LETTER: When is a debate not really a debate?

The Biden Democrats have recently agreed to hold debates with Donald Trump. Except they are not really agreeing to debate, are they? I suppose that, in today’s world of fake news, fake debates are the norm. We as Americans have come to accept this fake reality. Is anyone really interested in calling it a debate when the two candidates give scripted campaign speeches?

There will be no audience. That way there are no witnesses or distractions. Joe Biden must not be distracted. That would be a no-no. The Dems’ favorite fake news channel, CNN, will provide the monitors. The microphone will be controlled. That’s a must. Mr. Biden just might say something, uh, wrong. The questions will be known well ahead of time so that answers will be on cheat sheets and teleprompters.

Best of all, pretend that you are really bold by calling for a nondebate debate. It doesn’t work, does it? But what choice do the Democrats have?

Remember, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Ghandi and Sir Thomas More — all innocent men — were also declared to be guilty.

LETTER: No conspiracy involving Hunter’s laptop

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.

LETTER: Red Rock development ‘compromise’ is depressing

Red Rock Canyon is a fragile natural wonder. To claim that 3,500 homes and the traffic that goes with them, and changing the nature of the watershed, will not negatively impact the area is absurd.
