Good for Smith’s for standing up to high credit card fees

After reading about Smith’s supermarkets deciding to stop accepting Visa credit cards, I feel it is about time that all of the big-box stores took a stand against the major credit card companies for charging these fees of $2 to $3 or more per transaction. Isn’t it bad enough that the credit card companies are charging consumers anywhere from 6 percent to 30 percent interest on their purchases?

They are greedy from the word go. Nice going, Smith’s. I hope all the other chains follow your lead.

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.
