooting, the victim chose not to comply with commands of the officer.

Instead of printing lies, why doesn’t Mr. Suprynowicz attend the citizens academy and then write a column?

Something scary

To the editor:

I’m not a huge fan of Sen. Harry Reid. I believe that his campaign ad against Sharron Angle that mentions massages for prisoners is a red herring. I also believe that her Social Security comments might have been taken out of context.

But one thing that scares me is her proposal of a “Second Amendment solution” for things that don’t go her way.

No matter how one tries to spin that, she is advocating an armed insurrection to overthrow the U.S. government. And that is the definition of treason.

Not voting in November is not an option. Too many men and women have died in battle so that I may enjoy that privilege. So, for me, the choice boils down to the most powerful man in the U.S. Senate or a seditionist. Fan or not, I’m voting for Sen. Reid.
